Hey guys...  So this might be an obvious one for some people but I had to learn this the hard way.  Growing up I had candy and treats everywhere!  We even had a treat drawer that was fully stocked at all times.  My mom also happens to make THE MOST DELISH baked goods known to man, so as you can imagine I was a little "round" growing up.  Well, as I get older, I know that I cant have that kind of stuff all the time, and I definately cant have it in my house.

So heres the rules:  You dont buy food you cant control yourself around.  Simple right.  Not everything I buy is great for me, but I have self control around those things, so I dont have to leave them out.  ie. corn chips and dried cranberries

             I pretty much never have "candy" at my house, and when I say candy I mean gummy, chewy, candy coated goodness.  I buy as much greens as I can and fill my fridge with lots of fruits and veggies.  My cupboards are also pretty free from sugar filled snacks.

How do I combat that sugar cravings??  Well I keep dark chocolate, dark chocolate covered nuts and thinks of that sort.  I am far from perfect, and when I want to splurge, I go out and buy it.  Then I dont have the temptation around.

Also, I want to say that not only is it better for you, but its also better for your kids, and dogs. :)  They dont need that crap either... and after a little bit you wont crave it anymore, in fact, youll feel pretty sick after you eat a whole box of Hot Tamales or whatever you love.  Hope this helps some of you!!

See... Jackie is so much happier not eating human treats too!! :)                  ---------------------------->
P.S. Sugar makes you look and feel old... and dark chocolate and nuts are actually good for you!!
Love you guys, and I only say all this cause I want you to be healthy and feel good!!
