I know that I'm in denial when it comes to food: portions, choices, etc. I think things like "I'm starving, I haven't eaten all day" (and then I'll slop a ton of pasta and sauce into a bowl), or "one little piece won't hurt" (and then I'll shove 2 or 3 fun-size Snickers down my gullet).
How can I stop being in denial? Because I know that all the exercise in the world won't work when it's up against lumberjack-sized portions and greasy, sugary, crappy foods. Sometimes I think I'm afraid of being hungry, which is ridiculous. The human body was designed to get hungry every 3-5 hours and I live in an industrialized country. There's chow everywhere. Any advice? Tips?
Also, what would be considered 1 serving of leafy greens? A cup? 2 cups? An entire flippin' head of lettuce?
