"Binge" on something healthy. If you have not gotten all of your fruits and veggies in yet, grab and apple or steam some broccoli. If you are low on protein for the day, have some peanut butter. Make some air popped popcorn. If you really want to stay away from food, try a hot or iced cup of herbal tea. Peppermint tea dazzles the taste buds and I *think* it is an appetite suppressant. You can also drink camomile which can help you sleep. If you wake up congested or sneeze while drinking it, be aware that camomile tea is in the ragweed family. If you are REALLY hungry, and want something good for you, I will go for an 8 ounce glass of milk.
I was jonesing for a Snickers bar really badly for two days. It is my favorite candy bar. I thought it would go away if I didn't give in. Finally I couldn't take it anymore so I bought one at CVS. I've not had a Snickers in many, many, many months. It tasted like total CRAP. I took one bite and threw the rest away. If I am going to binge, I'm going to be a snob about it and go for the good, dark chocolates and limit my portions to it to half a serving.

My mom, in her 90's and still going strong, brushes her teeth and won't eat anything after that. That seems to work for her. I figure in a snack that I really want in my food log and look forward to it all day. Once I eat that ~ I'm done as I feel that I have treated myself and I don't want to undo what I've accomplished that day. I don't always get to my exercise and I don't want to be uncomfortable in the heat of summer and that in itself helps me also. Jean
