How do you avoid temptations?
I will be assisting with a fund raiser this weekend and will be baking many, many cakes---one of which is my favorite--- coconut!!! How can I avoid licking those beaters (not really) or the bowl???? I've gotta be strong bc there are sooooo may extra calories when you do things like that!

Fill Up First
I fill up on good calories before hand so I'm not hungry when making "treats".

Try keeping a healthy snack near by

In WW program, they call these Bites, Licks, and Tastes. They suggest to set up some sort of calorie association with these. For instance, apply a calorie count of 50 calories for say, 3 BLT's. This way you can keep track, and you know they add calories even if the calories are hard to calculate. Its all a matter of keeping up with what you actually put in your face! good luck! :)

Good way to think of it---every BLT = 50 calories!!!! Thanks bunches... I will even try this at the soup kitchen where I work one day a week bc they always have things where I can get my hands on them.
