Breaking the Habit of Snacking: 5 Things to Do Today


Snacking has physical drivers, but there is also a subconscious element, meaning we often snack not out of need but out of habit. Habits can present challenges when you are trying to clean up your diet.

For instance, if you are in the habit of having an afternoon snack as you work at your computer, you can make the conscious decision to stop, but you’ll need to deal with those habitual thoughts, saying, “Ooh, a snack would be great right now.” In this video, you’ll learn five things you can do today to break the habit of snacking.

  • Once you switch to diet soda, you can then begin going half-and-half with seltzer water and little by little switch to seltzer water

  • I found eating until comfortably stuffed to be extremely effective for hunger. For habits or cravings, I cut off a little piece of steak, or boiled and egg and went ahead and ate it, but made myself clean up everything and put it away when done. Over a few weeks, it eventually was just silly to me to go through all that work for a small snack. I actually told the family they could bring anything they want and used their poor food as a gauge of where I was at. When I no longer cared that chocolate and ice cream was in the house, I knew I was there. Won’t lie, it took well over a year, but is very much worth it when you get there. Good Luck!

    PS, I do believe everyone will need some will power, but actively working toward a goal shortens the time you need to do it all mentally.

  • I work where we sell snacks. I bring my own but don’t fight the urge to have one every now and then. I also walk around the store to get up and moving. I drink soda once in a great while I don’t eat junk food, but I do have a tendency to over eat on the healthy food and think it’s ok. I have to push back my last foods time from 8 to maybe 7 at night with lighter meals leading up, because of Thanksgiving I have reset. Yes I will blame it on that. Lol.
