Stop Buying Junk Food
Benefit: No junk food in the fridge translates to less junk in the trunk.
Set Back: You forget to toss out the holiday leftovers – and booze. Snacking on them creates a domino effect that ends with you resurrecting old eating habits.
The Fix: Clear the clutter. It is not enough to swear off new purchases of crappy food if you still have a fridge and freezer full of crap. Even though you have packed your Christmas cookies away in the freezer so they are not sitting out for easy munching, the plan is to stay away from empty calories – so why are they still in there?
