weight loss/healthy snacking advice/suggestions pls?
please help, got a weakness for value digestives but am shocked to see they are about 80kcal each so they gotta’ go!
diets really dull at present, and the booze has gone, i avoid fruit, can anyone suggest cheap, comforting, diet (idave or whatever) freidly snacks?Posted 4 years agoTheArtistFormerlyKnownAsSTRSubscriber
Honestly? MTFU and don’t snack. Eat at mealtimes.
I do the opposite – I don’t have mealtimes. I eat little and often all through the day as and when, although this may coincide with breakfast, lunch etc. I never stuff myself and I’m never hungry.
As for the op – a handful of nuts or seeds won’t do you much harm, as long as you aren’t constantly at it between big meals.
Personally a typical day for me might go something like this…
6am get up – coffee
Sometimes a bowl of Alpen
9’ish – chicken breast quarter with skin off, at which time I’ll buy a salad box consisting of:
Some mixed leaves, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, chopped peppers, greek salad (cous cous, feta, olives etc.), 3 bean salad and sometimes an egg.
This will just be munched on throughout the day when peckish.
I’ll have some fruit at some point and maybe a bag of low fat crisps, or rice crackers.
Don’t have a meal at night, but may finish the salad box at ‘tea time’, or maybe have a bit of fish based something or other.

It is difficult, this one works for me.
Do I feel hungry?
Could I eat (insert huge bowl of favourite food here)?
Yes, eat above?
No? Wait till you want to eat above.
I also find, doing something, which uses my hands/mind a lot to take me away from food.
Good luck.Posted 4 years ago
Timely thread – I was just in the middle of eating 3 Ryvita crackerbreads with a bit of marmite smeared on them when I saw it.
I’d ummed and aahed for 10 mins or so wondering if I was really hungry or just wanted some chocolate/beer/a cigarette. Decided I was peckish, now I’m not!
Just looked on the packet and each crackerbread thing contains 19kcal. Not really looked at that before.
Edit: I’m still a fat b@stard though 🙂Posted 4 years ago
