If you have a hard time having “just one” of something, your best bet may be to avoid sweets all together. This requires environmental and mental preparation.
· Don’t keep sweets in the house. Family members will have to go out for their treats.
· Get cooperation from your family and co-workers.
· Remove yourself physically from where the food is available – don’t walk past the vending machine, drive past your favorite ice cream shop, or stand by the buffet.
· Mentally: don’t even entertain the thought of eating _____. In your mind, it cannot even be a possibility!
