#16 is so true for me! I keep snacks - albeit mostly healthy snacks - in my office cabinet and drawer. They stay there forever because I just don't see them, so I rarely think about them. If I do get in my cabinet for something, I'll be craving that granola bar within minutes.

I am SO guilty of #5 and #16. I live in a dorm room, and I don't even have a table. I eat anywhere there is room! Oopsy, maybe I should designate my tv tray a "table". Also, for the same reasons, #16 is hard! I live in a tiny, tiny little space. And food is literally like 2 feet away from me Maybe I need to shove it towards the bottom of my dresser.

I'm definitely going to work on these! Thank you for posting! :)

No problem guys. If you don't already read Women's World, I strongly suggest it. It has so many great ideas. If I come across another one I will be sure to share it with y'all.

Interesting article - some of it is common sense (the dangers of being near candy bowls) but I'd never thought the "fat glasses" thing. I mostly drink water, but if I'm indulging in something else I will definitely keep that in mind

People tell me they like my profile picture because it makes them laugh

I say, "Thanks! Thats why it's there."

I got this article from my favorite magazine, Women's World. The author is Brian Wansink,Ph.D. and he is best known for his book, Mindless Eating. It has helped me stay motivated so much. Hope y'all can get as much out of this as I did...

MAKE 3 SIMPLE CHANGES AND LOSE 30 POUNDS
Do just 3 a month, and lose 30.
1.Always Leave A Bite Behind.
You'll quit using "all gone" as a cue to stop eating-smart since test subjects served from secretly refilled soup bowls felt no more satisfied than those who ate 73% less from normal bowls.
2.Serve Yourself a Single Portion.
"It's human nature to eat more when more is available". Proof: Folks ate an extra 173 calories of stale popcorn from big buckets than small ones.
3.Skip Sugary Soft Drinks.
Liquid calories don't activate the brain's appetite-control center,so it's easy to sip mindlessly.
4.Avoid Fat Glasses.
Tall, skinny glasses make it seem like we're getting more-so we take less and drink less. kids at a weight-loss camp poured 74% more into short, wide glasses;even bartenders poured 37% more.
5.Only Eat at the Table.
"There are fewer distractions, so you'll eat less than if you're sitting at your desk or on the couch."
6.Have Separate Cupboards.
If you don't see your husband's/wives's/children's high-cal snacks,you're less likely to want them!
7.Have Just Two Foods at Once.
People offered M&M's in 10 colors ate 40% more than those offered seven colors. "The more variety there is, the more we eat. Put a third item on your plate when you're done with the first two."
8.Make Trade-Offs.
Personalized rules let you have favorite treats without mindlessly overeating them. Some suggestions from Wansink:"I'll throw half my fries away before I sit down" or "I can only buy a dessert after I've finished my lunch."
9.Buy Slow Foods.
Studies show overweight folks are less likely to overeat foods like nuts in their shells, due to the work it takes to get to them.
10.Replace Your Bowls.
Even nutritionists that know better dished up more ice cream when given larger bowls. Try enjoying cereal, ice cream, and even chinese food from mugs.
11.Slow Down in Groups.
We tend to mimic the speed and portions of other diners, which can prompt us to eat 96% more than normal. Be the last person to start eating, and the last one to finish.
12.Cover Half the Plate with Veggies.
As long as you think your plate is as full today as it was yesterday, you'll be equally satisfied-regardless of the calories. Start with a heaping helping of low-cal veggies,then go easy on higher-cal fare.
13.Only Serve Veggies Family-Style.
"If you leave the serving bowl on the table, you'll eat 20% more. Leave serving dishes of high-cal foods on the counter top.
14.Buy family snacks You Don't Like.
Research shows we're more likely to overeat snack foods than any other food. Avoid stocking up on snack foods you like.
15.Keep Foods Simple.
When flavors are mixed, as in elaborate dishes, we eat more. Test subjects ate 100% more jelly beans from a multi-flavor tray then from one with beans sorted by flavor.
16.Keep Foods Out Of Sight Between Meals.
Secretaries ate 150% more chocolate kisses when candy bowls sat on their desks than when they were in a closed cabinet three steps away.
17.Don't Skimp On Protein.
Studies show it helps reduce our urges to eat.
18.Brown-Bag It.
"Even if you only do this three times a week, you win. It's better when you're in control of your own portions and variety."
19.Pick Small Packs.
People given large packages of pasta and sauce made-and ate-23% more than those given smaller ones. "Big packages send a message that it's okay to eat bigger amounts."
20.Wait To Clean Up.
Visual evidence helps us know when to stop. Students served chicken wings ate 28% less when bones were left on their tables. So clean up after you eat.
21.Switch to 8-inch Plates.
"The brain perceives six ounces of food on an eight-inch plate as a hearty portion but the same amount on a twelve-inch plate as skimpy."

Success Secret!!!
List the three changes you'll make this month at the top of a lined sheet of paper and list the days down the side. Each evening, check off the changes you've applied that day. It'll help keep you mindful until each small change becomes a habit.
