I have no doubt that I often eat when I’m bored.
In a similar way, I think many of us subconsciously look for something to do with our hands when we get a bit fidgety.
So too do I look to place food in my mouth just to keep myself occupied.
But, now that I’m aware of it, I try to ask myself a couple of questions before eating snacks:
a. How long ago did I last eat?
If only quite recently (less than 1/2 hour) then I try to give my body a chance to feel full. Even then, there’s probably no need to eat within an hour of two of your last meal as it takes about 4 hours for food to be digested.
b. Would I eat if it wasn’t so sweet or yummy?
If I’m not willing to eat boring food then I’m probably not hungry enough.
Over the past 10 weeks I have become more and more aware of this aspect of my diet.
It can be a mind-game at times. But I love playing games. So once the rules are clearly established then the challenge is on.
Now all I want to do is try to win.
Yet fair play and enjoyment of the game is even more important!
