Make peace with your trigger foods
Old resolution: That's it, no more chocolateever!
Banning your favorite treatwhether it's chocolate, soda, lattes, or french friesis bound to backfire, says Julie Upton, RD, Health.com's resident dietitian: "Dieters will eat it, binge on it, feel bad, and then throw in the towel and revert back to their old eating patterns."
Makeover: "Make peace with your trigger foods," Upton says. "Don't have them at home staring you in the face, but allow yourself to have them once or twice a week."
