I have friends who go on "diets", then they talk about how tempted they are to have pie or cake or pizza or beer or whatever, so I tell them, go on, and have it, only dont eat the whole pie, dont eat the whole box of ice cream and dont drink the whole case of beer.
the craving we think we are having for a food, is really only our minds trying to trick us.
we just have to play along, and give into the craving, but keep in mind, once you have had a bite or two, or one beer, usually, for most people, you have satisified that need.
its no different than a smoker who is using the patches or the ecigs to quit smoking.
they are still getting what they need, until eventually they dont need it anymore.
same with food, if you just have to have a candy bar, have one of the small ones and eat it in slow, small bites, trick your mind into thinking you have eaten the whole bar.
