Tip- Control Your Hunger Trick!

by Carman

Just remembered this little ‘trick’ today……

when you have the munchies (like I have lately), feeling hungry but it’s not quite time to eat again (like I have lately!) then grab some Extra sugar-free gum (or I also like the Eclipse gum- Polar ice flavor–talk about clear your sinus’s!!) and chew on that for a while instead of reaching for an unhealthy snack or too much fruit.  Also, drink a glass of ice water and you have now curbed your cravings, munchies,  & snackies off for a little while being able to keep in control of your calories and Points+!!

Happy chewin’!

About Carman

36 year old military wife of 18 years and stay at home mom to 4 incredible kids (3 girls ages 17, 11, 11 and our son is 6). After my 4th, and final baby, I decided I wanted to be more active, healthier, happier, and to be an example to my kids. I joined Weight Watchers and started using the Points Plus program to learn portion control, moderation, and develop healthier habits. I also used the dietSNAPS app to track my meals and it was such a life changer for me to literally *see* what I was putting in my body! Cyndi, Lexy and I created this blog to be accountability partners and that has been a huge key to this journey! I love to cook and I love converting my favorite recipes into a healthier version for my family to enjoy! I love the after effects of exercising :) I love challenging myself to fitness goals to change things up and in doing so I have run numerous 5K/10K's, several half marathons, one full 26.2 marathon, and a Tough Mudder. I love circuit training, weight training, and running sprints. My goal is to inspire others to take their health seriously, and to show how small changes can lead to big results.
