Trust me there are so many options available in the market, which are good to make you feel good even when you are being deprived of delectable cuisine. Best is; most of the options available in herbal or green tea do not require sugar or milk.

• If still the cravings are not satisfied, try chewing gum. This is a good exercise for your gums as well. And is a very good trick to divert your mind from thinking about food and will save you the calories by quenching your appetite.

• To meet your immediate hunger pangs, do keep Marie or Snacks biscuits handy with you. In no time it will extinguish your cravings and dampen your appetite. Try to confine yourself with not more than two or three at a time. Supplement it with either green tea or a glass of water and you will be all set.

• Another option is to opt for fruits. It is always better to gorge on fresh fruits or vegetables which do not add to your existing fat and are one of the healthiest options.

• Carry roasted nuts / grams and you can keep munching them whenever you are hit by such sever hunger pangs. You can also look at trying low calorie snacks like pop-corn in such situations.

Above all, learn to stay happy and stress free as these are the biggest trigger of cravings and learning to stay away from them can help you from putting on some additional calories.
