Use Mind Games to Conquer Cravings

Finding that you’re reaching for things to nosh on, not because you’re actually hungry, but because you’re bored? Whether it’s something salty and crunchy or sweet and creamy, Julie Upton, MS, RD, of Appetite For Health recommends having three go-to distracters for whenever a craving strikes, so you can get your mind off food and on something else. Have a great book at the ready on your ereader, have your iPod handy with your favorite songs, or take a peek at your favorite online shopping site. If you can distract yourself for 10 minutes, the craving often passes.
