    frozen bananas are a good snack too, as they take a while to eat because they are quite hard (but still able to bite bits off!)

    Agree with much of whats been posted already

    My two cents is as far as treats go, dont deny yourself but if u keep them to weekends only i found that really helped me keep it in moderation and i would look forward to and plan what i was going to have - usually whatever id been craving.

    Ive lost 20kg over the past 6 months

    I usually find a cup of tea stops the craving and keeps me feeling full or greek yoghurt with fruit and a dollop of honey for if i really felt like something sweet :-)

    Another tip

    Eat in a way that is sustainable, as in dont think of it as a diet but a long term lifestyle change and no food should be off limits in my opinion.

    Stick to the 80/20 rule. Eat well 80% of the time and you can relax a bit the other 20%. If u deny yourself completely it will be much harder to maintain.

    Worked for me anyway

    Default This is what I ate today...

    I very rarely eat after dinner but if I get a sweet craving I'll have two fresh dates (from the fresh fruit section) with a cup of tea - they taste amazing!! Not like the crappy dried packet ones in the aisles

    I managed to lose 25kg by just sticking to eating protein with salad and veg for lunch and dinner or sometimes it'd mix it up and have veg soup (made at home using only veg and stock) or occasionally I'd have a salad wrap. Or I'd make a friend rice(without using oil) using brown rice, veg and egg.

    For breakfast I'd have either oats made with hot water and banana, grapes, blueberries and natural Greek yoghurt.

    I'd also have omelettes or poached eggs with avocado and tomato, mush & baby spinach. I avoid bread.

    Drink up plenty of water and move as often as you can. It's amazing how much exercising can motivate you to stay on track in the kitchen.

    Good luck!!!

    I blend my frozen banana up in the blender for a minute (sometimes other a tiny bit of water to help get it mixing). Turns it into an ice cram texture without adding anything else. It's sweet by itself but also good with a bit of honey drizzled over top. I actually seen it on a master chef episode and tried it out. Love it.

There are healthy options though as pp's have mentioned so as long as you're snacking right I don't see the problem. I'll often have a bowl of cut up mango and nectarines to pick at, or popcorn if I want savoury

    i brush my teeth too and then I won't eat anything because I can't be bothered brushing my teeth again and wont go to bed with unbrushed teeth
