Last Update: March 9, 2020

When you sit down at your favorite restaurant and they bring out the bread basket, it’s game over. Those crusty-on-the-outside, fluffy-on-the-inside loaves can be like kryptonite to your willpower.

Celebrity fitness trainer Jillian Michaels is here to help. Her strategy: Manage your environment by removing opportunities to be allured by the guilty pleasures you want to avoid. This means refusing that bread basket even before your server seats you at the table, and steering clear of the office kitchen when you know it’s full of donuts and bagels just waiting to sabotage your diet.

Michaels calls this practicing “strategic avoidance.” Press play to learn more of her tips on how to effectively curb temptation. As she puts it, “a good plan sets you up to succeed.” Just what we need to hear with the new year on the horizon.
