thanks for the info...............I don't think that I'm drinking enough water, especially between meals. I'll try changing that today.

Try mixing it, carbs for one snack and protein for another, see if that works. Are you drinking plenty of water as thirst can make you feel hungry or it could be psychological, your brain could be relaying hunger messages because it thinks it's going to be deprived of comfort food mainly as the word 'diet', seems to bring this on.....you are eating healthily not dieting. Try distracting your mind by doing something, like going for a walk, a chore, listening and dancing to some music.

I know it sounds silly but are you actually having all of your food allowance for the day not cutting short the calorie intake as this can also lead to really bad hunger pangs.

Hope this has helped you just a little bit. Good luck and hang in there, you can get through this.

Dieting has always been discouraging to me as I get the "weakies" very quickly. I have 15 pounds to lose and can't seem to get past 5. I try eating protein value snacks every two hours yet by the end of the day, I'm dragging. I've been checked by my doctors and all is well there so..........................any advice?
