Drinking Water

When you think you are hungry, many times you are really thristy and are misreading your body's cues. Drink an 8 oz glass of water first. Great b/c staying hydrated is so important, and if you are then hungry you'll eat less b/c your stomach is full! :-)

Grocery Shopping Backwards

At most grocery shops, produce, meat & dairy are the first depts. The problem (for me) was that I would pick up items from these sections & then get sidetracked reading labels & comparing prices in other areas, so my first items wouldnt stay cold. Now I shop 'backwards' & pick up cold items last

HUNGER

I find that a lot of times when I think I'm hungry, I'm really not. Most of the time that empty "NEED FOR FOOD" feeling is taken away by drinking water. emoticon

EAT BREAKFAST

Be sure to eat breakfast everyday! Breakfast used to be my Kryptonite but I have gotten into the habit of eating it. It gets the metabolism jump started in the morning and you won't over eat at lunch because you won't be STARVING.

Clean Teeth

After you eat your dinner go immediately and brush your teeth and floss very well. You will do your teeth and gums good and be discouraged at the same time to eat anything else before bed time. emoticon

Dark chocolate and tummy massage

When I get hungry and it's not lunch or dinner time yet, I often eat a small piece of very dark chocolate (70% cacao !) which is easy to find here in Belgium.
To make sure my bowels work every day, I give myself a tummy massage in bed before I go to sleep, it really helps !

I know life can be difficult sometimes, but for me I try and think positive about the situation and move forward and learn from it.
