    Hiya all

    I just wanted advice on how to avoid eating at danger times. My worst times are:

    After work, when i am at home in the evenings
    Weekends where i dont do much but rest and get ready for work on Monday.

    I tried going to gym during those times, but after i come back from it, i am starved and head for the fridge.

    What can i do?

    My danger time is the evening. When I was on Cambridge I used to have 1/2 a bar for dinner and save the other half for the evening.

    Then when the time came, I'd make a huge cup of coffee, get everything in place and really enjoy it.

    To be honest, I reckon it was that evening 1/2 bar that kept me going most of the time. I used to so look forward to it. Days work done, time to relax etc.

    My danger time is evenings and weekends too. I save a pack for evening time and either have crisps or a mousse which helps.

    I also have a savory drink at times when I want to binge because it does take away that feeling of needing something sweet.

    Tonight I really wanted to eat some chicken leftovers so I came to bed. I am determined no more nibbling now.

    Another good tip is to have a mug of hotwater with some water flavourings in.

    Hiya all

    Last night i conquered the danger times. I felt hungry and had the urge to eat. So i took Karion's advice and got huge cup of coffee and the chocolate bar which i really love. AFterwards i didnt even think about food at all.

    I have also decided to go to the gym (hopefully this will increase my losses...is this right or is it just wishful thinking? :) )

    I wont do anything strenuous but walking on the threadmill and doing some weights in order to get my muscles going.

    I really love the support i get from this site. Whenever i feel like binging, I log on and read all your funny stories and your struggles and not to mention your success. You cant really imagine how i benefit from this site.

    Cheers to the admins.

    This is probably going to sound very pig-headed but I don't really get danger times anymore except during TOTM.. but I've found a cure for that now.. tea & some water flavouring, does the trick:) :)
