This is my third time to do the Kick Start. I have high blood fats and need to do it for health reasons. I've always fallen off before the end. This time I am joining the forum & would enjoy tips from others for those tough days when fast food fries call to me!
Think about what is calling you - is it the salt, the sweet (fast food fries are soaked in sugar water to make them golden brown like that), the crispy, etc. Is it the tang of the ketchup even? Once you can sort it out, you can find other options - baked sweet potato fries perhaps (make them at home or find good frozen organic ones to bake at home), or a handful of salted, cooked, chickpeas for that saltiness (also good if you're wanting peanuts - more fiber, less fat than peanuts). And so on. If you have a yen for A, pop in and this crew can usually come up with something that will satisfy that yen in a better way (like a dill pickle spear can sometimes quash a sweet craving).
