feed the craving

Posted on

Though I still love to eat (sometimes a lot), I can definitely tell I’ve changed since trying to become healthier when it comes to my eating habits.  Case in point?  I once lovvvvved Snickers bars.  I still like the minis when I can get my hands on them, but even then I try to show restraint.  For the most part these days, I don’t really eat them.

As you can see, they have around 300 calories and close to 14 grams of fat.  But the funny thing is, while I won’t shove one of these into my mouth, I will make time for Lara.

Just based on calories and fat alone, it’s not much different.

But take a closer look at the Snickers bar.

Uhhhhh, no thanks.  Here’s the ingredients list for a Larabar:

Yes, please.  That’s more like it.

How has your diet changed if/since you’ve made a conscious decision to eat healthier?  Do you check out ingredient lists on food items?

  1. I’ve been trying to eat better. The weird thing is, my body has been craving healthier stuff. It’s like my body almost rejects the yummy bad stuff. But that doesn’t meet I won’t force feed it every now and again 🙂 My main problem is that I still struggle with what is healthy, and what is bad for you. I will eat something that I think isn’t so bad, and then find out it’s one of the most horrible things I could have put in my mouth! I’m still learning what all of the big words mean 🙂

    But YOU look fabulous, and have definitely been an inspiration for me to be more health conscious. Keep up the great work!
