I have another idea if your still having cravings everytime you think about eating more than you should get up and take a walk youll get fresh air and exercize and youll stop thinking about food (dont eat enless your hungry) i really want to help you lose weight candy!

I know those craving and i know how hard they are so everytime you get a craving drink a glass of water your supposed to drink 6-8 glasses of water a should also drink one glass of water before each meal then you wont eat as much becouse water makes you full plus water has no calories you can also try eating half of every meal and saving the rest for later!you can make a calorie chart and keep track of all the caloroies you take in try not to go over 2000 a day or it will turn in to fat!! hope i helped candy

The first thing you need to tell your self is that you are not a pig, no matter how bad you believe it. Eating is a natural pleasure to humans, so thats why we tend to do it when we get bored. Before you pick up something to eat, ask yourself if you are really hungry or just bored. If you are hungry, dig in, but if not, go do something to get your blood flowing like use a jump rope, or go dance in your room. If you are to tired then treat yourself to a manicure or go read a magazine, anything to keep your mind away from eating. A lot of people make lists of things they like to do and when they are bored they put the list to work. You have an amazing amount of power in you, you just have to use it. Know that someone out here believes in you(corny i know but true none the less:)
