If you are tempted to overeat, LEAVE THE KITCHEN! Simply get out of the kitchen or leave the house if the temptation is too great. And whatever you do, don’t go back in the kitchen for at least 30 minutes!
You can also do physical exercise, or do something constructive. Not only do you shift away from what you don’t want, but also you do something so positive and get the body so involved that you can’t help but feel better – and lose the desire to overeat! So when you are tempted to overeat, go for a walk, work out at home or the gym, garden, ride a bike, mall-walk or tackle that overstuffed closet upstairs!
