If I had a chocolate Hail Merrie macaroon for every time a woman tells me she needs more willpower, well let's just say, I'd be a pretty happy girl.
I'm not big on relying on willpower. In fact it's a surefire way to NOT be successful at eating healthier.
Often when you decide to eat healthier, you think you have to rely on willpower. Needing to use a lot of willpower to 'not eat'. It usually ends up leaving you exhausted and obsessed with food, which means by about 9 p.m., if not sooner, you find yourself elbow-deep into a bag of chips or a carton of ice cream or scarfing down the package of cookies. Then, soon after, you're shaming yourself for failing - again - or you decide to ignore the binge - again - and start over tomorrow.
