You know how whenever you try to tell yourself to not think about something or someone, you always end up thinking about that thing or person even more? Well, the same holds true for food.
When going on a diet, the last thing you want to have on your mind is a nice and juicy burger with bacon and cheese, or a pizza baked to perfection with pepperoni, sausage, Portobello mushrooms, Roma tomatoes and cheese. Yet often those are the types of things you cannot help but think about when on a restricting diet.
Currently, I am putting a limit on what to eat and how much to eat. That’s because I regrettably did some damage to my waistline over the Thanksgiving weekend, and I will need to be on stage to perform again in less than a month. Not to mention the fact that I want to lose some extra weight in case I gain some back over Christmas and New Year.
Ever since I have started my diet, I have been constantly thinking about foods that I should not be eating. I have also started to spend a lot of time looking up pictures of food. I go to the websites of some of my favorite restaurants to look at the pictures.
I also search for new eateries in my local area, and read up on what their menus have to offer. Plus I spend lots of time checking out the websites and forums that are dedicated to food porn. In a way, it helps me to get through my cravings.
