If you are addicted to empty calorie carbs like I was, giving up the whites is hard to do. It took me following a rigid plan like Medifast to finally say "sayonara" to those wily whites.
Here's how I found out I am cured:
|I used to be addicted to foods that|
contained sugar and white flour
Last night a box of goodies arrived from my husband's daughter loaded with chocolate peanut butter balls and to-die-for peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. I pondered the idea of ignoring them altogether but decided to have just a taste of each to honor the sender.
|Mmmm... chocolate peanut butter balls |
from my daughter-in-law. The insides
have that delicious malt-bally crunch.
Last year I ate more than a dozen.
Instead, I drank some water to cleanse my palate, then mixed up some Medifast brownie batter. I thoroughly enjoyed my substitute chocolatey nightcap that left me feeling satisfied without jangling my nerves.
Even after I lose my last few pounds I plan to continue to keep Medifast brownie mix and a few other no-sugar sweets on hand to satisfy my sweet tooth without making me feel shaky.
