sugar free Jelly

if you feel like a pudding or a sweet snack. try sugar free jelly, it has very few calories and tastes just as good. Also its mostly water (which is good for you). I put low fat custard with it to make it into a proper pudding-its yummy.

When you just have to have chips

The no salt added variety can deliver the crunch without the added sodium. I just have to have chips if I eat a tuna sandwich. This is a smart way to fill the crunch.
Baked is good too, if you can find reduced sodium.

"GET WHILE THE GETTIN IS GOOD"

It seems like this has been my attitude forever because most of my life I have "dieted." I was either severely restricting my food or I was bingeing on what I couldn't have on my diet. Now I'm trying to enjoy all food in appropriate portions...it's a much more doable way to live and still lose wt.

Small steps

Take small steps in changing your diet. Start with eliminating one thing at a time. After awhile, you'll get used to not having it in your diet.

Lipstick to Deter

When I need to hold out for a half hour to an hour before I can eat again (without binging) I put on some nice lipstick. It makes me feel pretty, and I don't want to mess it up by eating. This helps me control my desire to eat what's in sight.

Barbecue or party

Bring a vegetable tray with fat free ranch dressing and a bowl of fresh cut-up fruit to pick on. It will keep you away from picking on salty, fatty snacks or more other foods. the kids will love it too.
