HALT... (a MENTAL exercise)  

Sometimes we eat because we aren’t hungry
Here is an acronym to think about if we aren’t sure and want to double check.
It’s called HALT!!!

H       Hungry….am I truly hungry?

A      Angry/agitated…..am I feeling this?

L       Lonely or bored?....am I feeling this way? 

T       Tired?     Am I eating just because I’m tired….?

Try to catch yourself if you are eating for any other reason than being truly hungry.   Distract yourself for 5-10 minutes with a small project and see if it goes away.
Some Ideas:
Brush your teeth
Go to bed (if you are tired and it’s late)
Send some emails
Clean a drawer, organize your desk
Fold laundry (can’t eat Doritos and fold laundry!)
Put on nail polish
Go thru the sale papers
Vacuum
Go outside, walk
Get out of house
Read a book or article in a magazine
Repot a plant
