i do it too
I feel like I think about food more than the average person. Lately, I've been trying to change those thoughts into something more positive. Like instead of just thinking about a fatty meal I would love (like a #6 from Wendy's) I try to think about the next healthy, low-cal meal I'm going to have. Or I'll think about what healthier foods I'm going to get at the grocery store next time. It seems to be working for me. I haven't had fast food or junk food in a while, I'm eating more veggies now than I ever had.
Thanks to the PPs who suggested those books. I'm definitely going to check them out!
