I quit eating popcorn throughout my weight loss efforts.
At first this helped, but before long always withholding these items from myself was having a deleterious effect on my goal.
I had to find a better balance between overeating and not having several meals a afternoon and nothing else. I have learn that several people are successful when they incorporate healthier eating habits within a reasonable framework instead of attempting a starvation diet. Of the people who start strict diets, the amount who relapse into their aged eating habits is well over 50%. Most people fail when they try to force themselves into an severely strict diet that prevents them from having any treats of any kind. Thankfully I managed to find a nutrition program that basically made me focused on calorie counts. I could eat whatever I wanted as long as I kept my calories within a particular threshold. This is how I managed to lose weight after years of trying to no avail. I’ll even buy popcorn and put them in a special drawer, however I have to be careful when I’m smoking the cannabis I get from the medical marijuana dispensary. It’s potent and the high THC gives me the munchies. If I’m not careful, too much marijuana will cause me to eat a bunch of my popcorn. Not only does this mess with my calorie count for the afternoon but it’s also lavish. I don’t know I should be eating popcorn in this manner when they already cost an arm and a leg to purchase in the first site. They need to last a month, not a few afternoons.
