I think most of us face challenges at common times when it comes to eating. My biggest challenge is when I am slowing down for the day or bored, maybe looking for something to keep me busy…. “STOP!”

Grab a book or a little bean bag to toss up and down…something. Keep your mind off of food!

All the hard work during the day, and over a couple of hours prior to bed I take a few steps back.

Try this:

This has helped me in my nightly battle to avoid binging. I put a timed imaginary lock on the fridge and/or cupboards (7pm they lock). I have been practicing this and it tends to get easier to stay away each night. If you must…. try some milk or if you are craving sugar a glass of chocolate milk.

Good luck!
Remember you are in control!
