Knitting! That's awesome,.. It can keep my hands busy when I am bored so I don't use boredom/stress as an exuse to snack:)

Knitting! I love it and I can't eat when I'm doing it or I'll get my yarn all gross.

Reading doesn't work for me personally because I tend to snack when I read.

Hi!!

One thing that helps me is writing about how I am feeling at the time I want to snack or binge. It distracts me and puts me in tune with the emotion I am feeling at that time. It is helping me identify the triggers!!

oh yea...i knew you were meaning replacing an unhealthy habit(addiction) with a healthy one....is there something that you'd rather do than most activites? i would say the computer but it's easy to eat and surf...i used to do it all the time...lol i think a good idea would be to figure out what your trouble times are and then find something that you can fit into those times....

Very true about what you said on using the word 'addiction',.. I really mean just something that I enjoy taking time out doing more than eating etc, something that I find fulfilling/fun enough to not feel like eating something afterwards,..

any of those sound good. i'm a christian so i'm trying to use that to replace my old addiction...it IS healthy after all! only thing is...i think that to use the word "addiction" for anything you use as a replacement/distraction is gonna put a negative spin on it.....

Are there any so called ' healthy addictions' that can replace or distract me from my food 'addiction'? Somewhere I can go to where I would usually turn to food for,.

So far, all I can think of is;
- Reading, if i can find a series I'm into, it's super hard to read and eat at the same time.
- Dancing, walking or some other form of exercise I find fun or relaxing
- Music - I never ever listen to music and eat at the same time, I have made that a habit (with the exception of my raw salads which always take me at least an hour to finish because of how long it takes me to chew all the leafy greens I put in)
- Scrapbooking, I used to really enjoy this, ..
