Get Your ‘Got No Will Power’ Food Strategy Happening!
It’s not kind to your body or mind to be relying on sheer ‘Will Power’, to stop scoffing down foods that are going straight to your thighs!

You need to have a Will-Power Food Strategy. If you’ve a strategy – you won’t have to rely on sheer Will Power to get you through the day.
A Couple Of My ‘Got No Will Power’ Strategies………
If I’m going out with a friend for dinner………I often make a decision before I go.……..I can have wine or sweets – but I can’t have both.
This strategy works for me, as I never feel great when I’ve knocked back both. I feel bloated and I always feel better the next day when I’ve only had one or the other. So I still get to treat myself by choosing one,
……..and to be honest – the wine option always wins for me!
I LOVE cashew butter…..….it’s very hard for me to resist. Give me a jar and a spoon and my Will Power is pushed to the limits!
There’s nothing wrong with cashew butter – it’s a healthy fat in moderation. But I am NOT moderate with it. So my strategy is to buy a jar once in a while and enjoy it – but not buy it weekly.
What Tests Your Will Power?
Think about it, write them down and plan a will-power strategy for each.
Life can be challenging enough without having to beat yourself up, over making the wrong food choices.
Never totally deny yourself something though……….just put the strategies in place so that when you want to indulge – it becomes a yummy treat for you.
