What would you choose?

One of the things that can make losing weight so difficult is being faced by choice.  This becomes even more difficult when something looks like a bargain and is sugary and sweet.

Which would you choose the doughnut or the apple?

When you see that 2 doughnuts are only 35p and that a single apple is around 30p it is no wonder that people often opt for the cheaper option let only the fact that doughnuts are a typical comfort food.

Knowing that the apple is better for you is often not motivating enough to make the healthier choice so if this is you

  • try to limit buying a sugary item as a weekly treat and balance it with healthier options.
  • if you are buying for yourself don’t buy packs of two, try to find just one, as if you have two you will only eat them.
  • make sure if you have something as a treat you sit down and eat it consciously rather than on the run
  • finally remember you have had it!

This will help you to become more concious of  what you are eating and hopefully help you in eating more healthily.

One thought on “What would you choose?

  1. Apples come with so many health benefits. I don’t think it’s between choosing an apple or a donut (unless you try a no-sweets diet). I think it’s developing a taste for fruit so that you get to naturally choose the donut less and less. And apples (and pears) do taste great!
