Lo-Dough wins the battle against the Munchies!

After being awake most of the other night in pain with my shoulder I got a serious attack of the munchies! You know the feeling, you could just about stuff anything in your mouth! But I wasn’t going to let that happen otherwise it would wipe out all the calorie burn I have achieved in the past few days.

The trouble with pain though it puts you into a state where you feel sorry for yourself and you think you deserve something naughty when in fact it’s the last thing you need and it will only put you off track and make you feel worse!

So with my thinking cap on I thought to myself, what can I have that’s filling and low calorie too?

Duhh, sometimes I despair with myself lol

Of course it’s a no brainier! Ever since Lo-Dough arrived it’s been my best friend.

My challenge was to have something savoury, not sweet, tasty, crispy and salty! You know the feeling – it’s like craving salt and pepper ribs from the Chinese !

Anyway, the good girl that I am came up with this incredibly simple snack that takes minutes to make and longer to enjoy!

Ingredients

1 piece of Lo-Dough

Tsp garlic salt

1/2 tsp aromat or for a crunchy more savoury snack, 1 chicken oxo!

Butter Frylight

Method

Spray a non stick frying pan with butter frylight . Spray both sides of Lo-Dough with the same butter Frylight

With the pan on a low heat place the Lo-Dough in the pan. Sprinkle with half of the seasoning and spray again. Cook for 1 min then flip over and sprinkle the other side with the remaining seasoning. Spray again. Cook for 1 min, flip over and spray. Cook for apx 2 -3 mins until turning golden, turn over and cook again for a further 2-3 mins.

At this stage if the Lo-Dough isn’t turning golden and crisping up you can increase the heat and cook on both sides until ready.

I served mine with a tablespoon of Blend Bros Smoky BBQ Sauce which is only 5 cals

Cut Lo-Dough into triangles and dip into the lovely sugar free sauce and enjoy a guilt free snack which probably burns more calories whilst you prep, cook and eat than the 44 cals it contains in total!

What’s Hypnosis Ninja?

So I figure when we arrive at a blog post to find out about something that intrigues us we ask three main questions

What’s Hypnosis Ninja?

That’s what I asked myself when I was very kindly accepted to trial their sessions. So Hypnosis Ninja have a selection of downloadable tracks which takes apx 20 mins to listen to and is tailored to your particular problem or addiction.

Is it expensive? Cut to the chase it’s just £9.99 per track! A fraction of a hypnotherapy session! Links at the bottom of this blog post.

Does it work? You listen to them as much as you can and if you have the same results as me you will notice subtle changes at first. They use hypnotherapy combined with New code NLP ( Neuro linguistic programming) to help reprogram your mind and thought processing. Hypnotherapy doesn’t always work for everyone but that can be partly to do with how you commit to it. It is however a tried and tested way to help people beat their demons. NLP simply described is like planting little seeds in your mind – a way of reprogramming your thought processes. Combining the two methods makes for a pretty powerful combination.

Ok so if you are reading this then you probably like me need some help. As a chocoholic and having had an odd relationship towards food with sporadic periods of binge eating where food has been in control I was excited to get to try these. I downloaded two tracks and yes,I can feel some change.

The two tracks I listened to are

  • Changing your relationship with food
  • Chocolate addiction

I have always had strong compulsions throughout my life in relationship to food and been a massive overeater. If I find something I like I buy 10 – not 1, it’s obsessive and it’s unhealthy.

If I find something I like I can’t stop eating it. Whether it be healthy or unhealthy but chances are it will be unhealthy !

Chocolate is also always a pull. Searching for the ultimate chocolate has ruled my thoughts for many hours in a day!

I want to keep this short so this is what I have noticed since listening to my Hypnosis Ninja downloads on my phone

  • I am not obsessing about chocolate
  • I know how to make chocolate and have all the ingredients to hand, yet even though I have had plenty of time on my hands I haven’t made any
  • I am eating healthy smaller portions
  • Food isn’t in the forefront of my mind all the time

This is after just spending 20 mins of listening to the downloads just a handful of times.

Things I have noticed today

  • I managed not to visit a cafe for cake and chocolate despite being right outside and it’s open doors calling me!
  • After a stressful day I also reached for healthy pieces of Chicken and didn’t obsess about chocolates
  • Despite the days events I threw a meal together instead of going for a takeaway!

Like anything else I don’t expect a miracle cure but am willing to try anything that will help and I have noticed changes that are encouraging !

The links to the tracks I have are below and are just £9.99 each.

Changing your relationship with food

Chocolate addiction

They also do a sleep one too! I do struggle to sleep sometimes so I may give this one a go!

Fall asleep fast!

Here is a stop smoking one too. I have never been a smoker but I know it’s so hard to quit!

Stop smoking

I am going to continue to listen to mine and at weak moments I will take myself away for a few mins to listen to my downloads on my road to a healthier me!
