how not to cheat on your diet

Take out temptation: If you can’t seem to say no to junk food when it’s lurking in your cabinets, simply take it out of your house. Make your kitchen a safe space.

Don’t overdo what’s good for you: Overeating healthy foods defeats the purpose of keeping them on hand. Always keep portions in check — even with good-for-you foods.

plan ahead: There is room for indulgence on a healthy diet! When you have a special date on the horizon, eat clean for the days leading up to the event, and schedule a workout for the next day.
