Unfortunately thre is no magic pill. I so wish there was.

The thing that I have found works best for me is planning. I plan my meals and snacks for the week on Sunday evenings. Yeah, I vary sometimes but mostly once it's planned, I find it much easier to not be tempted.

I also ... and most people here have heard this as my mantra before ... I quit thinking of going to the gym and eating healthily as an option. It's not an option. It just is. Like paying my bills, brushing my teeth, getting up in the morning and going to work. I don't have to like it or even want to do it. I just do it.

For me, taking the element of "should I" out of it has really helped.
