    If it's during the day and you can, go out for a walk. It clears your head, and has the bonus of getting a wee bit of exercise rather than eating :)
    If it's late at night, get a good book, watch a good movie, or run yourself a nice relaxing bath :) Think about what motivates you, maybe have a wee look at a picture of what you don't want to be/ where you do want to be, and just try to focus on something rather than eating.
    Also, pop on here :) it's always full on encouragement and distraction.
    Good luck!!! x

    You could snack on some veg (like carrot sticks) if it's just the action of eating you're craving. Or go for a bath with a trashy magazine?

    I tend to need to do summit, rather than just watch TV or read, my attention wanders!
    Even if its just something like sorting my clothes for work the next day or filing my nails!
