After a relationship breakup or divorce, it’s easy to turn to your comfort foods to help ease your mind from the emotional pain you’re going through; foods like chocolate, ice cream or fast food are easily obtainable and extraordinarily satisfying, but can make you feel regretful in the long-run, particularly when you realize you weigh slightly more than you thought you did. Well, it’s not as difficult as you think it is to maintain a healthier and just as satisfying diet.

 

Here are three tips to stay on track and maintain the perfect weight while you recover from heartbreak

 

Indulge in Your Own Snacks 
Unless you’re in an area filled with health-conscious individuals, it can be difficult to find healthy and tasty snacks when you’re craving a mid-afternoon pick-me-up. Things like fruits and vegetables with any healthy dip, whether it be carrots and hummus or apples and peanut butter, are both tasty and nutritionally satisfying snacks. Likewise, getting some plain or strained yogurt and adding some honey (add granola and/or fresh berries for added satisfaction) is a delicious way to satisfy a sweet tooth craving without terrible added sugars and artificial sweeteners. Just be sure to pay attention to the kind of yogurt you get; many of the flavored ones have things like high fructose corn syrup in them, which is detrimental to a healthy diet.
