Let's say you just arrived home from a long day of stressful work and there is a gooey plate of chocolate chip cookies sitting on the counter. You are in a weakened state from the stress of the day and the time of day and those cookies are begging to be eaten. A stratedgy that has worked well for my clients is the following.1. Acknowledge that you really WANT the cookies. Acknowledge that you do not NEED the cookies to fuel your body.2. Tell yourself that you are going to have 1 cookie, but not right now, later.

I still remember the house that gave out full size candy bars! Halloween was always full of a little bit of candy, mystery and mischief.
