Also we have an endless supply of cookies and chocolate at work, it will help if I can either take an alternative to share, or just for myself.

Thanks in advance! 8)
I think it would help if you tell us all what type of foods you like, and then maybe we can come up with a lowfat version for you, this way your getting the foods you love without feeling deprived. As far as chocolate, take some lowfat pudding cups, or sugar free jello ( I think you call it jelly there, my hubby is english too lol). Im not sure about a substitute for cookies, but there is someone on here that just posted the other day about making cookies for a school function so perhaps she can come up with a lowfat version cookie? Her post was either in general or in desserts forum.

On edit, it is PA baker that makes cookies. I hope I'm not putting her on the spot here, but she does make lovely cookies.
