I'm not one worried about weight for I am what I am and that's that however, if I were, I'd try eating fruits or flavored rice cakes and/or anything that is low in calories. They say drink a glass of water will take away the hunger. How true that is, I don't know but I do know water cleans out your system.

Portion control is my only recourse. I have zero willpower! Sometimes I can try something else that is a better choice. If I crave sweet, I will have a small sweet rather than a huge piece of cake or a pint of ice cream. If salty, I have a few chips in a bowl rather than eating out of the bag and try to eat slowly and savor them.

Hi, malibu_barbie_mag. I try to drink a cold shake or eat a cold nutritious fruit. This will help me to ease the annoying cravings that I may have.

Frankly, I maitain a good weight for my age. LOL But I have to admit I like to crave food like anyone. My solutions are: 1) Have an apple or banana or any fruit when start cravings. 2) I love Chinese sunflower seeds, watermelon seeds or any well prepared seeds. You can find them from any Chinese shops. They are really good as they not only can satisfy my taste buds, but also stop me eating too much in a certain time as I have to peel them one by one. LOL Give it a try!
