I find it extremely hard to give up hot chips, and not just a few but it has to be a whole boat load. haha That and ice cream with milk chocolate shavings and peanuts mixed together... amazing! I have the tendency to eat one type of food over and over again until I get bored of it. Then on to the next yummy disaster. I think the best way to "avoid" a craving is to feed it, with a healthy alternative. So, instead of a greasy pizza, make a homemade one... then you'll know for sure that no one has spit in it! :D And, being prepared, for me, is probably the best way to avoid overeating in the first place.

Same here re hot chips, and the greasier the better. Unfortunately, 100g will be at least 850 Kj and a lot of that energy will be from the saturated fat (which is bad news).

What I do is eat, very occasionally, low-fat frozen chips from the supermarket. These are about 500 Kj per 100g (about a handful of chips). I'll eat 300g in a sitting. That's only 1500 Kj provided the chips are microwaved or baked in an oven without any added oil. They're not too bad, but I prefer the greasy fish&chip shop variety.
