Find a way to keep your hands busy to stop you reaching for a snack - a wordsearch or other puzzle book or a jigsaw for instance.
I don't bother jj, I enjoy my food too much!
Or chew strong gum...the mint flavour will make anything else taste nasty.
I only wish I knew the answer to your question jj. I suffer from the same problem.
Replace with wine....... :)
Read a book, do a puzzle of some sort, take your dog for a walk.
I sympathise J J, it is difficult. I've gone down the jigsaw route mentioned, and also taken to chewing gum again, but it's still difficult.

This, to me, is what nothing else to do means.

And I'm bloody sick of digitilisationionion - kindle, Alexis, Sky, Freeview - jesus - only so much of TV I can watch and now I'm wondering what is wrong with my eyes - I looked at the mirror tonight and they are square instead of round. I'll have to make an appointment with Mr Specsavers.
I said to my friend, put a child lock on your fridge. Them couple of seconds could be the difference of snacking or not.

I have a child lock on mine, the amount of times I've went to open it and the fact it's locked makes me walk away. You're not hungry, you're bored. Take Maxi o
I can vouch for one of those Tony and it's not the weight gain.
