    Agreed on Pepsi Max - I only allow myself a can a day but diet coke or anything like that is a must for me.

    Diet fizzy drinks are free, but they're full of chemicals and aren't very good for your health - they can also play havoc with your blood sugar levels, making you feel hungrier. I think that like all processed-type foods, they're best enjoyed in moderation :)

    As for the topic, oooh, I don't know - my one essential thing when I go shopping is my food list, where I've planned out everything for the week. I always buy potatoes though - I find SW chips so delicious and comforting!

    hmm...not been doing this long but these are the things I go to when before hand I would have just eaten a load of garbage!

    Yoghurts
    curly wurlys
    kit kats
    fruit by the gallon
    Pepsi Max (smacks hand)

    How ironic, 3 out of the 5 things are still garbage which is what I'm meant to be staying away fro LOL

    1. avocados
    2. fresh pineapple/canteloupe melon
    3. activia intensley yohurts (2.5)
    4. tickled beetroot
    5. tickled cabbage
    there are several more "must haves" but I won't cheat and add them :D-ok I may have cheated a little by putting 2 together :p
