Unformatted text preview: Strategies on Snacking Eat "mini-meals" instead of snacks that include some protein. I keep plenty of fresh fruit with me and I always eat some before I leave to go anywhere. This way I am full and I am not tempt I put all snacks on the ledge outside my office. That way, its more difficult for me to get to them and everyone else will eat them Have an extra piece of fruit in the lunch I bring to work, and eat it in the car on the drive home, which helps to reduce the urge If I really must have potato chips, I will take six or eight out of the bag, close and seal the bag, and then eat my smaller portion Don't buy it :-) I can't eat what's not there, and it's not worth a walk to the supermarket.
