Avoiding Temptation in the Grocery Store?

I’m thinking about what my life will be like post-surgery. How do you all avoid giving in to temptation in the grocery store? In my grocery store, our bakery is right next to the produce section, so it’s really easy to just walk a few more steps and get myself something tasty. What do you do about this? I was thinking that maybe I should have my groceries delivered for a little while or order them and then drive there to pick up my order so I don’t have to go into the store at all. Any ideas?

It is important to be psychologically prepared about certain adjustments to diet, post-surgery. Raw fruits and vegetables are not advisable for a few months after surgery. With just a little effort and will, you can overcome this temptation.

I had groceries delivered for a few months after my surgery. I knew it would be difficult for me to face temptation, so I just took that factor out of the equation. It was easier for me to just order what I needed online and have it delivered until I got more used to my post-op diet.

It is good to read tips here about this because I am an impulse shopper. If I see something good, or smell something, I just go out and buy it. I know that physically I won’t be able to eat so much anymore but I am afraid of impulse buying, eating and then something going wrong.
