Friends, I am currently a home maker and during mid mornings( arnd 9 :30 to 12 AM) and early evening( Arnd 2:00 Pm to 5:30 Pm), I feel like munching soemthing or other apart from my breakfast and lunch..I end up attacking junk food like chips and Haldiram's snacks.. This is completely against my plan to lose some weight...But during those dull hours of the day, I find it very difficult not to eat something of this sort. Following is what I tried 1. Stocked fruits in my fridge.. - Helped to some extent, but I was still tempted towards junkies..In fact I take apples with fruit chat masala. Tastes great,but I need atleast 2 - 3 apples to satiate myself...Sometimes, I eat fruits plus junk snacks... 2. Stopped buying snacks..but each time I shop..I tend to pick some...If I don't get any snacks, I feel deprived..And at tht time I feel one packet of haldiram or Lays will do no harm..Husband gets me all of them and pampers me more :-( 3. Having full breakfasts, filling my tummy, to prevent munchin...Helps to some extent..But I have to have exhorbitant amounts to prevent snacking... 4. Healthy snacking..I started getting Triscuits. They are wheat flakes and I have them with Ranch. Tastes good,does not add too much fat, but I finished the packet ( 400 gms) in 3 days...:-( 5. I even subscribed to calorie plus.com. A free site where u record what u eat, but was too lazy to count calorie intake in everything I eat, specially the cooked ones.. I am so disappointed with my habits now..It s mental control, but this obsession keeps coming back and has increased my body fat, although I look not so fat ( because of my height, it s all hidden). I have to lose 30 pounds..This job has become difficult because of my stay at home. If I went to work like before, atleast I would be distarcted from FOOD..I visit gym in the eveings, burn 300 cals on eliptical..but intake is so much, that even exercise doesnt help :-( Please tell me what do u guys do during mornings and afternoons ?
