Same thing, I do something else

Painting my nails is GREAT for preventing mindless eating.

You don't have to eat the whole thing.

Actually, the things I do are similar. I play on my phone, chat, move around, drink water, play with my kids, anything to avoid eating if I'm not really hungry. Usually if I can get around it for 20-30 minutes, I don't want anything after that.

One of my biggest craving-fighters is TEA.

A cup of tea is one of the easiest ways for me to distract myself. A warm cup of tea fills my belly, keeps my hydrated, and fights sweet cravings. I tend to make mine with a bit of stevia for sweetness (though I used to use sugar and figured a spoon of sugar was better than a wad of chips and dip!)

I am a busy body and usually crave some kind of snack when I am still, like watching tv. I guess the motion of snacking satisfies my need to be busy. When I recognize this I find something else to do like play a game on my phone or cut and organize my coupons. I can do both these thing while watching tv and hanging out with the family. I'd love to hear how others deal with this.
