Curb Your Cravings - Not Your Enthusiasm

January is the month of revival, whispers all around of a better year - aspirations held for those resolutions you have either penned to paper, or kept quietly in your thoughts.

According to data published from various studies published throughout the last 5 years, every January, roughly 40% of Americans vow to change something in their lives, in the form of a resolution. One of the top 3 resolutions is to lose weight1.

A study published in 2002 by Scranton University1, shows statistics for the percentage of people who had made New Year's resolutions, as the resolve to keep those resolutions dwindles steadily over time:
  • Resolutions held past the first week: 75%
  • Resolutions held past 2 weeks: 71%
  • Resolutions held after one month: 64%
  • Resolutions held after 6 months: 46%
The Study gathered data on the usefulness of resolutions made in January. To gather data, 2 groups of subjects were followed over a 6 month period and interviewed. The groups were made up of:
  1. People who had NOT sat down and made resolutions.
  2. People who DID make the effort to create resolutions.
The Study found that after 6 months time 46% of the people who HAD made resolutions were successfully accomplishing their resolution goals - compared to only 4% success rate of those who did NOT create resolutions .

This is good news for people who have reachable aspirations this year. For those of you who are seeking to shed extra pounds this year, it may be in your favor to write down a resolution or two. By keeping your resolutions in an accessible place, you create a reviewable bookmarklet of your goals. This will help improve your willingness to keep your word, as well as serve as a constant reminder of what you are working toward.

Once you have established your basic goals for weight loss, it is time to confront the barrage of seemingly frustrating obstacles, some are - portion control, peer pressure, advertising, self esteem, cravings and lack of motivation.

One of the biggest problems dieters face is curbing cravings for high calorie foods. The salty, crunchy and mostly grease laden mass produced items like chips, are readily available via retail shelves and can be found virtually everywhere - vending machines, break rooms and parties etc.

What can be done about cravings? Deprivation - The act of denying oneself access to these treats? Well studies also reveal that denying cravings only results in more weight gain, because most dieters succumb to the internal turmoil caused by the denial, and then start the binges. Binges are mainly eating large amounts of high calorie foods for an extended period, disregarding portion control or the caloric values. This can create an ugly cycle with dieters. It can be quite disheartening.

I think one effective method to ward off cravings is to find a similar food - one that is close to the texture, and taste of that high calorie, unneeded food you might crave. The key is to find the version that is the least in calories, yet still as tasty.

Thankfully flavor technologies are starting to catch up with the science of creating and marketing low calorie products. The bland, obviously doctored tastes of diet foods past seems to have dissolved, much like the once bad after tastes.

So keeping in tune with this post, I wanted to share that I discovered something recently, that was pretty nifty. Kellogg's brand 'Special K ' has started marketing low calorie snacks as part of their pro-low calorie product line. I think by far the multi-grain crackers they just released are one of the tastiest store bought crackers I have had in a while.

The closest retail comparison I could think of is "Wheat Thins". Now I have not been a fan of "Wheat Thins", the crackers are a bit too substantial for my taste. And they have an overpowering taste that competes with anything you add to them. Plus I find that I get this odd after taste when I have had a few at a time.

But Special K's multi-grain crackers surprised me. They have a very light & airy texture with bits of whole grains - but can still hold their own when used with a thicker dip or soft cheese. The taste of the cracker comes off very pleasant, with a slight hint of onion. Very buttery.

I honestly can say they were extremely good. Something I will keep in my pantry.




There is a second variety of Special K's crackers I tasted. The flavor is Italian Tomatoes & Herb. Now if you are someone who loves the taste of tomato bisque or sun-dried tomatoes - you will appreciate this variety.

I am not a fan of tomato bisque. I love marinara sauces and sun-dried tomato but something about that kind of soup just doesn't do it for me.

I did taste the crackers enough to get a sense of their flavor. The tomato flavor is pretty heavy in these crackers. IThe crackers actually reminded me of tomato soup with an aged cheese melted into it.

My husband (who happens to be an avid tomato bisque consumer) loved these crackers. As did my 20 month old. Plus they passed the "picky eater" test with my 5 yr old.

