8 Ways to Control Your Hunger
The sight of food can make your mouth water even if you’re already full, but eating too much is unhealthy and bad for your figure. Stop succumbing to temptation with these simple tips and a little willpower.
1. Make Smart Snack Associations
Instead of buying snacks or meals at a movie theatre, a ball game, or other event, chew a stick of sugar-free gum. Pretty soon you’ll associate the taste of gum, rather than high-calorie food, with that setting.
2. Avoid Stalking Snacks
At parties stand as far away as you can from the bowls of chips, dips, and other munchies.
3. Stop Road Trip Temptation
On car trips plan ahead by bringing a few low-calorie snacks. If you have a tendency to munch in the car, bring just a single serving, not the whole box. Put the rest in the trunk.
4. Go for Single Servings
Buy snacks in small packs. If you buy the giant size to economize, divide it into single-serving bags or containers as soon as you get home.
5. Use Strategic Placement
Put the healthiest snacks where you’ll see them when you first open a kitchen cabinet or the refrigerator. Hide the others behind them.
