Get Rid of Trigger Foods, Pronto!

Make sure that you do not keep 'trigger foods' (foods that you can't stop eating once you start, usually due to some emotional upheaval). I used to allow myself graham crackers as a healthy snack (portion control). BUT, I found I would overeat them when depressed or upset... so I stopped buying them immediately. I may bring them back if I can gain control over myself.

Choose a favorite and say no to the rest

If you have a "trigger food" or binge item, one thing that helps me is to decide only to eat one type. I'll have a small serving of strawberry ice cream but say no to every other flavor or brand, just to keep from eating it except as a special "treat." Make a decision it is not worth it unless you have your choice - choose to say no otherwise.

Eliminate cravings for trigger foods

Hold tempting trigger food close to your face and smell deeply for 60 seconds. Your olfactory system will stop responding to the scent resulting in a decrease in the craving. Repeated over time the trigger will lose it's control.
