I find it best if I have salty, protien & sweet snacks available.
Over eating and thinking to much about calories & how much/what food... could become an obsession for me. So I set my snacks up- the same day that I do my shopping.
If I shop Saturday- on Saturday- I have a bowl of readily available fruit set up. I slice oranges or tangerines and place them in a baggy, put soy nuts in sanwich bags. Cut carrots and place in a bowl & baggies.
For my protien snacks, I boil the eggs, slice the cheese- again soy nuts are great protien.
If I am desperate for a treat - rather than eating something I am sure to be sorry about,
I just add some sugar free/fat free pudding mix to my shake mix & make a health desert.
