    I have to go to London a lot for work & it is really difficult to stop buying cakes, sweets & food I should not eat and don't really want. Does anyone have any suggestions? I want to leave my money and cards at home but I am petrified that if I do I could lose my ticket and have no way of getting home. I did consider travellers cheques which can be cashed at train stations but this is the only idea I have come up with.

    Make up a healthy packed lunch at home and take it with you. Keep sipping water as well, it suppresses hunger instinct.

    Get yourself one of these, put some cash in it and give the combination to a friend that you can phone in an emergency.

    You could of course just do what people did in BC (before cards), sew some notes in your coat/trouser linings.
