    I had a huuuuge test of willpower today - I was flying and faced with all the yummy free food (most of it carbs!) in the airport lounge!

    To try to divert my mind from the sarnies, pastries and crisps, I grabbed a huge pile of newspapers and read them cover-to-cover to avoid thinking about the food!

    This got me wondering - what tactics do you all have to distract you when there's naughty food about and you have to avoid it?? Any tips I can pick up? :)

    Thanks folks! So true about having legal snacks on hand!

    And I totally agree about 'cheating', I'd rather do it properly or not do it at all! :)
