After a meal or especially just before sitting down on the couch to watch TV...I brush my teeth. The fresh cool breath left from clean teeth helps to cut the cravings or the opportunity to want to eat. Rule engraved since childhood: not permitted to eat after you brush your teeth at night. You trick your mind and your stomach!334
This can also help you drink more water because it taste cooler or more refreshing!
Keep your television in a separate room... Add special items to make it more luxurious. This can help to make it a food free zone. Water ONLY permitted please!
I used to love to inhale a bag of popcorn every night. I found the secret to success for me was to brush my teeth whenever I felt like grabbing that bag and tossing it in the microwave. The taste of toothpaste in my mouth, and the feeling of clean teeth, made it easy for me to forget the popcorn or any other snack. I have lost 80 pounds!
