Default PM Snack Time Devil

I get the munchies so bad right before dinner, I'm such a "nibbler" which is a bad habit, but I nibble a little bit of everything as I cook and I know those little nibbles add up What do you all do to ge through PM snack attacks before dinner...I do chew gum while making dinner sometimes and that does help a bit.

My go to snack is a SF FF latte at Starbucks about 3:30 and then carrots (Phase II) & hummus. Anything with beans really fills me up. Today I had a boiled egg that really stuck to my ribs. Also I eat a lot of veggies with lunch (about 4 cups) with plenty of protein that really keeps me full.

My toughest time is after dinner too. But I often have two afternoon snacks so I am not overly starving before the meal. And drink lots of tea. What about some crockpot meals so you are not cooking at the same hour you are tempted to nibble?

Evenings are my worst time-it's not hunger just a continual desire to graze. I don't nibble while cooking(my rule). If I am finding I really want to, I will put a few of the nibble items on a plate and sit down for a snack, then resume with dinner when I'm finished. I go to bed earlier these days, too.

Schedule a small snack for that difficult time, and make it something you really like like nuts or something like that. For me, sometimes I have a pickle when I come home from work. The saltiness and crunch (I like half sour pickles) satiates my cravings and the pickle actually does fill me up.

I have some "amazing grass" powder in chocolate. A little of that in some FF milk and it does the trick for that evening grazing time. It takes care of that "I want something, but I don't know what I want" time I've always had problems with. It not only takes the snack urge away, it adds some veggies too.

I really dont 'have snack attacks, but I am working on another hard to break habit. ~ One that I have had for years and I thought was gone until this past winter. I tend to want to eat stuff when NO ONE is around. Crazy I know, but with three kids, a cat, being a teacher, a wife, there is always someone around. I like to enjoy food alone sometimes. But... thankfully for me, this week being on SB, has completely helped that!

*Brush you teeth. When your mouth is minty, your are offten compelled not to dirty your mouth right away*

*Make a deal with yourself. Every time you "nibble"... do 10 squats. The next day you will be so sore, you wont' want to nibble!*

*Already suggested, but drink water.*

*Give yourself a dollar for every day you don't nibble. AT the end of the month go buy a new skirt or blouse!*
