Those are good tips.

 

You can also eat a dill pickle. They have lots of sodium, but you burn more calories chewing and digesting than are actually in the pickle.

 

I've heard it is because the sweet and sour taste centers on your tongue are right next to each other. My grandma's doctor told her that when she was diagnosed with diabetes.

i am bad and give in to my cravings but on sort of a budget. Say I'm craving a bag of chips, i'll get rice chips with flavoring and eat only 1/2 a bag. lol sounds dumb i think, but that way i get to eat the flavoring (usually its what i crave anyways) and its 1/4 the cals

Good for you for starting your 'wedding diet' already! I'm getting married 11 days after you and I don't plan on starting my 'diet' until January....or February....or March :P

 

What are you craving? A pickle or 10 almonds is a good idea if you want something crunchy and salty, a square of dark chocolate is good if you want something sweet. I'm trying to cut back on the junk I eat, so I don't keep it in my house and I don't bring any to work with me. I treat myself to a yummy Starbucks treat on Fridays - a tall sugar free vanilla, non fat caramel macchiato - lower in calories, has protein and coffee is an appetite suppressant so I don't feel like eating after I've had one!

It takes 21 days to break a habit...so the first 21 days are the hardest! My cravings really did subside after a few weeks. I still do the small square of dark chocolate and such, I just watch the number of calories.

 

Good luck! You can do it! And remember...nothing tastes as good as being thin feels :)

I agree with brushing teeth. something stong like mentos can help or mouthwash if you don't have time to brush.

 

also finding a substitute. Like to break my chocolate bar addiction i started eating a bannana with sugar free hersheys squirted on it. so i get my chocolate fix, but I'm not so hooked on that now.

 

also, don't have the bad stuff in the house. have plenty of healthy options around too so you don't feel deprived.

I have a cheat day built into my diet. It helps me fight off the cravings during the week knowing I can get my sweet fix on Saturday. It makes my Sundays really hard though! The other thing I have found that works is make sure to eat lots of protien. It helps keep me from being so hungry and getting as many cravings. I find that when I get really hungry is when the cravings hit hard!

I drink a GIANT glass of water when I'm craving something. If I'm still craving something I'll go for a walk if possible or do some sit-ups/ push-ups. If I'm still craving it, I'll eat what I've been wanting. But only a small portion and I'll make sure the calories add into my day so I haven't over eaten at all.

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
