    Hiya..i just thought i would start a random thread, i dont know if there is one already..but just a thread for peoples secret tricks or tips. For example, this is probably obvious..but when im having a chocolate craving, i had a big mug of the WW hot chocolate, which are delicious and chocolatey and only 1pp, and after that i feel a lot better!!

    Just thought if anyone had any tips that really help them get through different issues of being on WW, it might be helpful :) I apologize if there is already a thread like this i havent seen!

    Not doing WW personally but my lifesaver is a large glass of hot blackcurrant (sugar free of course) squash when I need something sweet.

    I was on WW PPs but have now switched to calorie counting.
    Always be prepared. Keep some low pp food in your bag/car to eat if the hunger strikes when you are out. I keep a couple of Alpen Light bars in my bag so as to avoid eating high point foods when out. Also eating before you go out is very important. Supermarket shopping on an empty stomach is a disaster as is going to places like shopping centres where cafes and restaurants are all around. If you feel deprived because of not being able to eat out at your favourite cafe etc then buy yourself a small treat like a new shampoo or lipstick instead.

    I tend to eat just fruit in the morning in the week then use my points in small amounts throughout the rest of the day as I get more peckish in the evenings.

    I'm the same, can't stop nibbling in the evenings, maybe I should have fruit for brekkie too. Maybe with a 1pp WW yogurt :)

    I am the opposite. A good breakfast keeps me full for ages, often don't even feel hungry by lunchtime. Two boiled eggs and 1 slice of toast plus a piece of fruit is my fav breakfast and only 6pps. I was eating porridge every morning but find the eggs keep me full for longer, think it is the protein. I am a nightime nibbler too but a good brekkie means you eat lunch and dinner later so you are less likely to snack. I always keep a few points for my night time choccie and tea.

    I have changed my meals around so I eat my dinner at lunchtime and have a light snack in the evening. I cook them the evening before bring it into work in a container and reheat at lunchtime. It stops me snacking and I feel more satisfied during the day! Could be worth a try...

    Roasted veg all the way, so delicious, I make them as often as I can and try to keep a box in the fridge for nibbles. Make 'em spicy with paprika and chilli powder or herby with oregano. Butternut squash is a personal favourite and filling too.

    Not really a food tip but I really find that planning in advance is such a help. I sit down in the morning and write down what I 'm planning to have for lunch and dinner (doesn't always work this way,but My days are always better when I can do it this way). Then I see how many pp i've left over and it allows me to decide if I want to blow them all on a muffin when I'm out with the girls or keep some for my after dinner treat. Sugar free jelly and diet 7up are great helps top-0 pp treats for when thr going gets tough.
