Candy corn lol. Or use fruit as snack for them, and cookies/candy as a rare treat. That's what my grandma did. When I eat grapefruit (with no sugar added) I still moan and groan with how good it is. My parents didn't buy it, so I only got it at grandma's. I have to deal with my skinny bf's pop and cookies around the house. He had a batch of cookie dough in the fridge for a week and I didn't eat any of it!! And I only ate 3 of the cookies he made. Now that took some will power.

I did drink two glasses of pepsi yesterday tho :/ I'm at the heavier side of my normal weight fluctuation right now so I'm trying to be good until my pants aren't so tight.

I also have to buy things that don't tempt me. One thing that works for me is the refrigerated cookie dough. I am not tempted to run out and bake them when I need a fix but, I can bake them up on short notice if I need a treat for a small visitor.

Keep at it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's when I eat 2 tablespoons of peanut or almond butter on rye crackers.

Don't be mean to yourself, I think you're setting yourself up to fail.
It's OK to eat, just find something that works for you....have a couple
of Dill pickle spears, they're only a few calories, or have some Yogurt,
Dannan "Light & Fit" is low calorie, have some Granola, homemade is best.

I use "Rolled Oats" in almost everything, I add them to soup, stew, on
my sandwich, in Tuna fish, mix the oats in with ground beef, with eggs;
almost everything....they don't change the taste of anything, they help
to fill you up, they add whole grain to your diet and help you feel
more full.

Have some Bananas, Oranges, Apples, Carrots, Celery, and whatever
else you like, so when you get hungry, you can eat them instead of
chip, cookies and candy. Just a little bit of peanut butter on a stalk
of celery can be filling. If you don't like the long fibers on the celery,
use a peeler to peel the bottom of the celery stalk off to get rid
of them.

here's my favorite way to cut calories, and in a most pleasurable way, too: i stroll and scroll the member's food photo gallery, devouring the deliciously pictured meals there with an active imagination. i do this most frequently in the early mornings and late evenings when my appetite just won't let me be....fantasy foods can offer a short-term fix for a calorie conscious foodie....

I am a night eater and I need to plan for my fourth meal in my calorie allowance.

I do the peanut butter, crackers and small glass of skim milk or a banana/skim milk and ice cube milkshake buzzed up in the blender.

I agree with Al, don't be mean to yourself, keep experimenting!
