Five D’s to Avoid Mindless Eating

Do you find yourself eating when you’re not hungry? In this article, “Six Ways to Avoid Mindless Eating,” author Amanda Chan quotes registered dietitian Keri Gans, author of The Small Change Diet. To avoid mindless snacking, Gans suggests the Five D’s: delay, determine, distract, distance, and decide. Wait before you grab that bag of chips. Decide if you are in fact hungry. If not, distract yourself with something else (go for a walk?) or distance yourself from the tempting snack. As you start your day, think about and prepare your snacks and meals so you don’t find yourself starving and at the vending machine or fast-food window.
