See Food, Must Eat! How to Avoid Food Triggers and Stop Mindless Eating
The Morning MeetingSurprise! There are doughnuts at a morning meeting.
Freeze! Ask yourself if you're truly hungry -- or are you just not full, advises Tom Kersting, author of Losing Weight When Diets Fail and a psychotherapist in Westwood, New Jersey. "Many people get confused by this distinction, but you should eat only because you're hungry -- not because you aren't full." In other words, if you've already eaten breakfast, you don't really need that chocolate cruller. Sit so you can't see it or so it's as far as possible from you. If your stomach is empty, go ahead and eat the doughnut (but still sit away from the box). It's not the greatest way to start the day, but neither is a meeting.
