The Craving Cheat Sheet

Can't give up that scoop of ice cream or occasional sweet, yet having it in the house is a recipe for a dieting disaster? Flipse recommends the below to curb your craving and slash your calorie intake:

  • 2-ounce portions of deli meat
  • Mini cheeses, like Mini Babybel cheese that comes in a single serving
  • 7.5-ounce Coke mini cans (90 calories each)
  • Peeled oranges or melons, stored in Ziploc bags for portion control

Another tip to keep on tap? Eat with a fork. "Most things we eat with our hands are not the healthiest options -- pigs in a blanket, cookies, candy. When you pick up a fork and sit down, you have time to think about what you're putting in your mouth," Carson says.

So the next time you're about to reach for that day-old slice, spend some time giving your fridge a little organization TLC and put a halt to a munching meltdown.

I also agree with sodonnel15 - WHY are you recommending Coke? That is some of the worst, most detrimental advice.

You should not be recommending unfermented soy products. A good article for anyone to check out regarding the dangers of unfermented soy:
