This is going to break me. I'm watching my food intake but I'm struggling at work. I'll eat two packets of lower sugar oatmeal in the am and my lunch (tuna salad sandwich or can of soup) and usually a yogurt and either cuties or baby bell cheese for snacks (two snacks). But holy hell am I hungry by about 3-4. (I eat breakfast around 7, one snack around 10:30-11, lunch 12 or 12:30, and another snack about 2-2:30. By the time my work day is winding down I want to chew on my desk. I drink my 8 glasses (or more) of water too. But mid afternoon my stomach starts growling and gets really mean!
I have got to find a way to better tweak my diet to not go over my calories but still not want to eat Little Red Riding Hood. Especially since right after work is the gym and the last thing I need is to be dealing with hunger pangs while working out. I'd slip a protein bar or something in there but then I worry that will send my calories over.
I know part of the reason is I have to reserve so many calories for dinner because I'm still trying to make family meals work with what I need.
