You have decided to start a diet and naturally you don't want to give into temptation and end up gorging on "forbidden" foods. So... clean up your cupboards and remove all high calorific foods such as soft drinks, sweets, crisps, peanuts and chocolate bars. If you have children, save them a special cupboard and tell yourself psychologically that this "hiding place" is forbidden! It's just for the kids! Obviously, it's not about banishing all these little pleasures from your life forever. You can allow yourself some small excesses from time to time and in moderation. Also, there are a multitude of possibilities to have fun with healthy products. Pomegranate seeds, for example, are very popular and are a great way to replace sweets. And they're really good for you!
