Recently, hubby and I quit using tobacco products. Yay! We are using e-cigs, so we still get the nicotine, but in a safer format….and before someone starts warning about the propylene glycol being an ingredient in antifreeze, you need to look at what else it is used in and has been approved by the FDA.
I digress….I am here to talk about the munchies. Quitting tobacco has opened us both up to these insane, incredible desires for munching on any food available…healthy or not healthy. So we have had to arm ourselves with some tactics to defeat the munchies.
1. Get up and do something outside if the weather permits.
2. Clean house, vacuum, dust, sweep, etc.
3. Drink more water.
4. Take a drive somewhere.
5. Have low cal snacks available…carrot sticks, celery sticks, sugar free popcicles, watermelon cubes, cucumber slices, pickle spears, low cal fruit, etc.
6. Exercise a little more.
These are just some of the things we are attempting to do to keep the munchies at bay. And we still have not gone back to the tobacco.
