I have trouble with junk food, what can I do?

If you're having trouble with junk food, there are a few things you can do.

Cold Turkey
Just stop buying and eating it. Just say you can't eat it and don't.

Don't buy Junk Food
It's hard to resist the temptation when the food is sitting in front of you.

Put it out of sight
Put your junk food in a hard to get place so it's a pain to get it.

Only eat junk food if you're below the line
On the Excel Diet your weight will fluctuate above and below your goal. If you are below then allow yourself to eat it but don't go crazy.

Picture yourself eating it
You can use your imagination to make believe you're eating the food. See the food. Unwrap it. Smell its delicious flavor, shape and color. Put it to your tongue and chew it. This has worked for me. Even smelling the food can help. You won't gain any weight from smelling it.

Have substitutes
If you're going to a party or place where it's in your face it's good to have substitutes.
  • Eat the fruit salad
  • Carry protein bars with you
  • Eat cherry tomatoes
  • Eat healthier choices like nuts

    Think of it as big companies forcing you to eat Junk Food
    You can also think about how the big companies use their science to make you a junk food addict. From the color of the wrapper, to the smells, texture, flavor and constant bombardment of ads, they are trying to addict you to their unhealthy product. Use this knowledge to get angry at them that they can't manipulate you.

    Think of the money you'll save
    Junk food is usually higher priced than healthy foods so you can save some money by skipping it. If you buy a few candy bars a day at work for a dollar a pop. That's $750 a year out of your pocket. And if you include what you have to earn to have $750 it's close to $1,000 a year.

    Look in the mirror before you eat it
    Prior to eating junk, go to the mirror and take a look. Ask is this how I want to look? Realize the you're in control of your behavior. It may be a bad habit you've developed but ultimately you have take the unhealthy food and put it in your mouth.

    Think of it as Poison
    Junk food is poison. If you eat too much of it, it will kill you, just like poison only much slower.
