I came back from a week 's visit to family and the beach. While I was there, I eased up on my usual eating habits and ate things I usually don't(over did it) Not surprising,I gain a few lbs and now find I am still eating like I'm on vacation...I've been back 5 days! How do i break this cycle?
You could try keeping a food journal for a week. Just write down everything you eat along with the calorie counts. I actually did this when I went to go see a dietician for some gastrointestinal issues (I also include fiber, protein, and fat content in my journal) and you definitely get a good idea of what you're ingesting. Also, it gets kind of annoying to have to write down everything you eat so it may actually deter you from grabbing that extra snack.
yeah,I know about writing down food and counting calories. i was referring to the vacation mindset of eating 'off limits" food after the vacation. It was fun while it lasted but I'm getting back slowly to my boring healthy food habits..
