Hiya everyone~ I've only been doing this for three days now (yay for free trial thingy) and I'm still pretty hyped about it. I have a personal fitness class in school that I do along with this (Been doing that for almost three weeks) so I'm pretty good. But my eating habits are kinda... Yeah.. Not pretty. I was just wondering if anyone had anyways that would make it easier to eat better. Like little hints or tips. The biggest problem I have is not eating all the crap my parents buy. Other than that I'm good. But that stuff really adds up quickly and makes me sick, but I keep eating it anyways. So, yeah, please help me.

Hi, Becca. Since I was younger I have had this habit of eating till I'm satisfied. Don't over eat, till you're stuffed. You can still have your cookie and eat it too but instead of 3 or more try having 2 or one and then gradually stopping. Just say to yourself instead of that 1 cookie you'll do 20 crunches. Or if you have 1 cookie you'll do 30 crunches. Or buy some carrots just for you munch on those. Etc. It doesn't work for everyone, some ppl may disagree with my method but whatever works for you. Give it...

I think that is the hardest situation. Having the stuff right there and available is so different from making the decisions about what food to even buy & bring into my house.

You should ask your parents for support. Maybe more supply of healthy snacks like baby carrots, cottage cheese, nuts & seeds, plain yogurt & frozen blueberries, fresh fruit, protein shake. Carbs should be in the form of whole grains of possible, not just white bread or baked goods.

Breaking out of the snack cycle, especially sugary snacks, is really hard. It affects ppl differently but most feel an intense craving for more.

I use unlimited veggie & fruit diet to help. It's simple. If i get a craving, I eat, but just not exactly what I'm craving. But the trick is to have those alternatives available, AND making a really strong effort to re-program your thought patterns to not view passing up on those "treats" as a missed opportunity, but to start viewing them as not even treats at all. I've gotten a lot better by recognizing how crappy and moody I feel after eating something like ice cream or cookies. Once I break out of the cycle it's so obvious how bad it actually was.

While you're in their house, you'll def need at least the partial support of your parents, so you gotta try to tell em how important that is. I can't imagine success being possible without it, unless you have an exceptional job & the means to define your own food supply.

Good luck

Also : don't hold yourself to high standards, life change is a big process. If you go all or nothing it'll def end up as nothing. There is no failure, just constant new opportunities for growth.

When you walk into the kitchen try ftom the start to eat something else than the unhealthy stuff your parents buy because onxe you start its even harder to stop.
and always drink water instead of soft drinks or stuff including sugar. I hope i could help you and good luck :)

Hey... i totally get what you're going through! 
Log what you eat, even if you overeat.
Don't blame yourself if you slip up every once in a while. 
Keep your healthy snacks at the front of the fridge.

Its been a figurative marathon for me, but I just try to keep on keeping on.  I've lost 14 lbs and gained a lot of muscle.  I am going on vacay in less than a week and I am going to try not to slip too much while I am gone!  Peace!
