When going to a party or get together, take a small toothbrush and a minty flavored toothpaste. Brushing your teeth acts as a natural appetite suppressant, and anti-snacking strategy because of the mint in the toothpaste. So, after you have eaten what you desire, go brush your teeth really well and along with clean teeth, you will have no desire to eat any more sweets or other things you would rather no indulge. Now you can go on to snack another day.

Best idea ever. I normally brush well each night to attain this no-more-snacking feeling (as I tend to be a night-time snacker) but I never thought to try to do this at a holiday gathering! Smart! Thank you!

Glad to hear from you, I have noticed that when I brush my teeth I neither want to eat or drink anything!
Hey Robyn! Cett here. Great idea! Everybody tends to overeat during the holidays and this is an easy way not to overdo it. I'm not a drinker but I would imagine that even booze won't taste so good after minty flavored toothpaste which is an even better idea!
