Just be sure to gradually increase your fiber intake, or you could have some less than pleasant days ahead :)

Thanks everyone for the great tips. Today I didn't seem to has a big of a problem with hunger...I did work out today, maybe that has something to do with it. I'm definitely going to try to add more fiber to my diet, it's needed according to my nutrition reports.

I like to munch on carrots or celery. Since they are really crunchy they take longer to eat and my body thinks I'm eating more. Your body could just be adjusting to new habits too.

You may try incorporating 6 small meals per day as opposed to 3 main meals. Increase in Fiber is good and I use cottage cheese as my go to if I need more protein but need to watch my fat.

That's great about all the veggies and other smart choices!

As for the hunger, I always go for some high-fiber food to help. I find a fiber-rich cereal and use it as a snack or a topping. You may also want to look at other things you are eating, such as diet soda, that may contribute to your body looking for extra food.

Exercise is important with helping curb the hunger. A rule of thumb that dietitians use is that your body is going to want approximately 10 times your weight in calories. But, to lose one pound a week, that number is cut by 500 calories. However, that is without exercise so, if your hungry on the reduced caloric intake, have a small snack of 100-200 calories but make sure you add exercise that day equal to or exceeding that amount. It is more effective if you include that snack within 30 minutes of completing aerobic exercise. The bottom line is if you exercise, you can eat a little more, take care of the hunger pangs, and still lose weight.

I have found that tracking my fiber intake really curbs the hunger. Okay, well it's not the tracking that does it - it's the making sure I'm eating enough fiber. You can add it as something you track on the nutrition page. I understand bread being an issue - but you might want to consider whole grains - tons of fiber in them. Meaning brown rice, whole grain bread, etc. It helps with the feeling full - at least it has for me. Good luck!

Are you getting your nutrition report at the end of the day? It is under your my nutrition tracker. It has great ideas if you are not getting enough of something. Do you have time to do any form of exercise to keep your mind off your hunger? Best wishes emoticon emoticon

So I have changed my diet since joining SP but I have yet to really incorporate exercise. I am eating leaner foods, much MORE veggies and fruits, and really cut bread out of my diet. Bread is my nemesis, I LOVE bread. This being said I am HUNGRY! All the time! I eat and an hour or so later I'm hungry again, I mean stomach growling hungry. Today I am at 1462 calories of 1220-1570 calories for the day. It's been about 2 hours since dinner and I'm HUNGRY! What do I do? Am I not eating enough protein, need more carbs? What?! I am drinking, lots. Please help.

Delighting in HIS grace,
Elaina
