1. Be mindful.

When you experience a food craving, stop for a moment and observe your own thinking and responses. Research shows that taking a moment to stop and recognize your mental and physical state can cause cravings to dissipate. Stop and ask yourself: why do I want this? What exactly am I feeling right now? This may not always work. But, at least in some cases, pausing to scrutinize your thought patterns can lead to healthier decisions.

2. Visualize rewards.

Other psychological research shows that visualizing desired behavior can help you follow through on it. Pause for a moment and try to imagine, as vividly as you can, the rewards of making the right decision.
