Day 5 back on the wagon although really hungry!

Monday, September 03, 2012

Have now managed 5 days back on SP.
I've been recording my food and exercise on SP, so far so good, I haven't had 5 perfect days of eating but I'm getting the hang of it again - don't want to think how many calories I was eating before, must be in the thousands. The problem is I'm really hungry all the time, I'm trying to eat balanced meals with lots of fruit and veg but I don't seem to ever get full. It's annoying because I have an hourly battle with myself to avoid stuffing my face with rubbish!

I managed another jog today but really struggling with my breathing, lungs give out before my legs and I get a really bad stitch. I've Googled some controlled breathing exercises which I will try on my next jog emoticon

    I agree with Pickie. Make sure you're eating some protein every time you eat. Even if it's just a snack, you need a little bit.

    Protein is the best hunger stopper.. Chicken, turkey, cheese sticks, ,,

Drinking a full glass of water before , during, and after each meal helps fullness last a little longer..
apples are filling too.. apples with peanut butter, almond butter, are a carb and a protein, healthy fats in the peanut butter too..

Sometimes when I am hungry, I drink a 16 oz. glass of water right away, wait about ten minutes, to see if I am still THAT starving..

Good luck!
