I have 2 bad habits, eating when I am angry or bummed out and not getting enough water in. I decided to fix them by flipping the switch. When I want to run to junk food or just stuff my face because I am upset about something I fill a big (24 oz.) water bottle with water and lemon juice and a little stevia. Then I guzzle the whole thing. I am now too full to eat and my head is in a better place. It really seems to help, who knew?

I find that drinking a glass of water helps curtail my appetite. Since I am an emotional eater, water saves me from overeating, because it helps my stomach to feel full. Also, chewing gum helps me to "pretend" that I am eating, because it keeps my digestive juices flowing. 334
