How to Eat Less Junk Food

How I trained myself to eat less junk food.

Thought of the Day 

Key idea: training yourself to associate how you FEEL 10-15 minutes after you eat the food instead of associating the food with those feelings of instant gratification when you first take a bite.

Now, I’m not saying I don’t eat junk food nor do I hate junk food. But my cravings and desire to eat them often has decreased significantly.

Last week, we found a Groupon for 21 days of unlimited classes for $17. That’s a pretty amazing deal considering the price of the monthly membership. Sure, why not. We decided to buy it.

When we got there, the first thing I noticed was the loud, high energy, clubbing-type music. Lots of sweaty people around the gym were lifting weights, then shuffling between workouts each time the 50-second buzzer went off.

I found where the Irvine masochists hang out.

 

It felt like going clubbing, but without the dancing or fun. It was similar to when we went to Soul Cycle a couple weeks back.
