Stave Off Cravings


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Stave off junk food cravings by carrying hard candies in your pocket. Right now I'm using maple syrup candies because they are difficult to chew on (and 3 candies = 70 calories). Its also a great mind game - you can convince yourself you are still eating foods that "aren't allowed!"

    Chewing gum also helps curb your hunger, or at least gets your mind off of it for awhile

    I buy a bag of butterscotch hard candy from Wal-Mart ($1.00 a bag)
and they are 60 calories for 3 pieces.
I eat them at work
