1). Swap your to-go order – If you have to eat on the run, choose grilled chicken over fried, or get apple slices instead of chips!
2). Skip the salty isle – Don’t stock up on salty crackers and chips when at the grocery store. That way when you have a craving, they won’t be ready and waiting for you in the cupboard. You would have to drive to get them.. and that is an inconvenience to you – therefore you skip eating them all together!
3). Eat Breakfast – Eating a healthy 300 calorie breakfast each morning will keep you energized and full until lunch time – decreasing your snack consumption. Eat a balanced meal with whole grains and protein.
4).Do a purge – Go through your freezer and cupboards and get rid of any unhealthy snacks that might be in there – ice cream, chips, cookies, candy, etc. That way, they won’t be there when you have a craving. Replace them with healthier snack choices like nuts, fruit, and whole grain products.
5). Nix the night-time eating – Stop eating after 6:30 or 7 pm. That is the time when most sit down to relax and end up munching on junk food. After dinner, put a stop to the eating to let your body digest and settle.
