fighting the cravings...

I am, what I like to call, a "bored muncher." Meaning, I get bored and because I have nothing else to do I magicaly become hungry and snack. Problem is, its never just a "snack." Or what some would consider a snack. It ends up being a bowl of ramen, or a sandwhich or looking down ad realizing I just ate a plate of nachos. (ok so 95% of the time its ramen) The point of this is I'm doing my best to fight these cravings by keeping myself busy. I have the hobby of knitting. So I am doing my best to knit my little heart out. I figure with as often as I get bored I should have the scarf I've been working on, and ignoring for the past year or so, finished by next month. (Or at least I can hope.) So one more thing to try and help myself. And yes I do realize sometimes the snaishness is not just boredom but real and if the hunger persists I have single serving packs of carrots now! Weeeee ^_^

I have the same problem. And the real problem for me is that keeping myself busy generally consists, at this point, of doing research for my thesis...which is boring as hell and therefore I get the uncontrollable urge to munch! I've been working out more and eating better, but I'm not losing any weight, and I think it's because of the munching.

I need to have more healthy snacks, like you do! Good luck!
