Controlling Your Environment – remove temptations
Planning and preparation can be extended into other aspects of your daily routine. There are many items on the dangerous food list that you will need to avoid. We’ll get to specifics in a later chapter. Removing those items from your home, from your working environment and from your shopping list is a vital step in sanitising your living space and putting temptation firmly out of sight and out of reach. It’s completely fair to ban unhealthy substances from your home and office.
If you want to take control of your weight, you’ll know that you’re going to make changes to your eating behaviour. It only makes sense to extend that control to your environment. You’ll feel better and you’ll start to build a strong sense of achievement, a feeling of personal satisfaction because you’re demonstrating that you really are taking control of your life. And that is a truly worthy objective.
