im going back on the weightwatchers-ish diet i had started (and put on hold for xmas). im going to exercise aswell but are there any more things i should be doing? (not eating at certain times, not skipping brekkie...anything at all that will help me with it? food or exercise related...or anything else that springs to mind.

They always say that brekkie is the most important meal of the day. Apparently gets your metabolism going or something. I do Slimming World so can't advise re: WW. Good luck! x

what usually works for me is if I've got the munchies or am hungry again soon after eating is to drink something and only give into my cravings if I still have them after downing a pint of e.g. water, cordial etc.

Don't buy any naughty munchies when you go shopping - if they aren't in the house you can't eat them even if you are craving like mad!!!

and don't go shopping on an empty stomach - that way you will feel more motivated and will go for the healthier things (well it's worth a try!)

Try sugar-free chewing gum. It keeps your mouth busy

Take a chromium tablet every day - really helps cut down your sweet cravings, but unfortunately not crisps/cheese/lots of dinner type cravings!

Drink a large glass of water before every meal in addition to whatever else you were going to drink with the meal. It fills you up and is good for you, regardless.

I find it easier to plan the weekly meals and know exactly whats what, rather than slamming a deep pan pizza or other ultra naughty thing in the oven as there's no time as teas in half an hour. Talking of pizzas - have you tried the WW ones, the are actually very nice and I now prefer them to normal pizzas as they don't have a sludgy doughy base, just a nice crip one. The other thing about them is they actually have some flavour.

Furball, I have been eating the w/w pizza and I love the garlic mushroom one. It is so lovely to be able to eat pizza with rest of family again. When I was doing slimming world it was a no-no. Am much happier on w/w.
