Cheese, chocolate and chips are all trigger foods, to use a Weight Watchers expression. I eat a piece and continue until they are all gone. Although grated cheese is more expensive to buy, if I have a block of cheese I will carve out chunks and so I opt for the grated kind. Chips I have to stay away from but chocolate has some healthy qualities. Dark chocolate contains antioxidants and has been known to lower blood pressure. Half an ounce daily, with a content of 70% cocoa, can be good for you, but who can eat only an ounce of chocolate?
Last week-end I snacked far too much and didn't keep up with my journal. Today, I did much better. I started the day off with plain yogurt and blueberries, ate a carrot at mid-day then had salad with some grated cheese for lunch. This afternoon I munched on a fiber plus bar and for dinner scrambled eggs with a slice of toast. I'm well within my 1,200 calories and I also did 30 minutes of the Boot Camp DVD and 30 minutes elliptical.
