You’re just a few days into your diet, but at this moment you’re one foot over the ledge and about to take down a truck load of what ever you see next. You’ve allready eaten your lunch/dinner and with it, most of your calories for the day. It’s dire straights at this point and any sudden movements could trigger a wild food attack!
At this critical point you need to eat something to maintain your sanity, but what could you possibly eat that will give you some level of satiety without blowing out your marco’s?
Green apple w/peanut butter
My favourite go to!
1 green apple chopped + 1 tablespoon of peanut butter
= 150 calories
Frozen spinach w/black beans, tomatoes & onion
It’s a full tilt meal without the calories.
In this order add garlic,1/2 onion, chopped tomatoes, salt, thyme then finally frozen spinach to pan.
After cooking for 5 mins add 1/2 can of black beans then serve.
= 130 calories
Roasted vegetables w/salt & thyme
So much flavour!
Chop pumpkin, onion, beetroot, capsicum, zuchinni & eggplant into squares.
Add one tablespoon of olive oil, 2 teaspoons of salt and thyme to a bowel.
Toss chopped vegetables through the oil.
Place on baking tray into oven @180 degrees for 40 minutes.
Keep in refrigerator and eat up to 300g or a medium bowel size for a snack.

Chopped vegetables w/ kale nut dip
Crunchy & filling.
Slice raw carrot, capsicum, cucumber, celery & beetroot.
Take 2 handfulls of chickpeas, 3 handfulls of kale, 1 handfull of cashews/almonds, 1 tbs olive oil, 1 bunch of parsley and 1/4 cup of water to food processor.
Dip vegetables into dip 🙂
Sugar free jelly
Fills you up more than you would expect
Make jelly, eat jelly.
Salt, Magnesium or hydrolite
Maybe your just thirsty?
Have one of either
1 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of magneasium citrate
Brain octane oil
Be careful with this one!
Super useful for staying really alert & avoiding cravings when dieting.
Start with just 1 tsp and gradually use more over days/weeks up to 1 tbsp.
Can cause stomach cramps & disarster pants if over consumed first go.
Cravings happen, even when you arn’t dieting.
But there are some super delicious, low energy, high nutrient alternatives to devouring a maccas double beef & bacon burger meal.
The scret is to pre-empt and dissarm.
Because you can’t trust yourself when you’re hungry!
