Take a deep breath. When you're stressed or anxious, instead of reaching for a bag of
chips, focus on your breath. A few slow, steady breaths through the nose can calm frazzled nerves. Add a mantra: Inhale peace, exhale tension.
Craving something creamy? Go for Greekstyle yogurt. Even the fat-free varieties are thick, rich and creamy--with a bit of tang for extra flavor. Use it to top tacos, mix it into smoothies, or lightly
sweeten and put a dollop on fruit.
Track your calories. Knowing that you have to log that candy bar, extra-large fries or second can of soda means you'll think twice before chowing down. Look up calorie counts of junk foods to help discourage cravings.
( JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN TRACK DOES NOT MEAN EAT IT.. YOU ( yeah you with the funny hat on) JUST SAY NO! ~ )
Drink water. Thirst is often mistaken for hunger. When you feel an overwhelming urge to snack, drink a glass of water and wait 20 minutes. Your "hunger" pangs will likely recede.
Start a new hobby.
Many people eat when they're bored. Whether you take up knitting, table tennis or scrapbooking, finding something to do with your hands and your
mind can help you quell the urge to graze or binge.
