    Default Hungry hungry hungry

    Have managed my food all wrong today and now seemed to have awakened Raymond ( sugar monster)

    I have had to snack today and I am still hungry :-( how do you get past times like this ?

    I do have a good dinner planned and starting to cook but feel like I could eat my own arm

    It's at these times you just need to eat lots of Harcombe Friendly foods to stop Raymond getting his wicked way. I was particularly starving just now so had a really early dinner and cooked 2 steaks for myself. If you are hungry you are inviting the sugar monster in with open arms. Just eat real food and nip it in the bud.

    I agree. When I'm craving cakes, biscuits, sweet things, I allow myself a Harcombe friendly snack - cheese, cold meat, boiled eggs, just anything to stop myself from eating the wrong things. And then I make sure my next proper meals are large ones, as Lizzi suggests, to stop the problem recurring.

    +1 for just eating Harcombe foods & plenty of fizzy water!

    Raymond having his wicked way made me lol especially cos Raymond is named after my charming but lying and cheating ex

    Thanks for your support . I am actually pleased with myself as this is the kind of time I have faltered in the past . Have a big dinner of roast chicken gammon and veg almost ready :-)

    Hope your dinner hit the spot Teresa!

    I've had a bad day today - we've got builders in at the moment, and I'm sure you can relate to that. Tell me it's worth it, please! They're converting the rear end of a long tandem garage that we have, and we stupidly thought that wouldn't impact on the main house... we realise now how foolish that was Hopefully, it'll be over in 1-2 weeks and we can straighten out the rest of the house. It will be fab once finished, though.

    I feel for you runtara, that kind of disruption is really disconcerting .

    Dinner was lovely thank you and have a fridge full if meat now for salads. Raymond is still whispering in my ear but I am ignoring him

    Tess, I hope you manage to kick Raymond in the ass! It seems like the real version and the sugar monster one both deserved it anyway!

    +1 for all of the advice above - if you're hungry, EAT!

    Totally - if you think you're hungry but only want to eat rubbish / sweet things etc then chances are it's a craving & not genuine hunger.
