Right. I have been having issues with food this week. And I'm just making my shopping list. What things should I definitely get while I'm out?

People have suggested peanut butter as a source of protein.
Raspberries instead of strawberries to keep me fuller longer.

Is there something you make sure you get EVERY week?

Low fat yoghurts. OK, so I live in Thailand and can only dream of having something as lovely as an Asda to shop in! But, low fat yoghurts save me, when i NEED to snack, it's one of those I have, rather than anything worse!

Also, just try to completely avoid the crisps/choccie/biscuit aisles entirely, makes the job a **** of a lot less torturous!

When you get home, post and tell us what you bought, and remember that if you're tempted to go off your list and get the 'bad' stuff

Taking a break from the scale, but BACK WITH A BANG! When I'm back in the UK in April 2013 I hope to be lower than 168, which is from July 2012ish and the lowest I got before some regaining. Until then, it's all about good food and exercise and no obsessing over numbers!

I think full fat yogurts will actually keep you fuller longer since it'll digest slower- the best yogurt by far is greek yogurt- much better than that fruit filled yogurt- for me it gives me cravings cuz it's full of sugar

beerab I agree entirely about normal fat yoghurt if you're wanting something filling.

Unfortunately, I go with the low fat ones 'cos I eat them when I'm not actually hungry, but my body is telling me it 'needs' to snack n I've decided to give in! I love real natural Greek yoghurt, and can't wait to get my hands on some when back in the UK.
