Seems a snack ready to go after school is a common suggestion. I try to include a fiber bar as well - helps fill me up (drink water with it.)

Hi and Welcome! I also have a snack on the way home - usually almonds or trail mix with various nuts and dried fruit (measured into a snack size bag). It also helps to have somethng crunchy sometimes such as baby carrots or pepper strips. As frequently as possible, I take my dog for a walk as soon as I get home, and I have my supper planned ahead of time.

I am also a high school teacher and the drive home is brutal since I am usually hungry and sleepy. I also pack a snack for the ride home and I drink a ton of water. I usually have my almonds and a piece of fruit and again a ton of water! You can do it! Also, if possible, make dinner as soon as you get home. We have dinner by 5:00-5:30 which was a big change from our usual 7:00 dinnertime. But this helps with our overeating and our snacking in the evening. Good luck!

Teachers are like candles. They consume themselves in order to light the ways for others.

Hi Laurie! I have had the same problem. I eat a healthy snack before I leave school (one I packed). You could eat it when you get home instead if that works better. Sometimes I found I wasn't that hungry, I just wanted to munch on something. Kind of a reward for making it through the day. I eat 5-6 small meals so I don't usually get to the point of starving unless I miss one. I pack everything and don't eat any school food. Good luck!

Hello! I have been experimenting with SparkPeople since October and am now ready to put my full effort into it. I have put on weight over the past 8 years due to age, stress, and quitting smoking. I am looking forward to losing in 2012!

I am a high school science teacher. The most difficult time of day for me is when I get home. I feel very hungry and eat a lot of high carb snack to fill up and relax. Does anyone have any suggestions to help me curb this?

Thanks Krys for your welcome.

Laurie
