I’m a snacker, a constant eater. I eat when I’m bored, watching tv, waiting for laundry, doing homework… and whenever I feel even the slightest bit hungry. Or when I think I should be hungry. Now, I’ve tried to bring these urges under control since I changed by diet and for awhile it worked well. However, the longer I continue on my journey, I can feel the monster reemerging from inside.
My goal right now is that when I feel hungry, I drink a full glass of water (or herbal tea). This process not only hydrates my body but also allows me the chance to see if I’m actually hungry or just want to eat for the sake of eating. Eating healthy is better than eating junk food but you can also consumer too much “healthy food” such as nuts and fruit, etc. I’m also trying to find easy, healthy snacks to fill the cravings when they’re still there after the water process.
So today I’m turning to all of you. What are your tricks to fighting off the snack cravings? What snacks do you eat that are healthy? Any suggestions?
