No marshmallows *p*

current mood: loved
current song: Buck Cherry Crazy Bitch

Let me back up a sec and explain why this is so painful. For the past few weeks the new rule implemented is that i have to have permission for any snack. No way around it. Even the nachos that come in the Taco bell meal to the mint that was sitting in my truck.  I'm a snacker, i'd rather skip all my meals and snack throught the whole day. My favorite food is marshmallows Peeps in particular. To me their a food group all unto themselves. Yesterday Daddy threw out all the snacks and candy. ALL of it. When He got to the baking cupboard and pulled out the two bags of marshmallows the downright begging began. I asked Him to keep one of the bags just for the Little Prince. I had promised i wouldn't touch a one. So he did. This morning i gave the whole bag to L'Prince on his way out to school. He was so happy he bounced all the way out the freaking door. I just didn't want to have them in the house to have to look at truth be told. 

So here's the problem. Since i don't like having to ask for snacks i don't do it as much as i'd like to. So come meal times i'm starting to load up and that is not good with my tummy issues i have since it's pains me literally to eat too much at a sitting . I need to find the happy medium real soon. maybe get healthier snacks i can get pre-approved by Daddy for the day or something to be able to eat throughout the day? I don't know.

Snacking is actually healthier then eating three big meals... you are better off eating 6 small meals 2-3 hours apart. Seriously, I have been studying, reading and doing this in practice, I have lost 2.5 stones (35lbs) doing this. Obviously you need to make healthy choices, but I have one naughty day a week where I can have what I want.

You both have your own understanding, dynamic and it works for you. I can't imagine someone telling me I couldn't have a bloody mint, sorry... no bloody way!

I absolutely agree with the method. I learned that so long ago with weight watchers. I had lost a lot of weight. I just was not making the correct choices being on the run all the time recently. I need to get back to that. Do you have the whole day naughty or just 1 selection for the day ?

Yes, this rule is a huge struggle surprisingly enough to me.

The whole day is a free day... I don't usually go crazy and gorge, but I will have say a nice dolce cinnamon latte from starbucks with a piece of carrot cake, and maybe for dinner we might get chinese take out, which over here is mostly steamed veg/rice/meat. I will eat loads of raw fruit and veg remainder of day.

The harder I work more results I see better I eat, even on my off days.

I sometimes have a wee bit of chocolate as well.

The key for me is no dairy, or wheat, and no sugar, as in I do not add sugar to anything, only sugar I get is from fruit or if it is already in something processed, but try to cook with natural ingredients when I can, sometimes I get too busy. I use agave for my sugar substitute, it is natural and low gi index.

i second the part about small meals and snacks being better than fewer, larger meals. i have noticed that keeping snacks ( popcorn, peanuts, 100 cal packs of sun chips) at my desk means that I eat less when I get home at the end of the day - it is especially good for speeding up your metabolism ( my big problem cuz of the broked thyroid)

Ooo that's rough! Pre-approved healthy snacks are a good idea, though! You can also try some that "aren't too bad for you" like Rice Krispie Treats, those have marshmellows *and* rice, win-win, or cookies that have oats and such in them. Or delicious fruity breads. Banana bread = YUM and zucinni bread isn't bad either! Good luck whatever you do!!!

Those are all delicious, but rife with too much sugar and fat - everything scrummy is, right?

Yes that's true. For me refined sugar is the worst. That's what i try and avoid. I can't avoid dairy. I dink milk all the time. Several glasses a day.

I don't drink cows milk and rarely have cow dairy products, I have done too much reading, negative stuff about consuming it, so I don't - that and it is quite fattening. But life is to short, have to enjoy something.