So if you are looking for something to curb your cravings, these crackers seem like a win-win. Per serving of 17 crackers it is only 90 calories. They come in individual portion controlled .77 oz pouches, or you can purchase a box of 6 pouches, and for larger amounts, the 8 oz carton is great for parties.

You can view more about the crackers , such as the nutritional & allergy info, by clicking on the above links (which point to Kellogg's website) or visit their product pages:

I'll write down my resolutions now. Number 1 on the list: lose weight. I've been eating multi-grain loaf breads and biscuits but they're rather bland tasting. I'll check out these K crackers. They look delicious. Thanks!

I used to be in sales and one kinda corny thing I learned was that a goal is just a dream until you write it down. This post reminded me of that lesson and the stats kinda backed it up. This year I have a goal of completing something by the end of the year and I planned out a certain amount I would do each day. I have fallen about 6 days behind. I need to catch up or I will fall into the 54% that don't last 6 months. Thanks for this post, I will use it as motivation to get back on track.

10:30 PM, February 11, 2009 Reply  

Like everyone else, losing weight is a yearly resolution that I have especially that I am always in the kitchen cooking food for the family. The greatest obstacle for me would be "craving" - I just find it hard to control.

2:31 PM, February 12, 2009 Reply  

Uh, these are new! I haven't even seen them here in the shops, but I gotta try them when they become avaible! ;)

I for one never manage to keep my resolutions!! When it comes to losing weight, I'm just really lazy. This year however, has been a bit different - I'm doing ok. I try and eat special K every morning and I've been trying to eat a lot more fruit, with exercise thrown in.
Good luck everyone - keep going with the resolutions!

I'm one of those people who wrote a resolution and included a plan about losing weight(Talk about typical! lol). Anyway, it's already March and I'm still caught up in my diet and fitness plan. I think it's coming along nicely though, nothing drastic or anything... Right now, I eat a lot of oat fiber crackers. I'll try that special k crackers too, thanks for putting it up.

Thanks for sharing, interesting read, i made a similar resolution this year and i can proudly say i'm still sticking to them :D but it is hard though so i agree with David daily goals are definitely the way forward

I dont really need to lose weight, but to look smarter, i try my best to eat less carb .. i know i'm very bad at making shedules and very good at ruining them :)
thats why i ve left planning, i simply eat ethically ... lolz being ethical is stopping myself from eating too much whenever i feel i do ...

11:28 AM, March 11, 2009 Reply  

The part about choosing foods closer to the high calorie foods is really inspiring. I know that soyabean milk is a good replacement for cow milk itself and could contribute towards making the cravings smaller. There are similarly plenty of foods which can come pretty close to the crave-foods

4:58 AM, March 12, 2009 Reply  

Cravings galore. Resolution will always be a resolution to some...nothing to change at all...its just a matter of "show" purposes. Hows this one? It takes discipline to fulfill promises. But I know there were some who were serious enough to follow their goals.

Interesting facts. If giving up a certain food is really hard, one can try cutting down on portion size. Dieting is all about gradual changes to healthy way of eating.

I like to snack on the ak mak 100% whole wheat crackers. 115 calories, 2g of fat for 5 crackers. No trans fat.

Crunchy so they are satisfying. Trader Joes sells them.

12:47 AM, March 15, 2009 Reply  

I believe that those 'cravings pangs' attack when you're depriving yourself. I've been fighting off obesity for several years now and I've experienced food binge many times. Since there are many healthy snacks available nowadays, I have no more reason to deprive myself of those delicious crunchy stuff. For me, canned fruits in very light syrup are the best snacks!

9:11 PM, March 15, 2009 Reply  

Amber. Thanks for that info! I also, have made diet resolutions only to fail! Is March to late to write down that plan :)? I stumbled upon the special K crackers the other day and I am impressed. For me they can take the place of chips. Fruit? Yuck, I still believe Eve was tempted by a `candy' apple ...... :)

Yes, people are making firm resolutions to begin their years in a fresh perspective. Even I had one, that of exercising regularly atleast half an hour.

