Standby Food – Keep at Arms Reach at All Times!

  1. If you're out and about and get caught hungry you're much more likely to make bad food choices. The convenience of vending machines, drive throughs and take away are a common downfall. You can head off this problem by always having some allowable snacks on hand.
  2. Organise healthy stand by snacks in advance, having a zip lock bag with a 30 gram portion of mixed nuts, small apples or oranges on hand will stop you getting caught out.

I'm so glad others have mentioned how hungry they are! I'm on day 1 and I've been starving all day! I'm definitely chopping up lots of veges and a little cheese to have on hand tomorrow. Does anyone know if feeling this hungry is expected? Will it subside after a few days?

Mrsinger I used to have 2-3sugars in my tea! I now have none! You get used to the taste. I had a tea with sugar in it the other day and it was sooooo sweet! Try using teas with strong flavours. I like twinings Assam bold. Good luck!

mmm Banana not the best thing to be adding to your shake!!

I have only used water. I make my shakes in advance and make them really cold in fridge or even the freezer and they thicken up. Drink them through a straw which is slower and enjoy the shake. If I am having a day where I just want to eat I treat myself with a Banana smoothy. A vanilla shake blended with water and a small banana. It is just Devine and very filling. Hope that helps.

If u r really motivated, and start doing this religiously it works amazingly. U mite just have sacrifice a little bit of ur sleep. All u have to do is go for about 40mins or an hour walk early in the morning before the start of your day. Basically this should b the start. U should finish a 500ml of water on ur walk bk home. Freshen up n have a shake for brekky. U can snack fruit n nuts before lunch. Tuna salad is best for lunch. Have your fruits. Drink water as much as u can through out the day. In 6weeks u r guaranteed to lose at least 8 - 10kg. Yes it works. Try it out. Goodluck people.......

Hi all! Apples for some reason, make me hungrier than I was before hand! It is ridiculous! So I am having apple cut up into small pieces at about 11am then a shake at about 12.15pm. Afternoon is better as I am having a handful of Almonds and a snack bar about an hour afterwards.... Is this ok?? (this is only my second day - but I am feeling really good about it - and am having no issue saying "no" to treats - but I am starving...a lot of the time.) I'm a bit lost but think I am on the right track, is anyone else starving?

i find it very hard to lose weight as in most of the week and have no one to help me

ive just put a snack bar in my bag as an emergency just in case i get caught out snack. i hadnt realised how many snack bars i had but im not planning on having 1 every day so they should last a good length of time. if i get hungry whilst out i buy a bottle of water to start with and if that doesnt work i get an apple/apple slices which together put me on until i can get home. i also found chewing sugar free gum stops me feeling as hungry

I chop a meal bars into 14 small chunks and put about 5 in a small plastic tub in my handbag for emergencies!
