How many times have you said to yourself "I'll start tomorrow" or "this is the last one" or "just one more." I have done this more times than I can count! Americans are focused on finding the right diet instead of focusing on changing the way we do things. Here are a few quick tips to help you get started, stay motivated and keep on track... for life.

Things You’ll Need:

Don't set yourself up. Analyze the ways in which you manage your time and your life. Get active, and don't forget some down time for yourself.
Never starve yourself. Don't skip breakfast. eat something small if you usually eat at this time. Try eating smaller more frequent meals.
Enjoy eating( eliminate distractions, eat at table instead of in front of the tv
Strip Trigger foods of their power( if you know it's not good for you don't buy it for the house. Out of sight is out of mind
Promise yourself regular tune ups, focus on yourself, do whatever makes you feel good, make sure it isn't food though. (get your nails done, go dancing)
Don't eat around cravings. If you find it unbearable go ahead, but indulge sensibly and set limits
When you feel like your about chow down on that chocolate cake use the five D's rule. 1.Determine what's going on. 2. Delay your response.3.Distract yourself for 10 mins. 4. Distance yourself from temptation. 5. Decide how you'll handle the situation.
Stop and take stock, after a binge we tend to feel guilty , write down how you feel and what you think lead you to binge. This way when the urge hits again you can see how you felt the last time you gave.
