I do understand what you are going through.
It was tough for me initially as well. I would stare at the shortbread fingers in the container in front of me with a growling tummy, telling myself: "Charles, DON'T!"

Then I found out it was much easier to curb cravings by having low-calorie alternatives.
One of the best (for me personally) is low-calorie chewing gum.
Fruits and non-fat yogurt (be careful with yogurt though - some 99% fat-free yogurt has high sugar content, and could easily go over 125 calories per serving!) are good alternatives too.

Since this is a lifestyle change (remember, you are not "going on" a diet, because you do not want to gain back the weight when you "go off" it!), you will slowly adapt and start to think chocolate and maccas are YUCK! :mrgreen:

All the best!
