    Your first choice for snacks between meals should be fruit, vegetables etc. Of course, free foods are 'free' for a reason- but realistically it is impossible to lose weight if you eat potatoes and rice all day in large quantities. HOWEVER: The key is to eat free foods, but STOP when you're full.
    Tips:
    - Drink plenty of water, sometimes hunger and thirst can be confused.
    - Choose superfree fruit and veg first if you start to get peckish.
    - Make sure your main meals contain protein, carbs and fruits and veggies- potatoes and rice and pasta etc, are super feeling, but low in energy density- they should keep you fuller for longer without adding huge amounts of calories.
    -Make sure your 'hunger' isn't boredom! I used to snack when i was bored, not when I was hungry.

    Remember, eating free food is always better than eating a bar of chocolate- if you're hungry, eat! If you're really hungry, you could binge on someting 'naughty', so don't let yourself get ravenous!

    Great advice from Clairebear

    Why not make a slimming world quiche to snack on packed with superfree veg? If you make the quiche in individual muffin cases it feels like a real treat!
