Starting Over: Day Three

If am to be successful, I need to figure out how to deal with stress, anger, rage, and general grumpiness without eating a large bag of potato chips.

I don't wanna talk about it.

A good day three, Joel! I end up with "second breakfast" myself sometimes, too. But breakfast would also be a good place for the one thing you're missing: fruit. It will help fill you up, and it's good for you. You could also add veggies to the chicken & rice (broccoli is always good).

As for the chips: I crave salty stuff a lot, too. Eventually, you want to bring that to a minimum, but for now, focus on finding non-fried salty/savory munchies -- I like high-fiber baked crackers with low-fat dip, but anything with crunch & salt will satisfy 70% of that chip craving.

You're doing great, Joel. Every healthy choice you make is a step in the right direction. Focus on that, rather than the "ooooooh noes", and you'll be all right.
