31 Days of Weight Loss Tips: Day 12 Prevent Impulsive Junk Purchases

Ever been out and your stomach starts howling and you become lured by the ever-present fast food restaurants that line most streets? Or maybe you're sitting at your desk and the image of the office vending machine keeps flashing in your head? Prevent making a bad decision by always having a healthy snack on hand.

Whenever you leave the house, make sure you have some easily accessible snacks available. I always make sure I have some raw almonds or a piece of fruit stashed in my purse for those instances when I'm out longer than expected and I find myself starving.

Some examples of healthy snacks that travel well are: bananas, apples, pears, plums, peaches, nectarines and bags of strawberries, blueberries, grapes, almonds, pecans, walnuts, sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds.

If you plan properly, you put yourself in a better position to succeed in your weight loss pursuit.

Note: I no longer recommend store bought protein bars or any variation of health bars. Many are high in sugar and fat which makes them really comparable to candy bars. Furthermore, because they are a packaged good, they will almost always contain some type of preservative (a non-food substance). Foods that have non-food substances should be avoided.
