31 Ways to Eat and Slim #30

30) ID what's eating you.

Basically this tip is about emotional eating. Self says tension is one of the most oft-cited reasons people overeat. Scarfing down a bunch of cookies doesn't get rid of the problem and now you've just scarfed down a bunch of cookies. Make a list of three things you can do when something pushes your limit and if needed stick the list on the cookie jar.

My skinny - Emotional eating isn't only with tension. Some people overeat when they are sad, we've all seen the chick flicks with the sad chick with the Ben and Jerrys. However, it can just be plain boredom. You're sitting there watching tv and bored and so you go to the fridge, freezer, whatever and EAT. So just like Self's tip find something to busy yourself when you know you aren't hungry and you are reaching for food.
