Have a light lunch
If your boyfriend, husband or other half simply can’t do without a big meal in the evening, make up for it by having a light meal at lunchtime. Try a mixed salad with half a tin of tuna or an egg, or seasoned vegetables with a small portion of carbs or to see you through until dinner. This way you can still have a full meal in the evening - veg, meat or fish, carbs, bread and dessert.
Sharing and caring
Sweet treats and snacks with the kids can be lethal! Go for a piece of fruit, and if you have to have something more substantial have a piece of bread with low-fat spread or jam instead of biscuits.
Reduce your portions
Don’t put as much on your plate! The kids and your husband have higher energy needs than you do.
