A post by Kate just reminded me of a book that I just read called, "Mindless Eating." If you have any interest in discovering why we eat foods we don't want to, or why we eat way too much at times, this book is a very fascinating read.
It has some practical ideas like replacing your dinner plates with smaller plates. Put your large glasses up and get smaller ones. And it discusses the ideas of eating scripts, which makes you think about ways that you might be able to change your eating scripts.
I'm trying to figure out how to change my Mt. Dew and boredom script. I hate to say it, but I believe on a subconcious level I've bought into their marketing. I have been able to kick alcohol and Starbucks, but Mt. Dew has been tough.
Maybe if any of you read the book, you could share some script-changing thoughts.
I originally heard about this book from Ironclm, it just took me some time to read it myself. Her review is really good: Ironclm's Review
