Self control
I think it is all about self-control. Whether it is diet or exercise related, my mind always seems to try and take the easy option. For a while, my mind would tell me I couldn't run for an hour straight, so I motivated myself and eventually I overcame those thoughts and I can now run for an hour continuously. Same goes with eating- I was a massive overeater and I put on a lot of weight as a result. Now, I changed what and how much of the food i eat. Lost 16 kg in 16 weeks.

hunger makes me fail in dieting
When I first began to eat healthily I used to feel soooo hungry all the time. I refused to eat unless it was time to eat ( I had breakfast, nuts for morning tea, lunch, nuts for afternoon tea and then dinner). If it wasn't that time to eat I would have heaps of water or coffee or tea. My hunger last for the first 6 or so weeks. After 4 months though I hardly get hungry except when it is time to eat. So your body will get used to it eventually so don't give up. For healthy snacks though I would suggest eating a small handful of unsalted raw nuts or a small apple or 2 multigrain/wholemeal rice cakes with peanut butter. Good luck Smile
