How I Started and Why It Worked
This became part of my Sunday meal prep, and it took less than five minutes to make a few snacks for the week. I'd put a variety of snacks on my counter like raw almonds, popcorn, or sunflower seeds, get out my food scale and measuring cups, and a few containers — it was kind of fun! Then I'd put the snacks in my pantry at eye level, so they'd be the first thing I'd see when I opened the cabinet door.
I found that it was much easier for my brain to register that I had had enough to snack on when I held the little baggie or container in my hand. I found I enjoyed the snack more instead of just mindlessly reaching for more. When I had eaten the last bite, I felt satisfied.
