The best way to avoid foods you can’t eat whilst at home is to remove them from your line of sight. Have a chat with your housemates or partner and ask if they can keep their unhealthy pantry food towards to the back, on the bottom shelf or in their room. As for their cold foods, rearrange the fridge so that your foods are on the top two shelves and the unhealthy food is hidden in the bottom draw. Your roommates and/or partner shouldn’t mind altering the kitchen for the few weeks your undergoing the Thinco program.
One of the main reasons people overeat or eat unnecessarily is because they are bored. You know the feeling… you’ve been sitting at home all day, there isn’t much to do so you begin going back and forth from the kitchen, munching on snacks to cure your boredom. Instead, keep busy! Clean the house, go for a walk, pick up a hobby or play with the kids! Keeping your mind occupied on other things will make you forget about the unhealthy foods in your kitchen.
Remember to Eat
Sometimes when we are busy we can forget to eat regularly throughout the day and by doing so you put yourself more at risk for breaking your diet. Although the Thinco phase two approved foods list may be slightly smaller than what you are used to, make sure you are eating your required foods at appropriate times throughout the day to avoid getting so hungry you break your diet out of convenience.
