I find that if I let myself get too hungry, I start snacking while cooking. That is why I snack alot during the day on fruit and veg. and lemon water A piece of protein while snacking will also fill your tummy I love babybel cheese or laughing cow. A small container of 35 cal. yogurt is also very filling.

I really like the suggestion that you gave me. I have some Halls Mentol....sugar free. Thinking about this, I think that it will do the trick. Also, Most of the food that I have is very natural, not tons of flavor. I can uses spices, textures, and the Halls! Thanks.

Hi Smoothie and welcome. I eat healthy all day long but have trouble with nocturnal snacking (10pm-mindnight). Maybe you could try putting something in your mouth while you are cooking that will prevent you from wanting to taste everything. A strong, slow melting peppermint or even a cough drop might do the trick. The strong flavor will make just about everything you put in your mouth taste terrible.
Hiya SMOOTHIE1231 and welcome to the 50+ SparkTeam!
If I eat it, even a taste, it gets recorded on my nutrition tracker. So if I know I'm going to be snacky as I prepare a meal, I prepare snacks for myself and eat them instead of snacking on the food I am cooking.

Hi. I usually eat super healthy, but sometimes I just don't know when to stop. Being very short, the weight comes on very easily. I love avacado which is such a wonderful food, but high in calories. Also, I drink very healthy smoothies with almond milk, spinach, fruit, flax seed, hemp seed, and this can last me through the day. But by the time I cook dinner, although I don't feel hungry, I start picking and eating the pasta that I'm cooking for my hubbie. Then I have some cheese, then nuts.....well you get the picture. No weight loss. I thought that it might help to speak to others who eat very healthy but not all the time.
