Drink a glass of water – regardless of your thirst level.

If you’re still hungry 10 minutes later, get a small snack (but put it in a separate bowl/container – don’t take all of it with you!)

Hot herbal tea can help too- I tend to go glass of water, mug of tea and by then if I’m still hungery it’s usually dinner time.Laughing

I’ve found that exercizing is a good way of reducing my appetite. Even simple things like lifting free weights can help. 🙂

Idk if there’s any science behind this, but when I’m hungry and don’t want to snack, I eat 2 large olives or a pickle. Something about the super saltiness seems to curb my craving!

Try reading the “Bathroom Etiquette Rant” thread, which describes some of the um… unfortunate waste-disposal habits in the workplace.  It definitely made me lose my appetite! Wink

In all seriousness, though, if I want to put the kibosh on mindless snacking, I go brush my teeth.  Then my mouth will be all clean and minty, and I won’t want to eat anything.

Working out definitely. I lose any hunger I have after 30 min of cardio.

  If I can convince someone, I’ll play a card game, or else even a video game. It’s hard to eat when you’re using your hands! If I have them, I will eat a Jolly Rancher. I also agree with the exercising idea!

Well, if I have no self-control, like tonight, I eat half a box of Triscuits Undecided

I agree with PPs, though, water helps a lot.  Also, if you’re still feeling hungry, you can snack on veggies.  I like to keep carrots, celery, cucumbers, and peppers sliced in the fridge because they’ll fill me up for a little bit, but have hardly any calories (and they’re good for you!).

I agree with PP who said drink water.  I know for me, even if I feel hungry, I’m not actually hungry, and just ingesting something (i.e. the water) makes me feel better.  But you should also look at what you are eating throughout the day.  Are they filling foods?  Are you getting enough protein and fiber?  If not, your body might actually be telling you that it needs more nutrients.  Also, taking a good daily vitamin can minimize food cravings because your body will have already gotten the vitamins it needs.

Basically, if your body isn’t getting the fuel it needs then you will feel hungry (even if you just ate) since your body wants more nutrients.

Whenever I stay home from work or work from home I eat soo much, just because it’s something to do and it keeps my busy. My solution is to do something that gets me off the couch, if I stay on the couch I know I’ll be eating sooner or later…

I definitely agree with pp’s about drinking more water and exercising to curb hunger. The times when veggies won’t cut it, I find beef jerky really satiates me.  I buy the big bags and immediately transfer the jerky into one-once servings in individual ziplock bags. One ounce has like 90 calories, and the salt, protein, and chewiness make me feel like I’ve had something.

If you get bored of drinking water you could try those flavored powders that you can mix in that don’t have any calories. That will change up your drinks. 

I also agree with the PP about eating pickles. They have very few calories so eating a few of those is always a good snack.

I make myself a sandwich or have some hummus.
