Do you cave and give in to your desire to eat the tempting food item that satisfies now but disappoints later? If so, you might not be taking this situation as a challenge and then working to meet the challenge. You might be experiencing your reaction to the temptation as an irresistible desire to which you must give in.
The temptation, of course, makes it a stressful situation, one in which you will have to deal with your feelings if you resist the temptation. So it’s only natural for you to want to relieve the stress by succumbing to the temptation. If you do succumb to the temptation, however, you will miss the opportunity to turn the stressful situation into a more benign situation. So why not take a risk by going out of your comfort zone. If you do, there is the distinct possibility you will overcome the temptation with your new adventurous spirit.
