I kind of hate that word. DIET. But it’s gonna get my point across, so I’ll run with it.
If you have a time of day that you are particularly prone to mindless snacking, a surefire way to put the kibosh on that, at least for a little bit (and maybe long enough for the craving to pass?) is to mop your kitchen floor.
At least with the way my floorplan is, when I mop my kitchen, I can’t get to either the fridge or the pantry until the floor dries. It’s a deterrent for sure.
I only wish I’d read this tip somewhere, instead of learning it firsthand when I mopped the floor, not at “snack time,” but right before everybody’s lunchtime.
