You’re Disciplined All Day, then Let Loose at Night
You’re the Jekyll and Hyde of snacking—restricting kilojoules so much by day that you’re ravenous by night. After dinner, you trek back and forth to the fridge, and before you know it, you’ve snuggled into the couch with a tub of ice-cream and a ladle.
Fix it!Start with a really satisfying breakfast: enjoy oats, muesli, eggs or low-fat Greek yoghurt. Then at lunch, combine healthy carbs, protein and fat. And take the time to truly savour your treats. Dr Dean Ornish, author of The Spectrum ($25.95; Ballantine Books), does a ‘chocolate meditation’. Take a single piece of the best chocolate you can find and let it slowly melt in your mouth, paying close attention to the complex flavours. It’ll give you more pleasure with fewer kilojoules.
