7 Tricks To Stop Eating Out Of Boredom!

We all do it. When the house is clean, it’s the weekend, there’s nothing on TV, and nothing better to do.. We snack. Problem is, a few potato chips here, and few cookies there, they add up in pounds on your midsection!! Here’s how to stop:

Pre-make your snacks- Put an even mixture of healthy options on a plate and put it in the fridge. Most snacking comes from the convenience of opening a bag. Now it’s just as simple as opening the fridge.

Sip Water- Slowly sipping water throughout the day will help eliminate snacking urges.

Walk- Instead of grabbing the box of crackers, grab your mp3 player and take a brisk walk around the block.

Call someone- It’s a GREAT distraction from wanting to eat.

Keep your hands busy- Do a crossword, work on a project, give yourself a pedi. Organize your office. Anything to keep your hands from reaching for another chip.

Keep your mouth busy- Chew gum!!! It satisfies your urge to nibble on something without the added calories!!

And finally-

Control your snack supplies- Only stock healthy snack options. If the junk isn’t in your cupboard or drawer, you’re not going to eat it!!

Great blog Moobie! I never thought about making healthy snacks ahead of time and storing them in the fridge. That's the first place I look when I'm about to snack/eat out of boredom. Thanks!
