Thumbs up Distraction ideas...

One thing recommended when we want to eat unplanned food is using distractions. How many can we think of. Please feel free to add some.

Posting...first line of defense ! Also, foraging for healthy alternatives, like a cup of herbal tea,or a plate full of crunchy raw veggies.

Hubby and I are both binge eaters and we get our worst urges at night, so when this happens, we like to pull out a game, Scrabble for instance. It takes out mind off the food and keeps out hands busy. The time passes pretty quickly and the urges do too.

Sorry if some of these repeat

Chew gum
go to sleep
read a book
paint your nails
put a mask on your face
organize your closet
clean out papers you have piling up
cuddle with a loved one or massage one another's feet with lotion (just a thought)
Find karaoke songs on youtube and sing along...I'm a dork!

After dinner, I declare the kitchen closed. Lights off, no more being served.
When all else fails, go to bed. Tomorrow will be better!

Something I found that works really well is to put white strips on your teeth. You get a whiter smile and don't feel like eating.
