Brush Brush Brush!

This Sparked Me!

If I am at home and feel like snacking... I go and brush my teeth. Most food tastes terrible over toothpaste, and it makes me stop long enough to question if I REALLY want that snack :o)

    Yes, that's what I do too! Cause I realized that I crave sweets after I eat something garlicy - If I brush, then the craving goes away.
This is also a good rule to use when I go to a party. After one plate of food and I feel I'm full, I go and brush my teeth, and then don't feel like eating or picking at random food anymore.
