Stuck at Home? How to Stop Snacking?
We are stuck at home more than usual with the current precautions due to the Coronavirus. All day grazing is an everyday affair. We are hearing it from folks and seeing memes on social media with waistlines increasing. My daughter Lily wants a snack about every hour or so. Now, she's a growing child and can handle those calories. But, most of us cannot and it's definitely not good for our health. You know, it doesn't have to be this way!
We have your back! One simple change you can make is to schedule eating times. Just create a basic general meal schedule and a snack time or two. This helps everyone in the house build awareness with their eating habits. Are we eating because we need food? Or, are we eating because we are just bored?
Keep it simple. Write the schedule down on a piece of paper and put it on the fridge. A blackboard is very useful too! Stick to the plan and be consistent. Trust me. Your body will thank you in the long run.
