As much as diet culture would like us to believe there are good and bad foods, there’s nothing wrong with enjoying a snack. I couldn’t get through the afternoon without a cuppa accompanied by an energy ball or granola bar! The issue comes when it’s mindless snacking. It can be so easy at the end of an evening in front of the TV to find you’ve finished off an entire packet of biscuits without even realising it. You’re left feeling awful because you’ve overeaten, and you didn’t even get any pleasure from it as it was all done on auto-pilot!
Today I will be uncovering the many different reasons so many of us struggle with mindless evening snacking and the feelings of guilt associated with this. In this episode, I’ll share some tools that can help you cut down on snacking without feeling you’re restricting yourself.
