Distractions from hunger?
What do you do to stop yourself thinking about food? I read, play on the computer and come on this site. I NEVER use housework as a distraction unfortunately.
Has nobody any new ideas?
I find I don't need to be distracted from food because I'm on SW and you can eat lots of food in unlimited quantities. So if I'm hungry, I snack on fruit or low fat yogurt.
However, I also work 40-48 hours per week so often don't have time to worry about being hungry anyway!

Apparantly taking up knitting (or crochet) is very fashionable for slimmers who need a distraction from hunger. Maybe Maybe whilst listening to motivational slimming cd's on your ipod? Its very hard though to stop yourself whilst in the act of self-sabotage! Its amazing how my mind convinces me that I can start again tomorrow, trouble is tomorrow never comes!
i find reading helps me and coming on to the forum that helps to
new one said its going to be easy but you will love the end result xx
Nice long list there! I have to admit I have changed the habit of a lifetime and started doing a wee bit of clearing out. I also am addicted to weight loss TV programmes.
Drink water.... if I'm still hungry,I'll take a hint that I need to eat

All need squares and you might be tempted less because you have to wash your hands again.
I knit too but lately have been cross stitching more.
I agree with an early night too! It's hard to say no to people just to get to bed early but I'm getting better at it.
Before I started the hypnotic gastric band I never really knew what hunger felt like.. But on this new way of eating (refusing to call it the 'd' word)..lol..I find that I am full from the moment I have my 1 slice of toast in the morning, until about 5pm, when it is normally time for me to cook an evening meal... But I do take my pugs for walks whenever I feel the urge to snack, but its purely eating from bordem, rather than hunger.. x

I paint my nails - you can't eat while they are drying or they will smuge which my pet hate. By the time you've done a couple of coats in front of the tv or with music in the background the craving has dulled somewhat.
“We can do anything we want as long as we stick to it long enough.”~Helen Keller
If I have a craving I imagine it's actually a craving gremlin jumping up and down in my head shouting like a spoilt toddler who isn't getting his way. That way I can laugh at him and ignore him. If it's hunger pangs I try and drink water as I'm usually thirsty not hungry. And if it's emotional I just try and get out the house. Like today I was feeling really stressed so decided to go for a drive and sort some stuff out for the weekend (didn't actually work out but that's life).
I like the craving gremlin
Thank's. I got the idea off someone else on the S&S section who said they have a gremlin picture in their purse and on their fridge as he was the food gremlin. I adapted it for myself and hence the craving gremlin was born.
