There was a song from winnie the pooh that I just remembered-- Mind over matter will make the pooh unfatter.
For the most part you are NOT hungry-- you are BORED. Find something to do. Drink some water first. If the water does not take away the hunger than eat a little something.
Play games-- I can have the cookie after I get this load in the washer or finish the dishes or make my bed. I usually don't remember that I wanted the food after i finish the task.
maybe take yourself for a walk. call a friend on the phone.
I agree that the snacks in the house should be healthy-- carrots, celery, maybe some nuts (these are my downfall), grapes, orange, etc. clean out the chips, pretzels and other snacks until you have better control
I had a friend that would "close" her kitchen. After dinner she would do the dishes. Then she would leave the kitchen and turn the light off. it was her way of saying that the cafe was closed and would not open until the morning.
