If you anything like me, you don’t want to give up you sweets or at least chocolate. It is good idea not to completely cut yourself off of sweets and junk food because once you do that you only want it more.

So to balance it out, have a snack every once in awhile because that will make leaving the sweets behind easier than just going cold turkey. Try treating yourself once a week and then slowly cut it back until you are barely snacking on the junk food and sweets.

One way to do that is blending healthy shakes with little treats inside that will kick the craving and benefit your weight loss journey.
