Ok , so I can't figure out how to stop the mindless nibbling. When I work I serve breakfast and lunch in the dining room and sometimes the girls give us stuff because they don't want to throw it away. When I'm out at events I grab things without thinking and I have a huge habit of eating when im bored. Its just so hard to break those old habits.. any advice?

Idk ..how bout saving some of your days caloric recommendation just for mindless nibbling...like if ur daily caloric needs is 2000 save bout 300 or more and count as ur mindless nibbling resources

Maybe carrying around with you a healthy snack can help, you just have to form a habit.

If you like you can use myfitnesspal . You can track what you eat and how much you consume.

Your welcome :)I can imagine it's tough managing food when you have other people to think of.

1200 Calories?? Id starve to death..  whn my caloric intake is over 2000 I still lose bout 1-2 lbs a week..well if u use fitnesspal and ur logging ur nibbling thn u knw how many extra calorie ur taking n....u could always add an extra workout at night to make up th difference...I mean long as ur nibbling hasn't gotton to far out of hand I mean if u like th nibbling (sorry I thnk I jus like writing tht word ) thn enjoy it and just workout some more if u can

Its at 1200 because I set mfp to me being active... I work in a nursing home and walk around all day. And I set that I was trying to lose 2 lbs a week and work out 5 days a wk. But I actually just change d it to 1.5 so that gave me more calories. I wouldn't mind the nibbling if it always something healthy, at home it is...when I'm out, not so much Lol. But I kind of really want to just break the habit because its not a good one
