Hello and welcome to the Weight Loss Forum teles

I don’t see any other posts from you, apart from one you wrote a while ago over on the Healthy Eating forum, and no, your posts aren’t checked as such, although Admin do delete anything unpleasant 😊

With regards to cravings, it has been my experience that there is normally a physical reason for them, usually caused by hunger, or sometimes stress/anxiety or tiredness. If this sounds familiar then there are steps you can take to avoid cravings, mostly by eating enough and of the right type. I suppose what I’m saying is think about your own personal triggers and then maybe someone will have some tips and suggestions 😊

If you haven’t already then please see Pinned Posts here

especially the Welcome Newbies and the Security Post, especially the latter.

When you write a new post you are given the option to only allow forum members to view your post, which we recommend or else anyone on the WorldWideWeb can see your post.

This is a very busy forum with lots going on but feel free to ask if you have any questions.

Best Wishes in your weight loss journey

Are cravings that bad ? If I eat 1 bar of choc I can walk it off . A bag of crisps ... then I will plan a decent tea and not eat after it . Do this for life and have the odd treat as it doesn't really affect me . Not every day as then back to square 1 but I loved a dish of cannaloni in a restaurant. No starter or mains and a glass of cordial. Personally I enjoy my treats but mindfully .

I'm not sure it counts as a "craving" if you eat it mindfully ... now we've adapted our lifestyles the treat is just that - a treat!

Many people here haven't quite got there yet ... but support here and sharing their experiences (e.g. sugar addiction!) can help :)
