    I'm succumbing to the holiday diet.

    I've been at a relative's house since Sunday. I started out well but after three days I realized they didn't have much variety in healthy alternatives. I've just finished two slices of cake. And I had two bags of chips early (in addition to healthier stuff but still).

    I'm gonna try having fun with the healthier stuff but I seriously hate just eating, apples. wheatbread, lettuce, and some other bland crap.

    What are some healthy alternatives you think could be found in anyone's pantry/refrigerator?


    Oh yeah, and there's a relative in every room so I also can't masturbate (the shower is a big turnoff to me) so I'm unhealthy with a case of blueballs.

    ....well first off..turn on the shower but masterbate in the bathroom...don't have to be in the shower to jack off...

    secondly...look for trailmix...nuts ....a handful of those a day is very healthy especially almonds - but go for anything you enjoy...mix that with some yogurt perhaps for a healthy snack or eat them with some dried fruit...or fresh fruit.

    ...something as simple as a peanut butter and jelly sandwich can be much healthier and curbs the sweet tooth a bit, too.

    Hope that helps!

    I'm a junk food junky.

    I've found many ways to make healthy food more interesting. For raw vegetables various varieties of salsa whether home made or store bought do the trick. Also with breads and vegetables you can dip it into extra virgin olive oil, or make an olive oil based dip. Peanut butter is good with bananas, and apples as well if you can eat it in moderation. With apples I'll sprinkle some ground cinnamon on them. I also make a fruit dip using Greek yogurt (when I'm feeling rich, regular yogurt or cottage cheese otherwise), organic honey, cinnamon and raisins. I really it like it with cantelope, honeydue, and other types of melons as well as apples. Hummus is also a good, healthy dipping option. If I'm in a situation where there's junk food vs. healthy food, I'll make myself eat the healthier options first. Usually that takes care of it because real food fills you up, food made with chemicals and additives leave you wanting more no matter how full you feel.

    Or you can splurge and keep in perspective that a couple of days of eating what you want are not going to make any significant difference in your body composition.

    common healthy foods you might look for in the cabinets:

    canned tuna
    peanut butter
    fruits and veggies (raw)
    lean deli meats
    apple sauce
    yogurt
    cottage cheese
    nuts (better if not coated in honey and other flavorings)
    raisins


    happy hunting!

    CitizenSol,


    -I absolutely LOVE my big green apples. They're cruntchy, tangy, and fill me up when I'm craving something really sweet. I have a really bad sweet tooth.

    -also keep lowfat yogurt in different flavors stashed away in my fridge.

    -Carrots and dip.

    -Trident Tropical Twist Gum (the one thats good for you teeth) cuz it eliminates the need to put something in your mouth...heheheh.icon_eek.gif.

    -grapes are a good way to fool your mind into thinking your eating a lot.

    -Finally, those strawberry frosted mini wheats are pretty good for snacking on.

    I usually switch up the snack between the days so it doesn't get so mundane.

    That's how I've been rationalizing away all the snacks I've been eating, lol.

    As long as you work out everyday, like myself, you shouldn't be able to do too much damage. Also, working out can help to curb your appetite.
