Unusual Tricks to Try

  • After a meal or snack, try brushing your teeth or chewing some minty gum. Your taste buds will change, and help you put the breaks on any urge to eat more.
  • Wait about 15–20 minutes after a meal and assess how you feel before going for seconds. It takes some time for your brain to catch up to your stomach and send the message that you’re satisfied.
  • When a craving strikes and you know you are not physically hungry, call a friend, go for a walk, or do something else to get the craving out of your mind.
  • Get enough sleep each night. Sleep helps your body repair and reset. If you skimp on good quality sleep, your hormones will suffer, making it harder for you to stick with your eating plan.
  • Reward yourself when you accomplish even the smallest of fitness goals. Just be sure it’s not a food reward. Buy yourself a new book, take a long hot bath, or invest in smaller workout clothes.
