I had so many people share that they loved the 101 Kick Ass Things To Do Instead of Eating: Get The Flat Belly You Deserve! book, I decided to write a sequel; 101 MORE Kick Ass Things To Do Instead Of Eating: Get The Flat Belly You Deserve! This book like the first is jam packed with ideas. I love having these. When I get that urge to eat mindlessly, I just thumb through the book and pick something else to do.
This book has 101 MORE ideas, some crafty, some pampering. Here are a couple favorites…
1. Apply lip gloss. Carmex is one of my top choices. I buy it in bulk at Amazon. I keep a tube in my purse, at my desk, next to my living room chair etc. You got it! Carmex .25 Oz Jars Lip Balm (Box of 12) This is one of my very favorite things to do instead of nibbling.
2. Smell Scents. A lot of our pleasure from food comes from the aroma. The aromatic smell of chocolate chip cookies in the oven can really increase your appetite for example. And sometimes just smelling fragrances can curb your appetite. Peppermint, cinnamon and vanilla have all been linked to a decrease in food consumption. You can try smelling essential oils and see if it works for you;Essential Oil- Beginners Best of the Best Aromatherapy Gift Set- (100% Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils) I personally find the smell of grapefruit to be a nice substitute for mindless eating.
3. Color Your World. In the book, I suggest painting, but coloring is great too. Coloring can be so relaxing. You can pick up a pack of crayons on the cheap and kids coloring books. Or take it to a new level and color fanciful stained glass or intricate patterns. There are even coloring books designed to reduce stress and enhance mood like this one for ages 9-109; Angels: Meditative Coloring Book 1: Adult Coloring for relaxation, stress reduction, meditation, spiritual connection, prayer, centering, healing, and coming into your deep true self
Just simple activities can really refocus your mind set away from food!
