I try to always have Special K and bananas, so I can go to that when I don't feel like cooking. Special K is crunchy fun to chew on for not many calories, and the banana is filling and has vitamins, then pour on a bit of soymilk. Sometimes I spike it with a few tablespoons of a more fun cereal, Kashi Berry Blast ... it's high in calories and too sweet anyway to eat a full bowl of that. So easy and nothing to feel guilty about!

The sitting down is a hard habit to break, I need to work on it, too!

If you don't like the road you're walking, start paving another one!

that's what i've been doing now that i'm home alone with livy. i don't really have enough uninterrupted time to make something when i'm hungry, so i make my meals and snacks ahead of time the night before. it isn't much different from packing a breakfast and lunch for work, which i used to do anyway, and it keeps my eating on track.

another trick is to cut up a bunch of veggies and then have them in a tupperware in the fridge for easy grazing. it'll still take effort, but all at once which seems more efficient.

Could you maybe make things ahead of time? Like after you go grocery shopping put together little meals that you can just pop in the oven/microwave. It'll take a little time initially, but then that way you have nutrient-rich, healthy meals that aren't too much trouble to make when you're hungry and want something right then and there.

When you are kind of hungry, but don't want to actually MAKE any food. This is my biggest problem (and probably why I need more calories). I'm a constant grazer. Handful of popcorn here, some soybeans there, shrimp, leftovers (but just a bite or two), I'm a mess. I don't really sit DOWN and eat (bad bad habit) because I get full fast and there are other things I could be doing. Like being on the computer or reading or knitting. Any suggestions?
