    Weight loss/healthy eating help 23rd Aug 18 at 9:42 AM
    I need some help/guidance with healthy eating which I hope will lead to some weight loss.
    I am soon to be 44, 5ft 6", around 83kg and nearly a size 16.
    I don't have a very active job, around 50% of my day is spent sat at a computer.
    I try to be active by doing HIIT workouts and I also like to be outdoors walking the dog.
    But over the last 6 months I have lost my way with my eating habits, I crave savory stuff, pasties, crisps etc.... and up until a few weeks ago my evening meal portions size had become huge. But I have since swapped to a smaller plate.
    I eat breakfast of either porridge or honey nut flakes, work lunch is usually some sort of pasta then an evening meal. I graze on fruit and nuts during the day and try to drink a litre of water a day, although I do like a fizzy drink.
    My main issue is I cannot bare felling hungry and as a result a tend to go for the bad stuff to combat this.
    So I need some help food wise, I have looked on Amazon at the healthy eating books but that just confused me. I don't want a strict diet that is all faf and no fun, just simple advice that works and will give my my confidence back.
    So any advice on books, apps, websites or anything else would be wonderful.

    "Eats like a sparrow"

    If the sparrows in my garden are typical, the above means eat as much as possible as often as possible, especially my seedlings and beetroot leaves ... No wonder 'our' sparrows bounce around full of the joys of life. The little rascals discovered that by sitting on veg netting, their weight would push it down such that they could nibble the beetroot leaves through the netting.
