distract yourself? or stop stocking your fridge with junk food and replace it with healthy food. I like to buy green gaint's veggies and a whole box is either under 150 or around 150.
Curse my addiction to caramel
Curse my addiction to repetitiveness
Curse my addiction to cutting out those cute little paper snowflakes that are so easy and make your locker look so much nicer
well honestly i wouldn't buy them if i knew i was going to graze on them when i'm bored..
ok well then if you aren't willing to do something about it then you shouldn't complain....
the important thing is not to find any "bad" snacks in your fridge.
this way whatever you eat or invent is low in calories. I get snack cravings too but what I end up having is watermelon, kiwis, apricots, sometimes nuts and raisins. or just coffee or tea :)
chocolate covered katie has some unique..recipes. if you are looking for alternatives to your favorite food. i haven't tried any of them but i know alot of people that have and they swear on their life that they are the better then the real thing....lol
Get a job. Join a sport. Hang out with friends. DO SOMETHING BESIDES SIT AT HOME.
Haha... seriously, though. Its so good for you to get out there... I used to be a hermit and my life has improved tenfold since I started getting out of the house all day, every day (and half the night, lol.)
I had this same issue when I was at school (15 years ago now) but everyday i'd come home from school and the first thing i'd do is eat. It became such a routine that I started to feel hungry when I got home which then made it worse. Regardless of how much I ate at lunch.
My mum had to buy food especially for me and my brothers to snack on after school. They were never healthy of course. I didn't really put on weight at the time, but I guess if you don't shake those habits early you can carry them into later life.
In hindsight I should have done something to take my mind off food. Something I really enjoyed doing so that food didn't even enter my mind. It's definitely a psychological battle for me. There's been days where I've been so busy i've forgotten to have lunch and gone through a whole day without eating but on the flip side if i'm bored I can consume double my recommended calorie intake :)
If you can find something to do in that crucial time that you really enjoy doing, ti might help. Start up a little cash making enterprise perhaps and make a little money on the side. Or do a sport. Or do something out of the house where you can't snack. An after school sports team works well because your burning calories during the time you'd normally be taking them on. The n by the time you get home you'll have worked up an appetite for dinner. You'll have to find what works for you but those a few suggestions.
Side note: If you keep saying (and I quote) "But they're soooooo good!" then your obviously need to weigh your priorities. If you want to put on weight, keep making excuses like the one above and don't take people's advice, but if you want to lose weight, drop the junk food, stop making excuses, and do something besides sit at home!!!
Btw- hope that wasn't to harsh...
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
