Healthy food substitutions are the key to successful weight loss. Determine what your food addictions are while developing your weight loss plan. If you’re addicted to triple chocolate ice cream, find a healthier alternative for it that still satisfies your cravings, like frozen Greek yogurt with whole fruit mixed in. Rather than trying to eat ice cream in moderation (because we all know that carton will be gone before we know it), indulge in a healthier food swap. You won’t feel deprived and you’ll be one step closer to your goal weight.
