Tip #14 – “Cleanse Your Palette” After Eating “Junk Food”
So here’s the situation–you’ve eaten a bunch of potato chips or a candy bar and now you want more. Your tastebuds are still craving that salt or chocolate. Try this–instead of eating more, “cleanse your palette” with something healthy and/or “refreshing.” I’ve tried this several times and it seems to work. I’ve found that if that salty/chocolate taste lingers, I want more but if I eat an apple/carrot/celery afterwards, I’m good to go!
This is like getting the best of both worlds—you fulfill that craving you have but you don’t over-indulge and pack on the pounds!
