  1. Well, if you're going to be making and eating cookie dough anyway, maybe accept that and prepare for it? You could make a recipe like this one: https://beamingbaker.com/5-ingredient-chocolate-chip-cookie-dough-bites-recipe-vegan-gluten-free-dairy-free-refined-sugar-free/ (Obviously, if you're able to eat gluten and aren't vegan, then you don't have to make them with gluten-free flour or vegan chocolate or whatever.) I know that, personally, if I made a big batch of cookie balls one night and ate them in the afternoons for the next 2-3 days, I'd feel much better about myself than if I was making "dough" in secret and scarfing it down... even though it's practically the same thing!
  2. Oh dear, I have the exact same problem. I don't know that it's a good solution, but I've started eating parts of my lunch as "snacks" while I work, so that I'm at least not ravenous when I finally take a break.
  3. Dried fruit! Alternatively, individually wrapped items can be harder to plow through if you make a rule about taking one out of the package at at time. So there's the buffer of "get up, go get another wrapped snack, unwrap it" between eating each one.
  4. How do you measuring "surviving"? Is it a project or a set of steps to get through? Or a set period of time to survive?
  5. I had my wife do an experiment with this type of thinking. We bought a LOT of cookies (like, three packages, 60+ cookies) and I told her to go for it, the only rule is that she has to eat them mindfully. (In other words, focusing on the cookies' taste, texture, etc, and not doing anything else at all while eating them.) The end result of that experiment was, "This type of cookie isn't actually all that nice. It's got a weird aftertaste and the only thing I really like is the texture." We also discovered that a lot of the reason she was going for snack foods was because she was hungry and wanted something sweet, but didn't want to go to the effort of making something. So, I think convenience is a factor. You can try giving yourself different snack options, not just cookies, and see if the Oreos continue to exert a siren song after a few weeks of unrestricted access. Edit: Whoops, I'm a little late to the party. Sounds like you had a somewhat similar result.

  7. I definitely need more sleep. I'm probably getting to sleep around 1-2 AM right now, and trying to wake up at 7:30. But I've mostly been sleeping in until almost 9. So I guess that means I need a minimum of 7.5 hours, which sounds about right....

Then I woke up very pleasantly and feeling rested. Of course, now I'm really late to work... I thought I was getting things back where they needed to be when I started lifting, but now everything's slid back to being 2 hours behind again. =_= I don't know how to stop this cycle.

  12. Good way of looking at it! You've given enough; the rest isn't your problem anymore. (Or at least... it shouldn't be...)
  13. But... if you're taller, of course you weigh more. Fatness has nothing to do with it, it's just pure physics. A taller person shouldn't weigh in the same range as a shorter person. What an unfortunate comment that they made, that stuck with you all these years.

  15. I'm just not using them because I don't think to. I'm supposed to use them when looking at a screen after 8pm, to avoid blue wavelengths of light. If I'm just reading or something then it's fine, but I've been mostly watching youtube videos until almost 10pm without them. So... it's an area that could see some improvement, to be sure. Maybe I should put them by the media computer instead of by my bed.
