Retrain your brain.
Food is often associated with social situations, such as popcorn and candy at the movies, chocolate cake at a birthday party, and beer at a barbecue. Keep the big picture in mind and trade unhealthy snacks for healthy ones. Pack your own 100-calorie pack of light popcorn for the movies, stick to just one bite of cake instead of a whole slice, and swap the beer for a low carb light version. You can still have fun without derailing your health goals!
