SATURDAY: Doing Chores at Home

"When you're home, your day has less structure and it's a quick trip to the kitchen," Beck says. "Eating is how we deal with boredom as well as a way to procrastinate."

Serve here, eat there. Put your snack on a plate and take it to another room. Having to get up and walk to the kitchen to get more food interrupts mindless eating, Wansink says.

Snack smarter. Adding a bit of healthy fat to your favorite nosh will fill you up faster. Partial to pretzels? Eat a handful with a dollop of hummus or peanut butter, Lippert advises.

Make it a mini meal. Grazing when you're seriously hungry is counter-productive: You'll eat more calories than you realize and still not feel satisfied. Better to feed your growling stomach half a turkey sandwich on whole-grain bread and some carrots; it's the same amount of calories as a few bites of a protein bar (around 150) and much healthier, Beller says.

I found substituting healthier options works best for me. My girlfriends and I see how low calorie with our cocktails we can be, I found frozen yogurt with active cultures is awesome if I work it into my calorie plan.
