“I Don’t Eat That”


www.ironmanmagazine.comA day doesn’t go by that we’re not tantalized by some so-called treat, hell-bent on derailing our healthy-eating plan. Could defusing the temptation be as simple as four words: “I don’t eat that”?

According to the July/August ’12 Health, 80 percent of women who used those words stayed on track with their good eating habits.

That’s compared to 10 percent who used “I can’t....” The reason may be that “can’t” indicates you’re giving up something you are craving. “I don’t” gives you more of a sense of empowerment.

It’s one more trick to help you live the bodybuilding lifestyle.
