The weekly program was about handling cravings when they strike. Discussion was held about why members crave items, is it out of boredom, nervous/worried, depressed or stressed out simply because something is in the house. When do you tend to snack? Ideas were shared on how to handle one’s situations to help keep the pounds off by not adding extra snacking.
