Number one tip: try to keep a record of what you eat cronometer.com myfitnesspal – I had a marvellous year of weight loss with that… before work started. If you don’t have time, writing it down or taking a pic of literally everything cuts down on extra snacking.

3) if you have a bad day, buy your snack in small amounts, enough to eat, never to store in the house
