I agree...get more protein and fiber to keep hunger away.

I love all things unhealthy; fatty, greasy, salty, sugary... all absolutely wonderful! But I know that those foods are horrible for me and won't get me where I want to be health-wise, so I reserve them as occasional treats in very small amounts.

High protein and high fiber foods will help you avoid hunger cravings. Drinking more water/tea helps too. Pay attention to your cravings and see if they're really due to hunger, or something else. Emotional or boredom eating can sabotage you in a hurry!

Tracking your food will help you get a handle on just how damaging giving in to those cravings can be, and allow you to build in those treats on occasion. Sometimes giving in to a craving in a small way can prevent an all out binge.
I wish nutrition facts included the number of exercise minutes required to work off a serving, that would be a great deterrent for me!

Good luck!

I LOVE me some high calorie foods but I know they're not good for me. They're ok as occasional snacks but if you're eating them too often it's not good.

Life is for living!

Don't let yourself down.

I absolutely relate! For instance: on my way home from work tonight, I ate 9 mini Hershey bars. 1.5 hours later, I went for a 3.4 mile run. How random, right? I have an issue with binge eating, especially sweets. It's a struggle, but I'm not going to let it sabotage me anymore tonight. I'll reset my eating in the morning. Oh! And I am going to try and eat more snacks, healthy snacks every 3 hours.
