For me, I was constantly hungry no matter what I tried. It wasn't until I went low-carb and cut out the sugars while increasing the healthy fats that I not only wasn't ravenously hungry anymore, but also started to consistently lose weight. Sugars and high carb foods tended to leave me hungry again within 2 or 3 hours. Now I sometimes can go 8 hours before I'm feeling the desire to eat.

Not saying you need to go low-carb, but might check to see if your healthy fats and (to a lesser degree) protein levels are up just enough to help keep you sated.

It's helped me a lot to pay attention to what I eat and make sure that the foods I am eating are delicious and plentiful.

The other piece is purely mental. I have the attitude "everything is permissible, not everything is beneficial." Then I try to eat the things that are beneficial.

It's all about what we tell ourselves. If you start by saying positive things to yourself and weight loss that will help. Also use all that sparks has to offer and that will help. Clean the junk out of your kitchen....if it isn't there you can't eat it. Replace it with fruits, veggies, lean meats and whole grains. Good luck

I am dealing with this today. After the Easter weekend with family and friends, not eating my best, yesterday and today I am struggling to stay on the right path. I have been drinking a lot of tea and water. Also I have planned in a hard boiled egg for a protein snack. Baby carrots, grapefruit and strawberries are my quick healthy snack. I hope by eating well today, tomorrow should be a little easier. I know that I am not really hungry (because I ate a very good lunch with plenty of good healthy stuff).

I've been trying to diet for a long time and i really can't seem to do it!

I was just wondering if anyone's got any tips on how to stop me craving food and control my urges to eat.

Also what to eat with less carbs in.
Thanks :)
