Who Knew?

Yes, that's me, and no I don't have hydrophobia but I did make a startling discovery.

I tend to graze at night. I know I shouldn't, and I tell myself I won't and I've been very good about either having a cup of hot tea when I've got the munchies, or sugar free jello with a dollop of fat free Cool Whip. However, the desire is always there and it takes all my "won't power" not to give in to the temptation.

I am not a person who can do moderation. I'm either all in or not at all. Usually a small portion of whatever I'm craving turns into a bigger portion and the next thing I know it's all gone. (except for the lingering evidence of my dietary indiscretions that are forever on my hips and backside!)

I have discovered that if I brush my teeth after my cuppa tea at night it seems to signal my brain that the mouth has shut down for business till morning. If I do eat something after brushing my teeth it never taste good so why bother. It's so simple , yet it seems to work for me.....Who Knew?

Daisy Dilemma: What "tricks" have you discovered that help you from over eating?


For me it's pretty simple... I keep the 64 oz. water bottle beside me at all times.

I have noticed that when I DIET I do need to snack though, (when I'm not dieting I eat enough so I am FULL when I leave the table, and thus have never been a snacker) so I just make sure to keep about 100 calories set aside for something before I go to bed. That seems to do it for me.
