I go by how hungry I am, and what I feel like eating later in the day.

If I'm still really hungry, then I assume that my body needs some extra calories for some reason, so I eat a normal dinner and even my usual snacks if I'm still hungry for them.

If I'm not very hungry, then I might just nibble on a balance of veggies / protein / nuts until I'm satisfied.

In my world, my body signals trump the "calorie range" in importance every time, so I just don't worry about it when I have the occasional day where I'm hungry enough to exceed the ranges.

Afraid of a colonoscopy? Believe me - they are much less frightening than surgery and chemotherapy.

Colonoscopies allow polyps to be removed before they can become cancer, or let cancers be found before they are too widespread. If you are 50 or older, or have any symptoms, please don't let fear stop you from covering your butt.

Get checked!

This has happened to me. I wait till I get hungry again, maybe 8pm and have one slice of cheese with a couple of organic seed crackers. It satisfies me and then I could sleep three hours later.

Very large, low calorie salad with lean fish or chicken breast.

What I do in this situation (especially if I've met my nutrient requirements) is just eat something very light - probably a salad with a SMALL amount of protein included, very low cal stuff, to keep calories at a minimum since I'm already over.

I can't NOT eat because then I get overly hungry, which can result in disaster!!!

Hope this helps.

I ran out of my daily caloric intake after a late lunch. I am in check with all the nutrient breakdown. So now what do I eat or do when I get hungry later tonight? I have some ideas but would love to read what others have done. Thanks!

BLINGQUEEN:O) sends you {{{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}}}} can you feel them? :O)