I didn't do my resolutions this year because I never can keep them but I'd like to lose some weight this year and I love the Special k products so I will start buying some of them.

2:42 AM, March 17, 2009 Reply  

For the 1st time ever, just after the New Year, I wrote a list of about 30 or so goals that at the time seemed insurmountable and really tough to find the time to do. I diarised the actions and then I found on the day I was a lot more prepared to do them.

As a result my years worth of goals are nearly complete in the first quarter! Love it!

That gave me inspiration to make a Special K snack bar. We make one that is like a Rice Krispy bar but we use huge puffed and toasted rice. We could have 2 varieties... the "good bar" with lo fat and the "bad bar" with butter and marshmallows. YUM.

I love eating crackers because of the delicious noises they make inside my mouth. I like the multi-grain variety but with not much salt. Mmm... Crunchy!

4:55 PM, April 11, 2009 Reply  

I can't get enough of multi-grain, but do i see tomato and herb.. in crackers? I've always liked Special K cereal though, so I guess it can't be all that bad. Its good to hear about the 46%, you would think it would be the other way around.

Eat healthy nutrient rich foods, exercise and maybe even have a treat once a week.

Putting your goals in writing, whether they be a new year's resolution or any other time really does something for you. It's almost like a contract with yourself and creates a much more powerful projection on your mind. Really powerful stuff I recommend anyone use. Also, yup, eating a similar product to the one you crave is a great tactic to use, I can vouch for that as I often crave "junk" hehe!

Is it really healthy?
Can you tell me more about it?

One trick I learned to lose weight is to eat EXTREMELY sloooooooooooooooooooooooooooowwwwwwww.

Most overweight people have a tendency to eat very quickly. While skinny people take their time. The trick I learned is to get a little count down timer, set it for 12 minutes, and slowly savior my meal.

This can be pure torture at first but if you manage to do this with every meal then you're guaranteed to lose weight.

Its a bit hard to read about Kelloggs as sort of protectors of healthy life style. But never mind - better they promote something mass producted and cereal then just the usualsomething made from sugar. well - just my five cents as german girl watching developement of food in US...

Very interesting.. Nice post. I have often thought about some of the points you bring up. The way you expressed it
really makes a lot of sense.

well I think I am one of those who never change resolutions... Every year I try to change something new... my car... my laptop, quit smoking! drinking less, more holiday, more domestic travels but I never do that...

I keep on reading how healthy "Special K cereal is, but I just can't eat it. I have tried a few times and it is just too boring. I have put blueberries and bananas in it, which has helped. These crackers seem different though, I will have to give them a try.

I eat lots of sweet products. One time I used artificial sweetener, and so I lost about seven kilos in two months. Later I heard that it is very harmful and causes cancer.

January isn't only to make resolution,but make good resolutions and try your best to achive that target within year end.........

Your information about cravings REALLY hit home. I can go for days/weeks with denying myself one particular decandent pleasure... Chocolate.

Then I break down and eat an entite bag of minatures. Then, back to the deprivation. Almost and endless cycle. I have found that by allowing myself smal portions every couple of days, I was able to hold off the binge until my body didn't crave it anymore.

I am also one amongst those people who make tall resolutions at the start of the year and let it fade away as the year goes on and once again the same story unfolds. I am awake once again to try once again but this time with the aid of your recommendations and replacement yummies to lessen my tummy.

I don't have a weight problem, but this post reminded me of my childhood, when I liked very much the sugar frosting K cereals. I ll try the crackers - they can be a healthy snack.

Enjoy eating!

I've always been terrible with new year's resolutions, but two friends of mine decided to go vegan for 6 months. I didn't want to ask, but I would say each of them lost almost 40lbs. Their 6 months is up now and they are back to eating a vegetarian diet, but it was a very impressive effort and I'm sure it was a very healthy decision for them.

Before I saw this, I had no idea that Special K had low-calorie crackers, which is so fantastic since I love their low-calorie cereal bars. These are really helpful to stick to small portions and still feel satisfied if you are trying to cut back on your diet.
