A common mistake many people make with the evening meal is unconsciously consuming a larger portion than they need.

Take control by filling the lunch and snack box each day with your choice of great tasting healthy food to help you:

  • Resist the temptation to snack on high energy foods when you are stressed, bored, sad or excited. Snack on the healthy contents of your lunch and snack box instead.
  • Be less susceptible to enticing food and drink advertising

Filling and re-filling your drink bottle (aiming for up to two litres each day) with plain water and drinking from it regularly throughout the day will help you:

  • Maintain your hydration and minimise the risk of mistaking thirst for hunger – surprisingly a lot of people confuse the two and overeat as a result
  • sports drinks when you are thirsty

An important key to successful weight loss and weight maintenance is finding ways to avoid feeling hungry, getting bored and managing the desire for snacks.

Any combination of low energy density 'Free Foods" can be consumed at any time during the day because they do not contain enough food energy (kilojoules or calories) to have a significant impact on body weight.

This means you can enjoy really great food without compromising your eating plan.
