    I eat when I'm bored. And I'm sick of seeing the scales move in the wrong direction!
    What do you do to stop yourself eating?
    At the moment I eat a bowl of Weetabix flakes with semi skimmed milk whenever I crave something...

    HELP :(

    Usually nothing productive - read a book, mess around on the net, watch a film, call someone

    But when those things seem boring... well... that's when the trouble begins. A nice cup of tea often saves me from the biscuit tin though!

    When I first joined MiniMins, I'd jump on here and start posting at my weakest times - at night, after everyone else has gone to bed. Now, I just grab some fruit and start cutting it up to make a fruit salad. By the time I'm finished making it, I don't feel like having any of it, and then I've got some ready-made for if hunger strikes again later :)

    I made a rule to never eat when im on this site so I log on to here. Otherwise I have frozen maltesers in the ice cube tray ready for me, ww sugar free jelly always made up in the fridge, Aldi salsa (exactly same as doritos but 1/2 of the price) with ww tortila chips or baked crisps and dip them in, melba toast with humous or v low fat cheese spread and cucumber on the top, alway have a very large glass of water and if all else fails ring a friend and chat for half an hour and hopefully the craving would have gone - if not I also have the ww deserts in the freezer and skinny cow lollies! Good luck.

    Be aware of eating, chew food very slowly so that you really taste and enjoy it; you'll feel full eating less if you eat/chew slowly :)

    Warm herbal teas are great as well.

    Read the article on here called 'Emotional Eating' then get really selfish:) Every time you feel that "OMG! I'M GOING TO DIE HUNGER" stop and really feel it. Sit down and have a drink of water and concentrate on the feeling. Within 2 minutes you will quickly realise you're not hungry at all, its your brain and habits playing with you. It will last for about 10 days and then the feeling is gone for good:) Just 10 days. You can do it:)

    I try and drink atleast a pint of water if I start feeling hungry or go out for a walk. I think as soon as I think about my food, my mind tricks me into thinking I'm hungry, so I start having stomach rambles but I know I'm full. x

    Don't have 'dangerous' stuff in the house,LauraBabs.

    Evenings are worst for me. I am feeling the niggles at the moment but there is nothing suitable (sweet) to eat anywhere. I am not hungry, just want to scratch that itch lol.

    Eating carbs makes me want more, it's a vicious circle, the last thing I want or need is to binge on them.

    I love reading all the tips.

    I usually have a cup or green tea or tea. It really takes the edge off the hunger. Also if I'm craving something naughty usually around 3pm I have an options hot chocolate. They are very sweet but very low in calorie and always help with the sugar cravings. I feel quite full after one and it ticks me over nicely till tea time. I also often have one after dinner instead of a pudding as I always feel I need to end dinner with something sweet.

    Instead of cereal why dont you try a weight watchers or low fat yoghurt? They are really filling and aren't bad for you at all.

    Xx

    after a couple weeks, I had almost no cravings for coffee, bread, chocolate. I think I must have been lacking something.
