So, I'm wandering around my house tonight, having eaten a good, sensible dinner not too long ago. I'm not stuffed, not starving, just right. But I want to keep stuffing my face! It was the old "reach for sweets and don't stop" reflex that I sometimes have, that usually leads to a consuption of way too much chocolate.
And I was headed in that direction, too. But then, I spied some hard candy my husband keeps in his goody jar. I'm not much of a hard candy fan; that just isn't one of my triggers. But I pop one in my mouth. The fact that it is sweet and takes a long time to dissolve turns out to be be a perfect combo in stopping the binge dead in it's track.
Ok. I know candy isn't a good thing for those of us that are dieting. But eating a little of it is surely better than mindlessly stuffing one's face for many more calorie's worth of junk.
Do any of you have any tips on other things I might be using to keep my mouth busy when I have this mindless grazing impulse?
