Tips to curb food cravings

  1. Eat breakfast everyday:  If you skip this meal you’ll be starving later in the day and are therefore more likely to pile on the calories with snacks and eat more at lunch or dinner.
  2. Practice portion control:  Buying a party-size bag of chips sets you up for overeating, so opt for one snack-size portion.
  3. Ride out your cravings:  They crest, then fade like a wave!  When the urge for chocolate hits, spend five to 10 minutes on a phone call or a quick walk to let your craving subside.
  4. Avoid food triggers:  If you know you won’t be able to resist the cookies in the cupboard, don’t buy them!
