Macaroni and Cheese Please!

Oh my god people, I'm having like the most intense craving for some macaroni and cheese. I found a box in the pantry but I decided to be smart and give it some time before I do something irrational. Well, I've waited over an hour and I still really really want the mac and cheese!

I can't deprive myself of it, that's counterproductive. It won't be too bad because it doesn't violate my rules for the week. I am allowed 2 servings of carbs a day and the forbidden food of the week is fried food. I'm going to have some, with a plan.

The plan:

a) Make sure I take my supplements first

b) Take a fiber pill 15 minutes before

c) Eat a vegetable beforehand

d) Serve myself HALF of the recommended serving (I've learned to get satisfied on small portions)

e) Serve along with a veggie burger patty (no bun since I'm having macaroni) + turkey and cheese roll ups

f) If not full (I'm almost certain I'll be more than satisfied by then), then I can have the other serving half

I was craving mac and cheese, so I bought this.

What is a fiber pill? Does it really work?

I used to take green tea pills, but it only made me pee!

OM, mmm looks good. Basically the fiber pill is nothing put a piece of fiber that expands in your stomach to give you a feeling of fullness. Yes it does work but you really have to take it a good 15 minutes before you eat. It's the same thing as drinking a glass of metamucil before your meals.

W, yea I know lol :)

Update: I didn't end up doing it, I didn't eat the mac n cheese. I stepped on the scale and saw a very undesired number and no longer had the appetite for the macaroni. However later on that day I ended up eating at least 3 and maybe 4 chocolate chip cookies-the mac n cheese would have been better
