Stop Out of Control Snacking with this Quick and Easy Tool
Posted March 3, 2014on:
I am not sure what got into me, but something surely did. It all started with a little chocolate heart in a store checkout line. That led to macaroni and cheese (lots of it) and a giant piece of cake that made my stomach hurt. The next day, I found myself eating an entire bag of Trader Joe’s Cheetos. I felt out of control and disconnected from my true self.
What I needed was an intervention and I needed one quickly. That’s when I decided to just STOP. This little method really helps prevent over eating and unconscious snacking.
S – Stop what you are doing
T – Take a few deep breaths
O – Observe your body for real signs of hunger
P – Proceed with awareness
I am happy to report that I am back to my normal eating patterns even though my indulgences re-awakened the sugar craving monster. If this little eating adventure had a purpose it would make it easier to digest (pun intended), and that is why I am hoping sharing the STOP method will help some of you.
