After I have something to eat, I brush my teeth right away. That way after having a minty, clean mouth, I don't want to mess it up with anything like chocolate, or a salty snack. It just won't taste the same. And why brush your teeth if you're just going to eat something else, right? That also gives me time to get over the craving I have right after a meal, for something sweet to... 'top it off'.

Insprirational Eating is what I named the tailor fit program created by me. Rules: No second helpings. No snacks. Eat when hungry---stop when satisfied. Brush teeth right after eating and don't eat again unless you are willing to re-brush teeth!
I got in the habit of removing my makeup right after dinner instead of waiting until bed time when I am too tired. I also put on my eye cream & other creams then because I am a night owl & when I go to bed late, I don't want to do it then so this helps me make sure it is done ahead of time.
Also floss your teeth right after your last snack in the early evening & brush your teeth so you won't be tempted to eat again.
