I remember back in the day I did Weight Watchers our group leader said that you never need more than a spoonful or two of a treat. After all, you're not eating it to satisfy your hunger, that's what healthy food is for. You're doing it to satisfy your tastebuds and if you savour that taste slowly there is no need for any more than a morsel. It's great to see you putting that into action!

If you hold the food in your mouth and really, really take your time tasting it your enjoyment of that mouthful will be much higher than if you wolf down an entire bucket without thinking. It's always tempting to go back for more, but you just have to remind yourself that if you're not feeling satisfied with a few spoonfuls then an entire bowl isn't going to make you feel any better, you'll probably still want more anyway. Enjoying a mouthful for just a few calories will make you feel better longer, too. A huge bowl with a huge amount of calories will just make you feel bloated and guilty for the rest of the day, whereas you're still going to feel great after a small treat. And since it's the 'feel good' feeling we're after, it actually makes sense to have only a tiny bit! Would you want to consume an extra 500 calories just for the opportunity to feel yuck after all?
