However this helps me to stay in control of my snacking, rather than having a packet of Timtams in the house.
I actually do eat healthy, just trying to lose 5 or so kg I gained while pregnant. I was 65kg (now 63kg) and want to go down to 58-60kg (I am 160cm tall).
I am not following the full on cookie 'all day' diet. I am having some fruit insead of a cookie (2 cookies = 1 banana, 1 cookie = 1 small apple, etc), PLUS lots of vegies and small dinner. So I only really have half the amount of cookies recommended.
Once I lose the weight, I might just keep the left over cookies as snack alternatives when I feel like something sweet.
That sounds like a smarter idea. Another good thing To have on hand are some homemade soups, vege soup, chicken soup or minestrone, rather than creamy or pumpkin based soups. Cook up a big batch and freeze into portions. Very healthy and satisfying, a lot of variety of veg etc and quick and easy for when you might otherwise cave and eat the wrong thing.
