  • These might work for some but most of these won't work for me :-D i actually started eating with my left hand years ago as a means to give my right hand a break. All the crafts I do and computer work was just making my right hand have carpul tunnel a lot. Anyway now I eat with my left hand all the time and I can tell you it doesn't make me eat less :)

    I find the only trick that really helps is to not have too much junk in the house. If the only choices are healthy foods, I'll definitely eat those way more. I have quite a bit of will power most days, but there are always some days where the treats are calling my name and having nothing in the house does help.

    Another thing that helps is to drink lots of water. If i drink a ton of water and still feel hungry then maybe I am really actually hungry. Finally, going to bed instead of having a late night snack helps too. Often I feel hungry b/c I'm up too late and I just tell myself GO TO BED! and end up not eating. - 12/28/2016 11:23:26 PM

  • Excellent resource. To those who are hard of hearing, if you look at the little white box at the bottom of the screen, fourth icon from the right, you should be able to turn subtitles on. - 8/22/2015 8:22:07 AM

  • I went out and bought a smaller plate at a thrift store quite some time ago. Red is a trigger color for me; I could not abide red dishes in my cabinets, but someone mentioned blue... that I could try. I normally eat snacks with my non-dominant hand, but from decades working with both hands, I think I am about 90% ambidextrous. Or perhaps I'd be eating far more if I used my originally dominant hand!

    Interesting tips. I had a hard time hearing it, and wish they'd offer more of this kind of thing in a slide-show or just text with illustrations.

    I think different things work for different people, and this gives us a variety of tips to try. - 5/6/2015 9:07:24 AM
