Quick Tip: Get the Junk Food Out

quick tip
Here's a quick weight loss tip that's helpful to almost anyone: Get the junk food out of your house!

Many people think they'll use "willpower" and only eat that stuff in moderation and occasionally. What really happens (as it happened to me) is you end up binge eating it.

Of course, this sabotages all your hard work. You've been dieting and exercising... now you've just busted your diet with a bunch of sugary and/or fattening garbage.

My point is, why even subject yourself to temptation? Get rid of the bad food so you don't have to see it all the time.

Simple Trick to Stop Night-Time Eating

night time eating
Are you a late-night snacker? I'm sure you've heard this leads to weight gain and other health issues, but how to stop?

Well, I had the same problem for a long time. I'd get up at 2 am for a bowl of ice cream night after night. And I felt guilty every time, because I was after all trying to lose weight.

But then I thought of a super-simple way to break the automatic behavior that happened in the middle of the night when I was half-asleep. Leave a message to my night-time self!

And it totally worked. I don't have a problem with midnight snacking anymore. I've given it up thanks to this simple trick.

Avoiding Temptation Beats Willpower

Willpower is wonderful, but most of us cave to temptation when the chocolate cake comes out. Strengthen your willpower, if you must. But in the meantime, take action now and REMOVE TEMPTATION.

A study published in the journal Neuron last month found that precommittment beats out willpower. In other words, if you want to avoid a certain behavior, you'll succeed best not through strength of will but by not even seeing the object of temptation.

Researcher Molly Crockett sums it up clearly:

The most effective way to beat temptations is to avoid facing them in the first place.

The lesson of this research: Don't fool yourself into thinking you can bring home junk food and then not eat it (or only eat small portions). Maybe you can, maybe you can't. Instead, a powerful way to beat cravings is to get bad foods out of the house. Even if that means throwing it all in the trash.

Before that box of donuts ever darkens your door, resolve not to buy it in the first place. If you really want to lose weight, clean out all the sugary, fattening, and salty junk from your pantry and refrigerator. And don't purchase any more.

Don't try to find "something healthy" on the menus of fast food restaurants. If possible, simply stay out of such places. "Out of sight, out of mind," as the saying goes.

Prove you're serious about losing weight. Not by constantly testing your willpower. But by avoiding temptation.
