5-Step Plan for Cupcake Avoidance


I recently came across a humourous article from Glamour by Sarah Jio. She lists five ways to get over a cupcake craving. We have a similar problem. We both love cupcakes, but realize how bad they really are. Enjoy!

  1. Look at the frosting, now imagine all that ooey gooey creamy goop injected into your thighs or belly--because that's where it's going!
  2. Would you want to look like a cupcake? Didn't think so. One Vitamin G reader uses this trick: she avoids foods that she wouldn't want to look like (imagine a greasy pizza).
  3. As soon as you start craving a cupcake, eat a piece of fruit instead. Do it fast, before your brain convinces you that you need the cupcake. Wait 15 minutes and the craving will most likely fade.
  4. In a pinch, turn to a bran or carrot muffin instead--at least you'll be getting some healthy fiber and whole grains.
  5. Still want one? OK have one. But go to the bakery with a pal and make her promise that she won't let you have more than one.

Ok. So, let me ask you something...... You're walking by Sprinkles or Crumbs cupcake shop and you see mouthwatering cupcakes that you KNOW taste absolutely decadent.... you start to go inside but instead you pull out a banana and eat it.
Do you think that you will somehow NOT crave that cupcake anymore???
C'MON!!!!!
