Tips for fighting the urge to eat

So you are done eating your meal, and you still feel hungry.  Thankfully there are some things you can do do fight the urge to eat.  Here are some of my tips:

  1. Chew sugar free gum
  2. Have a tick-tack or a mint (but sugar free gum is better)
  3. Brush your teeth when done eating.  This will send a signal to your brain that you are done eating
  4. Drink water.  Drink lots of water.  It will fill your stomach.
  5. If you must, eat free foods such as vegetables or pickles
  6. Treat yourself after dinner to a treat (sugar free jello or pudding)
  7. Find something else to do during your weak moments (like go for an extra run, play a game with your kids, go for a walk, go outside, go to the park, go to the library)
