Eat– for Good Health

We’re having BEEF AND BROCCOLI STIR-FRY TONIGHT. Planning a nutritious dinner (and then of course making it, ha, ha) prevents haphazard snacking.  The “what the heck” scenario derails our efforts to slim down or stay that way.  Here’s an example of a setback.  Eat a cookie, think “what the heck” and eat more!  Of course we know we are supposed to forgive ourselves and get right back on track.  Why is it that most people say, “what the heck, I’ll just start tomorrow?”  Planning ahead sets us up for success.  Read GOLD STANDARD OF THIN for free on Amazon!
