    What to do: Pick an unhealthy snack or food you indulge in, and eat a healthier alternative for the next 7 days.

    As you get started with your diet program, one of the most difficult things that you'll have to start doing is forgoing some of your favorite food items.

    Whether it's chips, chocolate, pancakes on the weekend, or pizza on a Friday night when you're watching a movie or the big game with your buddies, now that you're geared on achieving optimal health and weight loss results, these foods simply can't stay in the plan.

    As a result, you're going to be dealing with some food cravings. This is natural and normal so take comfort in knowing this is to be expected.

    To help combat this problem, your job is to swap a problem or vice food with a healthier alternative. Cutting something out is incredibly difficult. Replacing something with something else – now that's easier.

    So this is just what you're going to do.

    Let's give you some quick ideas to get you started.

    1. Swap Potato Chips For Trail Mix

    Potato chips are rich in unhealthy fats, loaded with carbs, and high in sodium. Trail mix, on the other hand, will provide a nice blend of healthy fats, protein, and fiber.

    2. Exchange Cream Cheese For Peanut Butter

    Always smear on a few tablespoons of cream cheese at breakfast? Go for peanut butter instead. The fat profile is the same and both will still provide you with the same creamy taste you're after.

    3. Turkey Burgers Are In, Hamburgers Are Out

    If you can kick your craving for a burger, try a turkey burger instead. Ground turkey meat is loaded with protein, low in fat, and will help you reach your muscle building goals.
