Have you ever noticed how when you start eating carby snacks you can’t stop? Betcha can’t eat just one…
Same with fatty treats. Given the chance, I think I could easily eat my own body weight in chocolate.
Protein is different. No matter how I try, I can’t eat too much chicken, or beef, or eggs. It fills me up.
More critically, I’ve noticed the best way to stop the binges, when things look like they’re about to spiral out of control, is to eat protein.
Protein stops a binge dead in its tracks.
Doesn’t matter if it’s a protein bar, or a piece of meat, or some pre-cooked chicken breast. It stops the binge. It kills the cravings and crazy eating.
Give it a try, next time you’re about to work your way through a family sized bag of cookies. Pause, and eat a protein bar instead.
It works. And you won’t need the cookie.
