Homework For Day 16
Sunday, March 03, 2019
t'm not sure I agree with the concept of the first two bites being the most satisfying. When I have something that I really have a craving for I'm satisfied with every bite. When I don't go out and get something that I really want I end up eating a bunch of stuff around the house that I didn't want in the first place.
The other day on the way home from Hy Vee my BIL gave me half of a Scotcheroo. That was about 4 bites and I was surprisingly satisfied with it. Maybe what I need to do when I get something that I really want, like a chocolate fudge brownie from Perkins, is eat half of it and save the other half for another day. I do much better exercising portion control. If I get a box of Cheez It's Grooves I divide them into portions, put them in snack size zip lock bags and put them back in the box. Otherwise, if I sit down with the whole box I start mindlessly munching and before I know it the box is empty. For me it's all about portion control. I weigh and measure everything otherwise my eyes are always bigger then my belly.
