Sometimes it can be tricky to stick to a healthy diet, and especially if you’re out and about with friends and family and are offered a sweet temptation. How do you say no without causing offence? How can you have the willpower to decline these sweet treats?

Be Prepared

Before you go out, make sure you have a well-balanced meal or healthy snack. Filling up on fibrous foods like apples and carrots will make it easier to decline foods packed with empty and sugary calories.

Pack A Few Healthy Snacks

Having something to snack on can help tremendously, such as nuts or seeds, or fresh fruit to satisfy a craving for something sweet.

Learn the Art of Saying “No” Politely

There will always be some people determined to get you to say yes and who will test your willpower! Get into the habit of politely declining their kind offer and make it clear you are serious about and value your health.
