How Do You Cope With People Eating Sweet Treats In Front Of You?

How Do You Cope With People Eating Sweet Treats In Front Of You?

I have just drastically reduced my consumption of sugary snacks due to starting on insulin. I honestly expected my partner would stop eating them in front of me but he hasnt.

Over Christmas the house was full of chocolates and pastries and everyone was eating them except me and it did not bother me , it was tough at first to see but two years later no problem . Good Luck mind over matter .

I agree. Cut the carbs and you can have sweets in moderation but not every day.

I work at a child development center as an early child development teacher. I snack on unsalted sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds or sweet potato tortilla chips and I ricola unsweetened cough drops. I drink sugar free totally light iced tea mix tea 2 go green tea pack that you pour into 16.9 fl oz bottled water 0 calories, 0 carbs and 100% vitamin C sweetened with splenda. I drink 1-2 liters of water daily and I walk 20 minutes 4 times daily due to my work schedule.
Blessings to us all of good health and happiness.

When I know snacks are going to be served, I take a protein bar or some crackers to have with others. If I don't know, then I will try to have something low in carbs or sugar. Just one.
