1. Plan Your Everyday Snack Attacks
The more you try to keep the munching craving away, the more it will grow on you. So the key is not to avoid snack attacks but embrace them. Choose healthy snacking options like granola bars, cold pressed juices, almonds and the like. To avoid buying impulsive eats, keep a few of these in your bag (trust us, won’t even take much space) and this will keep those extra kilos away.
