TALK TO YOURSELF
If the opening notes of Saturday Night Live have you reaching for ice cream, announce to yourself and anyone else around, "I'm not hungry, but I am going to eat this anyway."
WHY IT WORKS:
Enjoy your favorite foods, because outlawing them can lead to a binge. But narrating your indulgence can make the difference between a small splurge and a sugar bender. When you say out loud that you want a treat, you become aware of what you're eating and why. You might still opt for Chunky Monkey, but you'll be less likely to eat the entire carton.
