How to splurge, and not gain weight!

Posted on: May 2, 2009

Cookies, brownies, cakes,ice cream, chocolate muffins (yum!), they all scream “hope your not thinking about

Tak away 3 of these cookies and you have a calcium rich meal.

getting into your skinny jeans tomorrow!” but can you eat them and not gain weight? I say yes. If you want to eat a muffin at about, 3:00, don’t. Save it for dessert, that way you wont and up having a double serving of waist line expanding muffins. My second tip is make rewards. If you want to have a bowl of ice cream, go to the gym first. Make goals like, every 30 minutes on a tread mill (at a least 5 miles an hour) equals another scoop of ice cream(using a small scooper). Also make sure you have the right size portion. You can have a chocolate chip cookie as long as it isn’t the size of your head(admit it we’ve all been there). Another good thing to do is that if you are making something like muffins, cupcakes, or cookies then try to stretch the batter. So if you made a batter that was supposed to make 9 muffins make 12 instead. Follow these tips and you’ll be skinny jean worthy faster then you can say, “chocolate muffin!”

Hi there! First of all, thanks for commenting on my blog.

I do like this tip, although I would caution that some people may want to avoid looking at food as a reward because that will make them crave it every time they do something good. Which can get a bit sketchy 😛

My rule is to try and only eat candies and cookies after meals. That way I won’t snarf them down out of sheer starvation 🙂

Hi! Thanks for commenting too! And your right the whole food as a reward may get sketchy so I suggest that you should only use it at first so you don’t feel deprived of your favorite sweets. And thanks for the tip, all though when I eat cookies (which is frequently!) it is because I want to, not that I’m hungry. 🙂
