I do not like to continually deny or deprive myself of forbidden foods. I fool myself by saying that I can have that treat AFTER I eat my meal, if I am still hungry. After eating a healthy meal, I am full and satisfied and do not crave the sweets. I know I am deceiving myself, but it works for me.

I eat an early breakfast so I carry a 100 cal snack that has some fat and protein for late morning. I can have it where ever it's convenient with a 1/2 cup coffee and a full glass of water. That way I can eat a late lunch and not be starving before supper.30
I learned that if I eat a late lunch (around 1or 1:30) and have dinner no later than 6, I am much better off the next day. My appetite decrease and also I don't feel bloated. It works for me and I hope it works for you!
I drink a great apple cinnamon chamomile tea before bedtime with a bit of splenda. Smells and taste delicious.
