Healthy Habit: Saying 'no' To Treats


The sabotage effect

Banning favourite foods is too restrictive, it's human nature to want the things you can't have, so when you cut out chocolate or wine you'll find it difficult to ignore cravings. It's only a matter of time until you crack, and when you do, you're likely to binge on the very thing you were trying to cut out.


Make it healthier

Don't make treats your enemy - nothing should be banned. Just try to have everything in moderation. Rather than vowing never to eat a Dairy Milk ever again, you need to focus your energy on strengthening your willpower when there's chocolate around. Commit to limiting yourself to one bar a week and you'll be more likely to stick to it in the long term.


Clever swap: Don't buy a large bar of chocolate with the intention of saving half for later. Instead, pick up a fun size portion so it's harder to 'accidentally' eat more.
