Key Takeaways:
"We know we're going out to a decadent restaurant for dinner. We think the best strategy is not to eat all day, save up all the calories so that we can use them for that particular special meal. But that really is exactly what you should not do. Because when you go into a big meal, having fasted, you can't help but be hungry." – Dr. Adrienne Youdim
"Once you decide intentionally that you're not going to partake, it's really not such a big deal. Think about it. Think about going into the meal with a mindset of abstinence, it may surprise you how easy it actually is." – Dr. Adrienne Youdim
"So you overate, you didn't do what you intended despite your best intentions. It doesn't really matter at the end of the day. Do you know what matters? What matters is the moment after; what did you do the moment after?" – Dr. Adrienne Youdim
