Are “Healthy” Foods Sabotaging Your Results?

Did you know that even “healthy” foods can be a problem for some people? There are certain foods-and it’s an individual thing-that once you start eating them, it’s very hard to stop.

For many, it’s pasta. Sure, you’ll cook the 100% whole wheat variety and sit down to a “healthy” meal, but unless you specifically portion out the amount your going to eat, you can easily end up downing half the box or more.

You see, if you’re not careful, “healthy” can easily turn into a massive calorie overload sent straight to your waistline.

These foods-those “Pringles” once-you-pop-you-can’t-stop foods-are what we refer to as “trigger foods” and if you’re going to consume them, you need to do so with a little bit of caution.

Here are just a couple trigger food tips:

1. Only consume trigger foods as an “individual” meal, not with the family. This allows you to cook (or reheat) an individual portion, and not be tempted by a huge serving bowl in front of you.

2. If you are cooking one of your trigger foods as a family meal, measure out a single portion and remove the serving bowl from the table. Tell your significant other “I’m not having seconds; hold me to it.” A little accountability goes a long way.

3. Never eat trigger foods directly from the box/bag/container. Always measure out a specific portion and then store the rest.

Put those 3 tips in place and you’ll avoid having a “healthy” food as the pitfall of getting great results.
