I wished I had read this article in! I actually started early by going to see my sisters in Virginia on November 9; ate 3 (fattening) squares a day which consisted primarily in seafood but it wasn't all broiled! Not to mention the sides and a couple diversions of GREAT Mexican food. I returned just before Thanksgiving and started in on the holiday grazing (wondering the whole time why we feel we HAVE to eat like pigs at this time of year - not to mention eating those things I don't generally eat - enriched flour and sugar!!!) OK, all that aside, regarding #3, the cravings. I have recently admitted that I am powerless over nuts.....especially almonds. I buy that big bag of oven roasted almonds and once I eat my first handful it's off to the races. I seem to have no control once I've eaten the first one. This applies to most nuts except walnuts and pecans which I sometimes chop up and put on my oats. ANYWAY, I've made a conscious decision to lose ten pounds and to quit buying nuts!! I know they are great for us but I am assuming they mean in moderation - like alcohol :) (I CAN moderate dark chocolate, btw)
