Meet my Mr Sneeks. He's the embodiment of my binge monster. He is the one that talks me into eating foods I know will lead me down a path that will cause me to struggle. Mr Sneeks gets stronger when I get sick, tired or stressed. He knows how to make me think that low carb bread (or other product) is a good option when I am sick and wanting comfort, he wouldn't dare mention it when I am healthy and strong and determined to make my goal. He will try to convince me that one slice (maybe even two, since it is labeled as low carb) won't hurt a bit, but he soon lives up to his name. Mr Sneeks will eventually convince me how one more slice will hardly matter.....then another.....and another.....
Crazy, I know, but once I named my binge monster (the voice in my head that encourages me to eat) I started learning his cues, excuses and lies. I am not saying there is anything wrong with incorporating low carb bread into your plan, but is it really the best time to mess with a food that may be difficult to limit?
When I am sick, a good hot meat broth with a dash of heavy cream really, I mean REALLY satisfies me.
