Welcome Charlotte. I would suggest you plan a healthy alternative for when the cravings hit or you just feel you need to eat something. One of my favorites is carrots. You can also slice cucumbers or an apple. The idea is to not destroy a whole day of good eating because of a high calorie snack.

Last night while watching TV my wife (she is 5'-6" and 125#)sat down with a bowl of clam dip (left over from Thanksgiving) and potato chips. I knew if I ate this it would ruin my calorie plan for the day. So I cut two carrots into sticks and ate them as an alternative. By the time I finished the carrots she had finished with her chips and dip.
