I agree with plenty of water and protein. But if this has been a drastic change for you especially if you have been eating processed foods with lots of sugar your body is probably detoxing and craving those things. Don't give up hang in there. I always have found it takes about 3 days to adjust with a drastic change. Good luck. Your are doing a very good thing for yourself.
eat 5 or 6 times a day. combine a protein and a carb. More carbs in the morning and more protein as you reach evening. Carbs are good for energy. I have found a cleanish cookie and a cup of green tea to be a great snack to hold off hunger in the afternoon. Drink your water!

I started Eating Clean yesterday! DH and I planned out our menus and went shopping and cleaned the processed stuff out of our cupboards.
Today is my first "work day" while on plan. I've been doing really well all day, and I brought lots of healthy snacks.
While I am getting used to eating at regular intervals, I find myself getting hungry in between meal times. For instance, I ate dinner (a huge stuffed pepper and an orange) about 90 minutes ago, and I already feel hungry again. My next break and snack is about an hour away. I had lots of protein before, so I'm not sure why this is.
It's not a terrible feeling, but did anyone experience this when they first started eating clean? Is it just my body getting used to not being stuffed with junk at all times?
