You try. Really, you do. But when you are faced with a chocolate chip cookie and a big juicy orange, sometimes that cookie is just too tempting to turn away. That’s OK because it turns out you're not alone. More than 68% of people eventually choose a not-so-good-for-them treat.
You don't need a researcher to tell you that when people are given the choice, it’s in their nature to choose impulsively and sometimes unconsciously. The key to combat this behavior is to plan out those healthy snacks. You'll be more likely to stick with a healthful choice if you've thought about it ahead of time.
