Welcome! How's your nutrient breakdown looking? Higher protein and fiber will help keep you full and satisfied longer- you can always add a salad to a meal (or in between) to help keep you full longer (just be careful with the dressing!). And swapping in complex carbs helps too.
I agree that spacing out meals helps too. I usually have 3 main meals and 1-2 snacks/day- something like greek yogurt & fruit, reduced fat cheese & fruit, veggies & hummus, etc.
You can do this- start with small changes and work your way up!

Hi and welcome to Spark People. Try snacking on veggies, fruit or other healthy snacks. Spacing small meals throughout the day with healthy snacks in between will help you to stay full and reduce the urge to binge. This also keeps blood sugars steady. When I have to have chocolate, I get sugar-free chocolate pudding or the 40 calorie Fudgesicles.

Today is the 2nd day of my journey and I am so hungry! I have been there and done that with all the different diets and this time, I really want it more than before. But this is how it always starts for me.....I get hungry and frustrated and it goes down hill from there. Any advice? I know I have reduced the amount of food and drinks I am acustom too, but not by much.... why does it have to be soooooo hard!
