How to Stop the Snack Attack in Its Tracks: You Need to do Any of These Things Instead ...

Are you guilty of mindless eating? It's so easy when you're bored or simply doing something that requires little concentration (like watching TV) to reach for a snack. There are many reasons for reaching for something that tastes yummy but isn't very good for your body, and all of us have different triggers. Mostly though, the result is the same - guilt, regret and potentially, weight gain. The next time you're tempted to reach for the bag of chips or a candy bar, do any of these things instead:
