Keeping Candy Wrappers Stops Mindless Eating

Diet Tip: Keep Wrappers in Sight

If you have an affinity for candy like I do, and you find that you chow down on candy without even knowing it, you may want to keep all those wrappers around as you eat. Recent research has found that having a visual reminder of how much we eat, keeps us honest and keeps us eating less. We see the empty wrappers piling up and register that it may be time to stop. So instead of throwing the wrappers in the trash can immediately keep them around for a visual cue to stop mindless eating.

This is SUCH a good tip! Seeing candy wrappers lying around had definitely helped me stop over-doing it before.

That's a really great tip! I usually stash the wrappers back in the bag or into the trash and end up eating too much.

i actually like that idea and agree with it. even when you're just noshing on small candies - you look into the garbage can and see that you've eaten quite a bit - and well that's enough to make you put the bag away!

This is a good idea. I don't eat candy, but I'm sure there are other ways for me to use this tip; thanks!
