‘I’m bored’, ‘I deserve it’ – how often have you eaten something and then regretted it afterwards? Here are some simple steps you can take to avoid the temptation.

1. Pause for thought
Press the pause button and ask yourself: ‘what do I really need?’ Are you physically hungry? Have a quick think about what has been going on recently. Might the craving be about an emotional need?

2. LighterLife Savoury Broth
This low-calorie savoury drink is suitable for all LighterLife plans, low-fat cooking and great for friends and family. Comes in individual sachets, so easy to always have at hand.

3. LighterLife Drink Mix
Drinking water will keep you hydrated and combats hunger. Our Drink Mix is suitable for all plans and the whole family. Comes in St Clements, Fruits of the Forest, Sunrise Orange and Pink Grapefruit.

4. LighterLife Jelly
Our guilt-free Raspberry Flavoured Jelly is fat-free, sugar-free, high in protein and unlimited  on all plans. Have one made up in the fridge and use it with a Foodpack to make a trifle.

5. Change rooms
Even just a trip to the loo can be enough to put a little space between you and the thing that you’re craving.

6. Exercise
A few minutes of fairly strenuous exercise releases endorphins – so-called ‘feel-good’ hormones. Just a brisk walk can lift your mood and deal with the moment.
