Forbidding certain foods is a common weight-loss strategy, but studies have shown that this can actually lead to overeating.

Restricted dieters often satiate cravings for their forbidden food by eating other high-calorie items, which can lead to weight gain.

Learning how to effectively cope with trigger foods will leave you feeling in control and improves your chances of maintaining healthy eating habits.

Instead of fearing your favorite foods, figure out how to budget a small portion into your week.
Simply removing the “forbidden” label from a food can greatly reduce cravings for it!
