Pizza or burger?
We all have our favourite food that we cannot give away. No matter which diet you are doing, this food as to be part of it. My favourite take away is sushi and unfortunately it is not calorie-free as any food. When I am in front of sushis, I don’t have any limits anymore. I am still lucky because this one has not that many calories. For most people the common favourite fast food is burger or pizza. Your advantage is you can make it yourself.
From home, take away or restaurant?
Even if now many restaurants or take away are offering a low-calorie version of their products, you still have no control on what is in it and not that many choices. In opposite, when you do it yourself, you have full control and you can be sure on the amount of calorie. A lot of people will then argue that it is time-consuming and it is true for some recipe but not always (look here for an easy recipe of my low calorie pizza-pita). Anyway going to restaurant is also time consuming. It is fully depending on your love of cooking. Keep in mind that the food prepared by yourself will be always healthier as you will chose what is in your dish.
How often and in which quantity?
We have seen before that you can try the healthier version. If you cannot because you do not like it (happen often to me) or the restaurant does not offer it, it is always possible to stay on an healthy path. If the pizza you are eating is 800kcal, you can choose to have only half of it, or if you cannot stop yourself (like me) instead of having it every week try only once per month or every 2 weeks.
What impact on my mood?
Having the possibility to be able to consume anything you want in a healthy version or in a limited way will remove the frustration link with any diet. The problem with the suppression of food is that your brain does not understand the negative. If you think all the time: “I should NOT have chocolate”, your brain will receive the message as: “I SHOULD have chocolate”, that is where the frustration is starting. Allowing yourself to have chocolate will give your brain the message: “I can have a small piece of chocolate” and it is no conflict anymore.
