Q. INSTEAD of noshing when I'm doing something (such as watching TV or some other "TRIGGER") that I have, in the past, associated with eating unnecessarily, now I do this:
(The CAPS are just for emphasis/easier reference; I'm NOT yelling.) : )
Almost everyone probably does more than one of these. The BEST answer is what you USUALLY do now:
A. I eat ONLY my meal/snack when I am engaging in this activity (such as watching TV).
B. I EAT something that has no calories or fewer calories than I would have before.
C. I DRINK something that has no calories or fewer calories than I would have before.
D. I keep my MOUTH busy (example: chewing *gum).
E. I keep my HANDS busy (example: knitting).
F. I tough it out & do NOTHING ELSE, instead.
G. I DON'T HAVE TRIGGERS to eat unnecessarily.
H. I AVOID engaging in that activity (such as watching TV).
I. I exercise WHILE I'm doing that activity.
J. I exercise INSTEAD of engaging in that activity.
K. I go ride my HORSE. (Maybe his name is TRIGGER?)
L. I do some COMBINATION of the above.
M. I do something else NOT LISTED here.
*Yes, I know, even sugarless gum has some calories, but that's not the point of this option. The point is that you are CHEWING on something.
I'd love to see the %s tallied by SP for the answers you all choose for this question! A pie chart would be fun.
