I think we can all agree that no tip will work for everyone in every situation. I understand it is disappointing when we try tips and they don't work for us, but that can still be a positive thing: checking off something that doesn't work from the list and trying something else. And I agree with many commenters that this article does not address the binge eating disorder.
I personally like the idea of using tiny forks, spoons, and bowls for the scheduled treat. When I have rich, chocolatey treats in a bowl, I use a tiny shrimp fork or a baby spoon... not the bulky plastic ones they sell now, but a delicate stainless steel spoon with a long, slender handle. This works for me. I can't say it will work for others. However, I have a mental-emotional-etc attachment to chocolate. I am not giving it up, so I found a way to make peace with my chocolate attachment. I value quality of life over longevity.
The first tip is also helpful for me... putting my portion on my plate instead of eating from a container.
