How do I do the ignite program while providing food for my family?

  • My children and husband will not take part in the program, but one of the beginning steps is to clear your fridge and pantry of all "evil" foods. Any tips on how I can begin the program and still have all that other food around?

    We ask you to get rid of the foods from your house so that you are in a safe zone. I don't know about you, but I'm much more likely to cheat at night and if there is food around. Having to leave the house is often enough to keep the cheating at bay.

    You can do this without getting rid of the foods, you just have to commit that much more. Also, hopefully you will see such great results in energy that your husband will be interested in giving it a go.

    Let us know how we can help! Ignite is great, I just completed 21 days and I feel great. I found that after the first week it was a lot easier.

    I was able to win my family over on everything except snack foods, like chips, crackers and candy. We designated one special little cupboard for junk food only. That way, I don't have to look at it every time I'm getting my own food. I still know it's there, so it's not as great as getting it out of the house completely, but it helps!

      I have the same issue. Especially beginning right after the holidays, so many leftover treats. The designated cabinet is a good one, I also recommend buying them ONLY the snacks that you don't like. i.e. - I hate BBQ chips, so I can keep those around for when my skinny family needs a salty treat. I also am averse to milk chocolate and angry bird fruit chews, so those will not be eliminated from the cabinet.
