    More salty sex dust per gram of rice cake. I do think some days i'd just be better off with a Salt-lick.

    Hehe, I went to a weightwatchers meeting once and got all the little books they give you. It's actually pretty sensible, the diet you're meant to follow. Two people I used to work with lost a ton of weight (not literally) following it. I wouldn't be bothered with going to the meetings all the time but the diet's pretty good.

    Yeah, I meant you. OMG, that's fucking horrible. I'm never eating them again. I hope you're happy with yourself! ;)

    Yup - i'm doing WW... I tried it last year, did well - lost a stone and a half, then got pissed off with lifey things and gave up.

    And yeah, you can get pink and whites - tesco sells them.

    half a point each :)

    Forget things like tortilla chips, they're loaded with saturated fat and salt.

    I recently discovered pita bread 'crisps' - basically pita bread dried and then broken up into crisp-sized, um, crisps. You can get them here flavoured with garlic, onion, cheese, chives, etc etc. They're bloody delicious! And virtually zero fat. They're absolutely great with dips - for healthy ones go with hummus or tahini - OK they have olive oil but a little bit's OK. You could also make your own dips with yoghurt, chives etc. Don't use low-fat yoghurt though, go with the proper Greek/Turkish full-fat stuff. It's still much healthier than sour cream.

    Not sure, but they're reasonably simple to make yourself. Actually, just google 'pita crisps' or 'pita chips' and there are a million recipes.

    *bump*

    I'm trying to be a bit healthy today and not go for the late afternoon chocolate bar or the 'second' lunch. Apart from the obvious answer of fruit, does anyone know what I can do to kill my late afternoon snack cravings?

    Fruit is too obvious, but how about dried fruit? A handful of dried banana with some dried citrus fruit and mebbe some raisons is good for you and tastes luvverly.

    If not that, then smoke more ciggies. Best hunger-pang killer there is.

    I'm not into dried fruit. I often find it's a bit too sweet. The canteen has a fwe bran muffins... any good?

    Celery and hummus. :))

    Nice. Except I would substitute Celery for Cumbers.

    Mentat - It all depends on what you are trying to do. If you are trying to eat healthy for life, as opposed to a diet, you'll get upset every time you eat some form of shit, which you inevitably will. The way that works best for me, and a lot of other people is to eat well and exersive for 6 days a week and then have a day off. Eat what you want within moderation, obviously eating chocolate solidly for the 16 hours you're awake wouldn't be good.

    Still it helps you to eat well the rest of the time and you can still eat the things you love :)
    Bit of both at the moment - I'm dieting right now to try and encourage weight loss, but i'm intending to keep up the healthy eating for life...
    I'm trying to be very careful for a few weeks to get some sort of result! :)

    I'm pretty sure I saw something very similar in ASDA just last week. Pricey ones made by BERTOLI (of tomato sauce fame) and generic ones as well. They're little round saucer shaped peices of bread. Not pitta bread but close enough.

    I'd miss the celery crunch, but whatever rocks your world :)

    For added goodness, nick a pot of the chilli flakes from Pizza Hut or similar and mix a fair amount into the Hummus (Homous, Humus, Houuououuououououououououmus?). But then I'd add chilli to virtually anything, with the exception of the inside of a condom O_O

    I've just finished a Ryvita Multigrain...or Cardboard+ as it should be known...

    Tried dried mango strips? Not too sweet, and gives you something to chew on. 2 bags for 3 in Tesco at the moment.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    Good old fashioned cream crackers are good snacky type things. 35 cals a slice. Fill you up because they turn to stodge in your stomach.

    Tesco do some lovely snacks in their Healthy Living range these days, especially different cake bars.

    Anyone tried beef jerky? Not really sure if it is classed as healthly, quite a bit of protein though.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    Snack-a-jacks are fucking revolting.

    I much prefer savoury snacks to sweet, but nuts just don't cut the mustard to me.
