    Well today is Day 7 and I am surprised i made it one week. I experienced a talkative tummy...mood swings ...low or no patience. Definite cravings lethargy and headaches. I feel like I'm surrounded by everything I want.  I haven't eaten this healthy since i was pregnant with my daughter 13 years ago.  28 more days and i will feel like Rocky Balboa when he won a fight!!!

    If you're a total snack monster right now, mini template meals are the way to go.
    What's a mini meal? It's where your ratios are just like a template meal, only your portion is snack sized.
    If you're really struggling, I'd avoid fruit in your mini meals, stick to protein, fat and veggies

    If you follow the meal template AND make sure your meals are large enough, you won't need to snack as you will be able to go at least 4 hours between meals. 
    If you are genuinely hungry between meals, eats mini meal of protein and fat-and/or veggies. 
    Not snacking is the best way to diminish sugar cravings. Making sure you have your fats at each meal is also essential. As @C_Cezeaux notes, fat has a way of short circuiting the desire for sugar.

    Part of this program is to get that snack habit and sugar craving STOPPED.  It is a battle with the sugar dragon for sure, but worth it.  Ideally, the answer is NOTHING, when it comes to what you eat for afternoon snack.  It sounds odd, but I read a tip from someone else that actually works for me to stop that sugar crave - a taste of organic coconut oil. If I had so measure, I'd say I put about a third of a regular spoon of coconut oil in my mouth when I tried it. Distraction is also a major help.  Get up, go do something to take your mind off your craving.

    I just today spent a few minutes creating snack baggies to keep in my car and work tote.  I weighed out 1oz of almonds and put them in ziplocs.  Almonds have saved my fanny a bunch of times.

    I have read It Starts With Food and the Whole 30. I planned on starting in the spring and that didn't happen. After my yearly dr app I realized I really need to take control on my health. I have gained weight and I feel terrible. I am tired and sluggish every day. I sit at a desk all day and find myself mindlessly eating "snacks" all day. I am eating way too much processed food because I am too lazy to cook after my work day. The drive thru after a long day is much easier than cooking a meal.  I am starting now with my meal planning now so I can hopefully break that habit. I am trying to get my husband to start with me too. But even if he won't I will still starting on the 2nd.
