The funny thing is that I have an entire pantry full of all sorts of different snack foods that my kids eat. But I am not drawn to eat any of it. For some reason the only thing I have a problem with is the food I buy for myself to eat, and I have a problem limiting the portions of certain things.
Have you tried - yes, this sounds odd - looking to see what the serving amount is and measuring it all out into baggies consisting of a single serving? It seems to help me a little. I like the idea of some foods coming in bags/containers of serving portion, but I was paying more just for that. So I started doing this, and it seems to help me stay mindful of what I am eating.
