in the past 12 weeks or so, i have lost about 20 lbs. by eating low-carb and working out a lot.
now i am plateaued a bit at around 215, and i think my main problem is cheating with candy and snacks at work.
i have never seen an office with this much free junk food lying around.
when you walk in the door, there’s a big bowl of fun size candy bars, york peppermint patties, smarties, etc.
in the kitchen right now, there is:
–a box of a dozen donuts
–a pail filled with 20-30 king size candy bars
–a huge serving bowl filled with bags of snacks–fritos, cheetos, wheat thins, etc.
–another huge serving bowl filled with cookies, crackers, cupcakes, rice krispy treats
–a huge bowl of plain m&ms
–a huge bowl of peanut m&ms
there are also cabinets filled with more of the same, and the entire stash is refilled every single day.
now, i have my protein, and my chicken, and my other low-carb items in the fridge. and i don’t even have a huge sweet tooth.
but good grief, it’s really hard to keep from sampling from this cornucopia of sugary delights. some days, i make it without a single morsel. some days, i may just have one mint or a few m&ms.
somedays, i am starving and i go crazy in the afternoons.
any advice on how to stay strong and avoid this extreme temptation?
