Red Light! Green Light!

This week our focus was on Eating Triggers. Here's an update for those of you that may not have made it to the meeting.

Green Light foods: These foods can be handled easily and generally do not trigger overeating. Make sure your fridge and pantry is stocked with these foods.

Yellow Light foods: These foods can be controlled in some circumstances. (I will only eat one brownie at a friend's house, but may eat them all if at home) Know what will work for you and steer clear of an abundance of yellow light foods at home.

Red Light foods: Generally means "Don't go there" as they cannot be controlled. (yet!) It is best to avoid these foods until you can learn how to manage them.

Identifying which foods trigger you to eat inappropriately can help you manage them better.
