Triumph over Snack Attacks
By: Lynn Grieger
We all face snack attacks: after work when the kids are hungry and we're frazzled from a
hectic day; late in the evening while watching TV; on lazy weekend afternoons. We can
control snack attacks with three easy steps:
Be prepared. Make sure you have healthier snacks on hand, and keep cookies and other
high-fat, high-sugar treats hidden from sight in the back of the cupboard and refrigerator.
Use the food pyramid to fill in the gaps. If breakfast was cereal and toast, perhaps a
midmorning snack could consist of fruit, yogurt or string cheese -- all items missing from
breakfast. If you use this tactic, you won't be as easily tempted to choose high-calorie
snacks, and you'll improve your nutritional intake at the same time.
Choose a satisfying snack. Do you want something salty? Sweet? Cold? If we can understand
what type of flavor or texture we want, we're more likely to be satisfied sooner rather than
later, after we've rummaged through the cupboards. Here are some ideas for healthy snacks:
To satisfy your sweet tooth:
Fresh or dried fruit
A frozen fruit-based sweet or other frozen treat
Frozen grapes or berries
Low-fat yogurts in exotic flavors: cappuccino, banana cream pie and even chocolate mint
If you're looking for something crunchy:
Plain, reduced-fat microwave popcorn. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese for extra flavor.
Pretzels and low-fat crackers made with whole grains.
Bagel or tortilla chips. Make your own: Cut tortillas into pie-shaped wedges and slice bagels
thinly. Place on a cookie sheet in a single layer, and bake in a 400-degree oven until toasted
Baby carrots, celery sticks and jicama slices. Keep them ready to eat in the refrigerator.

Low-fat string cheese or cubes of other reduced-fat cheese.
A hard-boiled egg.
Rolled-up slices of low-fat turkey or ham.
A hearty lentil or black bean salad for fiber and protein: simply mix rinsed and drained canned legumes
with your favorite fat-free salad dressing.
If you'd rather sip your snack:
Blender drinks: Mix any combination of skim milk, yogurt, fruit juice and fruit in a blender.
Caffeine-free flavored teas.
We often mistake thirst for hunger: Try calorie-free flavored waters, or add your own flavor to sparkling
water with a twist of lemon or lime, or even add fresh cranberries.
Sugar-free hot chocolate made with skim milk: It not only satisfies your sweet tooth, it adds essential
calcium and vitamin D to your diet.
Bag a healthy snack:
Pretzels or plain popcorn in individual bags.
Cereal or granola bars that contain added calcium.
Reduced-fat or baked potato chips.
Snack in a bag: Mix your favorite types of dry cereal, and add a handful of raisins and a sprinkling of
roasted nuts.. source
How to Fight the Urge to Snack
A mouthful of chocolate candy, a sliver of cake, a chunk of cheese...give into those insistent
urges, and before you know it, you've eaten everything but the kitchen sink. Even worse, those
little urges can also add up to a large weight gain. For example, if you take in just 100 extra
calories per day -- that's one ounce of rich cheese or a fistful of potato chips -- you can put on
ten pounds in one year.
So, when the urge to eat strikes, stop and ask yourself if you're really hungry. If not, then
you're merely eating out of habit, and the urge will usually pass if you can wait it out.
Overcoming the eating urge can be compared to riding a bucking bronco. You can fight the
horse and be thrown or maintain your balance and "ride" the horse until it settles down. Being
a good "urge rider" involves identifying your urges early and using skills to ride them through.
