Sometimes when I want to snack and know I'm not really hungry, I make something low cal that takes time to make. Ex. I bake tortilla chips and make fresh salsa, drawing out the time, letting the oven preheat, etc. It prevents me from eating random snacks and builds up the snack, so I get more pleasure from it and delay myself which allows me to take a step back and realize I'm not truly hungry.

Pick something in your life that you aren't fond of - a bad habit. Commit to NOT doing it for ONE week or one time depending on the habit. I ALWAYS do popcorn at the movie. Like me? Go to one movie and take some fruit that'll last-cut up apple, orange-and some bottled water. You'll be so proud of yourself and you will realize taht these bad habits don't have the hold on you that you think they do. Keep going-skip the crackers and wine you have each weekend. You WILL surprise yourself!!!
