I'm not any help because I have the same problem!

Also, another ECSD teacher here - I always have a snack for after the kids leave, but I still want to eat when I get home, anyway. I try to keep hard candy around to help keep my mouth busy.

I'm a teacher in ECSD too. The afternoons are my weakness, not night like most people. So, I take a snack to school and have it right before I leave as I check my emails and review my lesson plans for the next day. Gives me a little wind down time from work and helps with the snack attack at home. emoticon

I have learned that I must love myself where I am at rather than some unattainable concept placed in my head by distorted media social norms. And guess what? I kinda like who I am.

I really love working out in the mornings, but unfortunately it hardly ever happens. So instead, I always try to schedule that afternoon munchie time as a workout time. It works to keep me busy and the munchies at bay. If I don't go workout, I try to find healthy alternatives. It is best to just avoid having anything in your home that tempts you or is your weakness. Instead find sometime healthy, two or three things really, and keep those handy for that afternoon snack attack time.

Good Luck!

I have a snack...usually 2 wasa fiber crackers and smart balance peanut butter and a banana...at about 3 pm. Then I go to the gym for a couple of hours after work. By the time I get home and shower...it's dinner time. I know your situation is different because you teach. I would suggest you plan a healthy snack for when you get home.

Hey guys!!

Since jumping back on the spark wagon, the one hurdle I'm really struggling with is the afternoon munchies. Everyday at around 4PM, which is about the time I get home from school, I start craving anything BAD! Then I just feel heavy the rest of the day, and usually end up eating dinner really really late.

What do you do to get past the afternoon snack attack?
