This question is totally inspired by my new house. I’ve never hid the fact that I’m a night time snacker. While losing weight I’d routinely save up points to enjoy popcorn and ice cream in the evening. I even eat within an hour of going to bed. All this snacking always happened, yup, you guessed it, on the couch in front of the TV.
When we moved from old to new house we saw the evidence of all the snacking. Let’s just say allowing a four-year-old to eat on the couch is not a very good idea. We found entire uneaten granola bars along with M&M’s, goldfish, Swedish fish, popcorn and more crumbs then I’d like to mention.
All this led to the husband and I agreeing on a “no eating in the new living room” rule. We’ve always tried that rule in the past but to be honest, I was always the first to break it.
Well no more. I’m done. There will be no eating in this living room. Ever. So far so good. I’m already starting to get used to it. If I want a snack I have to stop what I’m doing and go into the kitchen to eat it. Novel idea, huh?
So I’m curious. Do you have a “No eating in the living room” rule? If not, have you considered it? If so, do you think it helps curb night time calorie consumption?
Just curious as I see this helping me and my nighttime snacking habit immensely.
