Doing work-out´s and eating the right food are the best methods if you want to lose weight. No other methods really work in the long run :-(


These are great suggestions, very helpful. I especially like the idea of telling myself I can have whatever it is later, when it's planned for. I tend to have a "if it doesn't happen now, it won't happen" mentality that leads to lots of impulsive actions, including eating. (Every so often that mentality comes in handy, though.)

I ran the Army Ten-Miler this past weekend and it was great. I need to remember that usually I am stronger than I think I am.

Thanks for the great posts, Cindy!


Another trick (calorie-free!) is to brush your teeth as soon as you're done eating. Once I've gone through my whole brushing-flossing-mouthwash routine, the last thing I want to do is eat anything so I have to do it all again! Plus, think how happy your dentist will be ... ;)


I would like to recommend my solution for skipping eating when I am not hungry. I keep they big container (60 pieces) of gum around me at all times. Since I like sugarfree gum, two pieces is 5 calories. I eat one piece 2.5 calories. I find it works very well because if you are chewing gum, you can't eat or drink. Even if you spit out the gum, you now have a spearmint taste in the mouth and you know it will make the cookie/cake/candy taste weird. Therefore, you have to wait. By the time, you spit it out and wait for the taste to go away, the moment has past.
