Why “Just One Bite” Doesn’t Work for Me


June 10, 2012 by Beth Hess

I like to imagine the foods that tempt me really taste pretty awful. I imagine them dry or soggy or bland or too salty…

One bite might prove me wrong — and that’s harder to recover from than just passing on it in the first place.

  1. Great tips! Thank you for sharing. I have to remember to keep gum with me more often.


  2. I definitely look at the calorie count and think “there’s no way that cookie is good enough to eat for that amount of calories”. Or I think about how I’d rather use those calories on something I KNOW is good- like homemade cookies or extra helpings of dinner. One thing that really helps me a lot is chewing gum. I think a lot of times I just want that satisfaction of chewing something, so gum helps. But really, I give in a lot and have just a small bite of that tempting food- it’s worth it and need sometimes!
