Thankful I've not had a craving for jalapenos!

It is your choice... munch ahead or think about this: Life is not like a box of chocolates. It's more like a jar of jalapenos. What you do today might burn your ass tomorrow. ~Author Unknown

Thank you both for the replies and advice. I am actually not feeling hungry, but just wanting to munch. After I finished the cereal, I've kind of gotten a grasp on myself, but still it's hard not to eat something else. I'm just going to have to have sheer determination.

Thank you again.

Eating wheat products can often have the undesired effect of making people hungrier thanks to blood sugar highs and crashes. Try having more protein and healthy fat during meals. You should feel more satiated for longer. One of my favorite "tide me over" snacks is summer sausage with cheddar cheese. Fills me up quick and gets me through until mealtime.

Put the cereal away (unless it's a high fiber cereal) and have a piece of fruit. I replied to another member who was also having problems controlling their hunger and I recommended that they try to eat more foods that were high in fiber. If you're eating a sugary cereal, you're going to feel more hungry later.

Try having a piece of fruit. Fruit has natural sugar which will help curb any cravings you're having. It also has fiber. Eating foods that are high in fiber will help keep you full for longer. So, if you're not eating 6-9 servings of fresh fruit and veggies each and every day, I'm going to suggest that you do. Eating more fresh fruit and veggies will help curb your hunger.

If you want to be strong and lean like Popeye,"eats yer spinach".

Also, try drinking some water. Some times hunger isn't really hunger, but a manifestation of thirst. Drink up !

...and I'm not hungry. Thinking of food (anything) today is making my mouth water and I just can't stop munching! I've eaten just over half my calories for the day. I'm munching on some dry cereal now, as slowly as I can, just to try to get the munchies out of my system. I'm so afraid because the cereal is almost gone now and I know I'm going to go on another pantry search soon. HELP!!!
