I have done this many times and it works. Destroy the item of
temptation that causes you to binge or feel bad about after it is
over with. I bought a half of a gallon of ice cream and the other
was free. I finished off the first one within 24 hours. The second
one I watered it down into the sink.
Destroy temptation. If you've succumbed to a craving and bought
a box of cookies or some other trigger food and start to feel bad
while eating it, destroy it. "Don't just throw it away; run water
over it, ruin it. You'll feel a sense of accomplishment that you've
licked your binge." says Caroline Apovian, MD, director, Nutrition
and Weight Management Center at Boston Medical Center. Don't
think about the money you're wasting. If the cookies don't go into
the garbage, they're going straight to your hips. R.D.
