    I think the witch is due to visit any day now and as usual I have serious munchies.

    I'm afraid fruit and muller light just isn't doing it for me.

    How do you all cope?

    If it's chocolate you are craving then Green & Blacks is the best. Hits the spot in less chocolate!

    try having a huge plate of pasta - should calm your sugar craving down as you get a carb hit that will even out your blood sugar levels

    I microwave some jacket potatoes, make them into wedges, bung them in the oven and have them with lots of salt and vinegar. Good comfort food. It's better than scoffing chocolate, even though it is an 'extra meal'!

    as savoury food is normally my downfall I make up a huge batch of 'pasta' crisps and a bowl of houmous. all free on green.

    Pasta crisps? take lasagne sheets and put into boiling water until soft, spray frylight onto a baking tray and add the lasagne with salt, garlic granules or whatever flavouring you fancy - then bake until crispy in the oven. You may want to use a pizza cutter before baking to make them into crisp size pieces... When they come out of the oven I sprinkle parmesan cheese over them - as most of it falls off into the bottom of the bowl i don't count this as a syn!!!

    I take the Pill so don't have this problem, but when I did I used to have a coffee with lots of milk and a High Lights choc sachet in it.

    I heard that if you microwave a curly wurly and drizzle it over a banana it is scrummy.

    can someone verify if pasta crisps are free or not? Pasta is free food, there are no added ingredients to 'syn' up the pasta.... help, not had these in ages and if they need to be counted as not free then would prefer to know beforehand... many thanks

    How about making yourself some low-cal jelly?
    I use that when I need a sweet fix.

    I've been told by my SW consultant that the pasta crisps are free...... Confusing!!

    If you can eat these and still lose weight every week then carry on... if you're not losing then start to syn them and see if it makes a difference xxx
