Out of sight, out of mind

Snacking is something you may be struggling with.  Now that you are constantly in the same place (most likely your home) without the option to really go out, snacking could be something you are having trouble with.  

Or just in general eating things you might not normally eat because it's not an option all day! Maybe it's snacks you have for your kids, or even deserts that maybe you’d have every once in a while but since it's there...and you are also…you find yourself indulging more often.  Here are some simple ways to set yourself up to stay away from it.

  • Don't buy it 

  • Have more supportive food options prepared.  It's easier to snack if there isn't a more supportive option available.

  • If you are going to have some, plan it.

  • Put it away, in a cupboard, a closet, etc.  If its easily accessible (candy in a candy dish) you are way more likely to grab it multiple times a day.

  • Put it up or down a set of stairs. 

  • Put it in a closet or something similar across the house. 

  • Make it a pain to get to.

  • Drink a glass of water before eating.

These are just a couple of any number of ways you can set yourself up for success.  The idea is to make it as difficult as possible to get to the option.
