Despite my love of kebabs I am losing weight. How can this be so?Willpower is finite. If we use it up uselessly then we will have none left when the real battle comes. Fat people talk about willpower and never get thin. Willpower does not work!
Ideally one should add temptations to life rather than subtract them. Develop a taste for fruit smoothies and frozen yogurt. When the hour of temptation comes we may give in to the 'good' temptation not the bad.
