    I keep a tub of roasted red peppers (or orange or yellow) in the fridge for times when I get a craving. I roast them inthe oven on Sunday with a little olive oil drizzled on top and I'm set for the week- great in omlettes too.

    Another craving killer- a bit of fresh mozzarella and basil atop a Triscuit- sometimes with a thin tomato slice- drizzle a balsamic glaze on top and devour. It's not that low cal but it beats pizza or chips.

    Love peoples ideas!

    Thanks!

    Apple slices with a tbsp of natty peanut butter and alot of water is effective for me. And I can turn into quite the cookie monster....and by cookie I actually mean all food within the universe.

    Thanks, love peanut butter too. I have to watch it sometimes.

    Tea/coffee.

    I usually get that munchy feeling at work when I haven't been away from my desk for a while, so sometimes a lap round the building sorts me out.

    Gerber baby puffs. The vanilla ones are my favorite. You get 60 puffs for 25 calories. And if you eat the whole container, it's only 150 calories. I get that 'stuff my face feeling' without all the calories. For the past 6 months I've been eating horribly at night (500 to 100 calories just at night) and I've put on 25 pounds. So the puffs are really helping so I don't eat the whole kitchen.

    I brush my teeth. Having my mouth all minty and fresh kills any desire to eat something.

    I make a hot drink and watch something engrossing on TV, or if I've caught up on everything I will get out a film I love and watch that. It takes my mind off food. It won't work for those who are used to munching while watching TV.

    Options- hot chocolate drink for 40 cals. Delicious! Otherwise a couple of squares of dark chocolate if I really need the choccie hit. If it's something savoury I'm craving I find it harder but will sometimes have one piece of toast!

    Definitely popcorn and rice cakes! It's all about the act of chewing!

    What if you've got a serious sweet tooth? Right now I want chocolate chip cookies so bad, I could hop into my car and go to the grocery store and it's 10:40pm. It's like nothing else will do. I need chocolate!

    OK I've got you...I used to make, and I'll be doing it again...chocolate almond milk chia seed pudding. Literally soak a few Tbs of chia seeds in a cup of chocolate almond milk for a couple hours and enjoy....all protein, bit of carbs and 100 calories but so much better than a pig out chocolate fest! Try it and let me know....oh! And you will be So full!:)

    Thanks! I'll definitely try this!

    Slight variation. Use regular almond milk with 1 tbsp cashews/ almonds and a tsp coconut sugar and spronkled cinammon and cardamom
