I dont know if theres a post about this kinda thing here, but here go’s anyways.
Im not following someone elses diet right now, im just doin my own thing. Fairly simple and broish. Now most of us have problems with certain parts of our diet - snacks, desserts, even getting enough water in - and i was curious what others do to deal with that.
Here are some of mine…snacks can be a real problem for me. Main meals i am good on for the most part. So for snacks, one thing we do is we keep turkey pepperoni (from costco) around. Another that we just recently did is we bought a box of quest bars from costco. Not only is it great for work at coffee break, but it helps when i want snacks. There are some others that i have done but i wont list those right now.
Dessert…i grew up in farm country, and one thing that my Grandpa was particular about was having dessert at the end of the day. Unfortuantly for both my Dad and me, thats something thats still influencing us. So…instead of cake or ice cream every night, i like to keep low cal popsicles around. Only 20-40 cals depending on what ones you buy so its not going to impact me that much.
Finally another hack i use to get more water in, not drink pop or booze and just have something different, is carbonated water. We buy bubly (costco again) but most of them will do.
