Love Popeye's solution! If we start hearing about strange goings on outside of restaurants and markets, we will know where it came from!

I have thought about making the individual bags of chips myself but, well, it just hasn't happened. Thanks so much for reminding me though -- maybe I will get it together to do that now.

Doing higher fiber and cleaner versions works for me- like the Terra chips, which are sweet potato chips- and dark chocolate, and fruit.
BUT- first thing I do when I get a crave is to check my intake/food log. I track, but sometimes don't watch my balance well. Lots of times, my body is telling me that I've messed up, but the signals get crossed- like I really need some protein. Or carbs. Or... fat. Really. So if I eat to get in balance, the crave is taken care of.

Love your solution Popeye -- does it work at home too emoticon
I'll check it out emoticon I won't be embarrassed but I may distract myself enough to say - "don't need it now"

Yes, I have to admit that Popeye's solution sounds like the most effective!

Thanks for all the suggestions. Popeye may have the answer. After doing that once I may be too embarrassed to go to that store again thus avoiding going out and buying the snack, ha, ha

Yeah, there are some things I just don't keep around the house, but I get things that are healthy substitutes - like yogurt instead of ice cream, whole wheat crackers instead of chips, etc. I try to buy individual serving sizes of some things. I also do the ziploc dividing-up of things. I keep a bar of super-dark chocolate in the freezer and break off a little piece if I'm having a candy craving.

Oh that is too funny!

I try to not deny myself. I figure if I allow myself a little at a time, include it in my calorie intake, then I just don't crave it as much! If I deny myself, then I will over indulge.


For chips-have you tried weighing out a serving on a scale, dividing it up in zip loc bags? Keeps you at your serving without the high cost of individual bags! Just a thought!

When I crave certain foods, I RUN to the nearest location of that food and do 25 jumping jacks, 25 push-ups, 25 crunches, 25 leg-lifters (each leg), and 25 lunges (each leg).

By that time I am getting rather tired, a crowd has gathered and the store manager is in the process of throwing me out of the store.

My biggest issue is chocolate. So, instead of having high fat milk chocolate candy, I try & have low fat choc. milk, sugar free hot choc. or if I feel the need to have candy, I'll have a very small amount of DARK choc. which is lower in fat.

I am a chip addict and unfortunately I haven't found a way to not eat them. I've tried pretzels but it just doesn't work. I have tried the small bags of chips but that gets expensive and sometimes I end up eating two!!! Brilliant, huh?
