I have found that the time of day WORST for me is at both 10am and at 3pm. I start craving carbs and my mind drifts to unhealthy snack of donuts and chips and I swear the vending machine makes a different humm in order to try and gain my attention. If I resist and instead chew a piece of gum right around these times, I get through the craving until my next meal.
Extra chocolate chip mint gum is excellent.
Pop in a piece of mint gum (or flavored if you like it but mint is the strongest) to stop all the finger licking and tasting while you're cooking and baking. You won't wanna ruin the taste of the gum by eating the food. My sister and I own a cake business on the side, it helps to avoid eatng all of the sweet stuff.
I always always always have gum with me and at my desk. If I start to want to snack, I pop in a piece. Usually I choose mint gum, but if I've got a sweet craving I'll use bubble gum flavor or Juicy Fruit.
