when i feel like having a snack, i have the habit of wanting something crunchy and sweet, so i find my favorite yougurt/low fat and i add grape nuts cereal to it. This combination cures my sweet tooth, and the grapenuts give me that constant crunch that potato chips give me.
The only thing I can say is that since day one, I changed my thoughts to "this is how I will eat for the rest of my life", not just some short term fix. Yes, now, I can eat just a little more, but really not much more that throughout the entire weight loss process. 100+ lbs lost and maintaining.

1. Portion control
2. Portion control
3. Portion control
