It happens to the best of us. We get in an unhealthy eating rut. For me, it usually starts with a VERY large bag of tortilla chips. Or a VERY dark piece of chocolate.
Before I know it, I'm eating too much, too often.
The only thing that works for me is stopping cold turkey. Yes, I do allow myself to indulge in the things I enjoy. I pride myself on *usually* being able to keep it in check. But when I can't/don't/won't, the best way to get out of the rut is to avoid the offender completely.
As painful as it is, I stay away from tortillas or dark chocolate for a full week. When the week is up, I find I can go back to it in moderation.
That's my strategy! What's yours?