One skill to "ride out" your urges is to distract yourself for at least ten minutes with an activity
that is incompatible with eating. The goal is to "buy time" and choose an activity that meets
several criteria: It must involve you, be readily available, and give you pleasure or fill you with a
sense of accomplishment. Here are some activity suggestions to get you started, but it's
important to create your own list of personalized options:
Call a friend (don't use the phone in the kitchen)
Chew a wad of sugarless gum
Brush your teeth
Take a shower
Paint your nails
Water your plants
Ride your exercise bike
Organize your closet
Meditate, pray, or think pleasant thoughts (but not about food)
File papers or balance your checkbook
Grab your mate, not your plate
Work on a crossword puzzle or a jigsaw puzzle
Do not use television as your alternate activity. Studies show that obesity is almost twice as common in
people who watch three to four hours of television daily as in those who watch less than one hour. This
fatty connection may be due to the decrease in activity and the mindless snacking that tends to go hand in
hand with watching television. If you watch four hours of television every day, that adds up to 1,460 hours
each year. Just think of all the useful or enjoyable things you could do with those hours-or all the calories
you could burn through more physical activities -- instead.
Another way to ride out your urges is to change your environment. If you're alone, visit a friend (who won't
offer you food.) If you're working overtime, take "seventh-inning stretches" in hallways. If you're in the
kitchen, go to the bedroom or living room with a good book. Once you leave the environment, especially if
it contained food, your desire to eat will eventually weaken.
When you just can't resist an urge to eat, simply satisfy it with a low-calorie food or beverage. This is easy
to do if you have an emergency stash of low-calorie items on hand, such as fresh vegetables, fruit, diet
soda, and air-popped popcorn.
Finally, ask yourself if your urges are simply a sign of fatigue. Many people feel like eating when they are
tired, run-down, or sick. Once you recognize when you're tired, you can take a time-out and give your
body what it really wants -- a little break. And don't feel guilty taking the extra time. If you ride out urges
productively, you'll be surprised at the free time you have that once was filled with mindless eating.
As your losing weight, or even before you begin, you should set up realistic goals for yourself to stay
motivated. We will show you how in the next section.

The best way to avoid disappointment is to learn how to set goals you can attain. When learning this skill,
there are two common pitfalls most dieters encounter: Insistent Imperative Syndrome and Mount Everest
Syndrome. By knowing these pitfalls, you can be prepared to sidestep them.
Insistent Imperative Syndrome
Many dieters have goals filled with imperative words that leave no room for error and imply demand, such
as "always," "never," "every," and "must." Despite what many of us like to think, nobody's perfect. So every
time you vow never to touch a doughnut again or swear that you'll lose weight every week or promise that
you'll always control your eating -- you're setting yourself up to fail by insisting on perfection. To make
matters worse, if you violate your own rigid standards, you will be disappointed in yourself and may eat
even more because you feel so frustrated.
Remember that to err is human -- everyone has setbacks. So, strike imperatives from your vocabulary. If
you bring your standards in line with reality, you'll be regularly rewarded instead of frustrated.
Mount Everest Syndrome
The second trap dieters fall into is creating goals that are way too high, or as out of reach as the top of
Mount Everest -- "I have to lose 50 pounds" or "I'm going to walk ten miles." Giant goals like these are
overwhelming because of the size of the job and the time it will take to do it. Even worse, this type of
thinking can lead to despair because it sets up success as an endpoint that happens only when the goal is
achieved rather than as a continuing process.
Granted, your goals should be challenging, but giant goals are an invitation to failure. That's why it's so
important to break goals down into smaller tasks that you can accomplish one day or one week at a time
so you won't feel defeated before you start.
Steps for Setting Goals
Goals are important because they help you focus your time and energy on the areas that count. To set
yourself up to succeed, your goals should be:
Short term and specific. Specify exactly what you plan to do by tomorrow or next week. Say "I'm going to
walk 25 minutes after dinner every evening this week," rather than "I'm going to exercise."
Trackable. Use a diary to track your progress in a visible way.
Positive. Say "I will" rather than "I won't." Negative goals make you feel deprived instead of making you feel
good about your successes.
Personal. Don't try to lose weight to please or impress others. Learn to be the center of your own life.
Rewarding. Recognize each small victory. They are your building blocks for long-term success.
Realistic. In order to achieve long-term success, you have to find goals you can live with and incorporate
into your daily schedule. Here are some examples of unrealistic goals that can sabotage your weight-loss
efforts, as well as sample realistic goals that can fuel your weight-loss efforts.
