I like to cram in 2-3 servings of veggies with my noodles. I'll cut up carrots, mushrooms, onions, spinach, etc and toss them w/diff types of noodles, gr. chicken and sauce. Look for recipes like Korean Jap Chae, or Lo Mein. Tons of veggies which makes the portion look HUGE, and really filling.

I am vegetarian and I live in a college dorm where no cooking in the rooms is allowed, besides a microwave. I usually cram my mini fridge with Salads from Trader Joes and get canned soups and fresh fruit. Any other ideas???
I am an ice cram a hillier. No matter what flavor it is I love it. With the exception of black liquorice. That could be how I put on so much weight. Ice cream and a lot of medications. The I discovered Skinny Cow. Skinny Cow is the Dieters dream. It comes in many flavors and my favorite is chocolate truffle. 4
I use to be able to polish off a pint of Haagen Dazs in a short period of time. And that is 240 calories for 1/2 cup. Skinny cow is 100 calories per bar and is much more satisfying. Give it a try and you will thank me. Oh and as far as I know there is no fake sugar.
Stop buying splurgable items. I stopped buying junk food and soda, and it helps me stay on track with my daily intake on calories. I can't possibly binge on a bunch of junk if there isn't any around for me to cram down my mouth!
Take it slow, and start stopping to buy junk a little bit at a time. This way the family isn't hit hard with junk withdrawal and furious with you. Switch out the chips for nuts, cookies for apples or grapes, buy yogurt instead of icecream and so on.
