Great Tips to Curb Mindless Grazing

Here are great tips to curb mindless grazing – courtesy of Jillian Michaels.

To curb daytime grazing:

  • Don’t eat while you’re standing up, in the car, on the go, or when you don’t have time for a full, proper meal. If you sit down at mealtimes and pay attention to every bite, you’ll be more relaxed; you’ll notice when you’re satisfied, which means that you’ll be less likely to overeat — and you’ll actually enjoy your food!
  • Don’t skip meals. I mean it. You might think you’re saving yourself calories, but it will only leave you famished and more likely to consume extra calories later on to feel full.

To curb nighttime grazing:

  • Why do most people graze at night? Because they’re bored. If you’ve been thinking about taking up knitting, crossword puzzles, Ping-Pong, or some other hobby that will keep your brain busy in the evening, now is the time to do it.
  • Brush your teeth. Food never seems quite as appealing when you have that fresh, minty toothpaste taste in your mouth.
  • Try a cup of hot tea; the warm liquid in your stomach can help you feel satiated.

Now go run!
