Maybe a cup of chamomile tea an hour after dinner? For some reason this seems to work for me.
I tried this on Sunday evening and it cut my snacking down to a solitary fig newton: by contrast, a week ago my evening snack was a fairly large chocolate cookie and a bowl of ice cream.
I also tried your suggestion an hour after today’s lunch. It took a second cup but I survived the afternoon with zero snacking.
Now I just need to remember to bring in some non-caffeinated tea bags to work tomorrow—still up past my bed time due to this afternoon’s double dose of caffeine.
I haven’t been able to get in much walking the past couple days (my leg isn’t cooperating much), but I still lost an additional pound over the past couple days. So kudos again for the helpful suggestion.
