i practice (violin). can't eat when my hands are occupied. ;) or if i want to distract myself but not wear out my fingers, i'll go online and practice some ear training; there are like a zillion websites with ear training exercises.


what else...drinking warm/hot water, or green tea. put on some music and stretch/do yoga. search for poetry online. but i'm a nerd, so my ways of distracting myself from food might not appeal to other people. :P 


or i'll do some bullshit busywork that i've been putting off, like paying bills/sending in applications, cleaning my room/doing laundry, etc. i really need distractions right now because i'm on day 1 of a water fast!


sometimes when i'm fasting and have cravings, i'll write a list of everything that i would eat if i allowed myself to give in right now. then i look at the list, which is usually a mile long, and realize that there will never be an end to my wants and so what's the point of giving in this time?

'Will I ever be happy?' he asked me. I shaked my head. 'No.' I answered. 'People like us aren't made to be happy. We can experience seconds, moments of happiness, but we won't be happy like the others. It's destiny. No one can change it.'

I eat when I'm really hungry, but just a little bit, and then drink a lot of water. When I'm little hungry, I just drink water. And look at thinspo or go to myproana, or just go out of house.

I found coke zero takes my hunger totally away. Especially of a moring, Just one can.

Also coffee... I make mine by filling the cup 3/4 with water and adding maybe 40ml skim/no fat milk. This works too.

Tea is good, but not quite as effective.

Filling up on water is also good for prevetning snacking.

I just distract myself, but if I'm desperate I'll have a spoonful of mustard.

I wish I could have a cup of coffee/tea/energy drinks but I usually get shaky and hyper immediately so I cannot when at work. I don't fancy herbal teas so would have a big mug of hot water with a tsp of manuka honey (33 cal I believe). Then I'm okay...at least for a couple hours.
If I'm at home I'd just have a little kip :)

Does mustard really help? More than one person mentioned it, I'll totally try it.

Coffee during the day, no later than noon, and then chewing gum after. If it gets real bad I just go to bed!

I just drink lots of teas and zero calorie broth. Eating a teaspoon of mustard helps to.

NOT English mustard I hope! That WILL blow your head off LOL
