Ask the Trainer: Temptations and Weight Loss
Question: I really need and want to lose weight - but my biggest problem is giving into temptations. Any suggestions?
Answer: Temptations are a problem for all of us. When you have a food temptation and you consume more calories, it can be hard to lose weight. Here are a few things to try. First, make sure you are eating small meals throughout the day - every 3-4 hours. This will increase your metabolism and will make it so you are not as hungry when you tend to crave sweets. Another trick that works for some people is to simply not have tempting things around the house. If there is a bowl of candy out in the open, or a bag of chips in the pantry, it is easy to keep walking by and grabbing a few. Try to eliminate or limit the things you keep around until you break your bad habits. Best of luck with your goals!
