Guilt-Free Junk Food

Do you find certain sweets or junk foods hard to resist? Avoiding them completely can increase cravings and trigger a binge-eating episode. It’s better to find a sensible way to incorporate small amounts of these foods into your healthy-eating plan.

For instance, baking cookies when you’re home alone probably isn’t a healthy decision. However, if you’re invited to a special celebration, plan to enjoy a small serving of dessert. When you do eat this special treat, savor it guilt-free.
