I am so grateful for all of your replies and advice. You actually have no idea how helpful this support from you all helps. Ok I thought I would put in a wee bit more as I think my post was a bit vague. Because I am still learning about this, it is taking a bit of getting used to. Anyway here goes.
I drink loads of liquid water or sugar free. I do not drink tea or coffee or even alcohol at the moment. I drink constant to the point that I even carry a bottle of water around in my bag. I am using My Fitness Pal app which I love because it is showing me my downfalls and it is snacking. However, to be totally honest, snacking was ALWAYS my downfall. What the app is doing is not "allowing" me to go over my daily allowance because I am keeping within the amount. It is also reinforcing to me what I already know and that is that snacking is what I need to change. Perhaps a little of what I eat may help people to help me.
I don`t eat meat or chicken and haven`t done so for 37 years. I only ever eat veg , fruit, cereal , rice, bread and pasta. This is also another reason I know that my downfall is snacking. Because I am looking for an alternative to what I am already eating. Any ideas anyone and yeah I know it is a tricky one. I also comfort eat when I am stressed. Anyway, like I said I know my downfall I just need to fix it. Any ideas are greatly appreciated.
