“I’M BORED, I’M GONNA HAVE A SNACK”
Do you struggle with eating when you’re simply bored? I do!
I know it can be hard being stuck at home a majority of the time from this quarantine, and I’m sure the easiest way to curb your boredom is by snacking. So here’s some tips to help you avoid boredom eating!
1⃣ Track your macros. If you have a set number of protein, carbs, and fats to hit, simply don’t let yourself eat more! It sounds restrictive, but if you’re eating properly calculated macros, I’m sure you can eat plenty. So that extra snacking and binging isn’t necessary.
2⃣ Prelog your food at the beginning of the day and fit in any snacks or treats you want! The beauty of tracking macros is NOTHING is off limits. If you want to eat some Oreos after dinner, by all means do it! Fit them in and prelog them so you don’t get tempted to eat from boredom and finish off the entire package.
3⃣ Find things to do! Set a schedule for yourself. Workout. Clean the house. Work on your side hustle. Read a book. Listen to a podcast. Learn how to cook and meal prep. Now’s the time to do those relaxing or productive activities you don’t usually have time for!
4⃣ Don’t give up when you mess up. Maybe you’re doing great, haven’t eaten an entire bag of chips out of boredom for days. But then it hits, and you do. Don’t be too hard on yourself. Don’t throw in the towel and eat frozen pizza for your next meal instead of cooking a nourishing meal because you’ve already screwed up the day. MOVE ON and just make your next choice better. Giving up is the absolute only way you can fail.
