Here are 3 tricks to combat the urge from the book “The Hunger Fix” by medical professor, Dr. Pamela Peeke:

1. Chew sugarless gum. It triggers the release of serotonin, one of our feel-good chemicals. Which soothes stress.

2. Don’t work against your stress and start a diet plan on a Monday. You’re stressed out enough as it is at the beginning of the workweek. Instead, start your diet on a day off – like Saturday.

3. Create a visual reminder of your goal. Maybe it’s a picture of an outfit you want to wear, or a vacation you want to go on. But having a visual reminder of your goal on your fridge, computer, or phone can be the stop sign you need to see before reaching for a snack.
