10 Quick Tips: How to minimise snacking

Out of sight out of mind – keep unhealthy snacks right at the back of a cupboard

Plan your daily snacks – don’t snack on impulse

• If your other family members want snacks – buy ones that they like and you don’t like

Don’t eat from the packet – arrange your snack nicely on a plate

• Don’t walk into a supermarket unless you have a shopping list

• Don’t do your food shopping on an empty stomach

• Find a hobby that keeps your fingers busy – some kind of sewing or craft

• Keep a bag of satsumas or clementines in the house or your workplace – then you never have an excuse for an unhealthy snack

Take food from home to work each day so you don’t have to visit the shops at lunchtime

Try not to choose sugary snacks – they are more likely to make you want more and more snacks, and they are bad for your teeth

    Great post! I agree with the point you made about which snacks you should eat, and when. One thing I’ve found to be extremely helpful and useful as a supplement to my current diet/exercise plan is Fullbar (www.fullbar.com). Their gummies and bars help curve my hunger, help me with portion control and keep me from consuming more calories than I really need.
