What do you do to curb that "i feel snacky even though I'm not actually hungry" feeling? I like tea or going for a walk. What do you all do?

Take a BIG drink of water every time I think about food until the thought goes away.

When that doesn't work, I remove myself from what I am currently doing, take the dog for a walk, clean the kitchen, go file (depends on where I am).

If that doesn't work then I just go have a bite of what ever it is I am thinking of so I can get it off my mind and move on, lol. But, it gets counted. If I don't count it I'm only lying to myself!

I like green tea. Makes me feel more healthy and yoga-ish (lol) after I've finished it, so I rarely go for the intended snack afterwards.

I chew gum, this helps me.

Lately, I just eat it. And get fatter. Awesome.

I'm another one who drinks water and if I'm still hungry in half an hour then I'll have some crackers or feta cheese which seems to help curb the hunger. :)

I count to 100, do some sit ups, maybe jog in place for a bit. If I know for a fact that it's not legitimate hunger, I'll go brush my teeth or have a mint. Usually either of those work. :p

That's after drinking water... but I generally drink around 90-100 oz of water everyday anyways... so yeah.

I like to give my hands something to do. Such as a manicure (or pedicure) - after all, it's hard to eat while you're doin' yer nails :D

I like to knit.

I'm also still trying to figure this out - I know water and tea doesn't help me. Pickles and apples are OK.

I guess I pray a distraction will come my way and save me from the snack monsters!

Lately, I've been drinking tea. Before I would just eat everything in sight. Last night I was ravenous, after eating all my points for the day (I follow WW). I had a babybel cheese, even though my bf left a Twix in the fridge for me to stare at! I think a small snack is okay if your feeling snacky. Maybe a sugar free jello, or cottage cheese will take the edge off.
