I took a look at your diet log... My feeling is you are not generally choosing very nutritious foods. Your body is craving nutrients that you're not getting from more fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains, low fat dairy. Your protein is on the low side, more protein from lean sources (not high saturated fat/cholesterol) will keep you full longer because it takes longer to diegest.
Besides that, the things you are eating are calorie dense oz per oz. You could eat more with less calories without eating "diet food" just healthy food!
good options, also my dietician highly recommends a food scale:
oatmeal, low sugar
1-2 whole eggs with 2-3 egg whites omelette with vegetables
chicken breast, no skin in stir fry veggies with a flavorful soy sauce based sauce
soups with a broth/water base and lean meat and lots of veggies!
cottage cheese with 1/2c berries
greek yogurt, (thick and delicious! great with some berries or 1/4c granola)
extra lean ground turkey (think chili, soup, red sauces)
including more of these kinds of food will keep you full!
I hope this helps you and anyone else who might be facing similar issues
also, someone mentioned the 6 meals, I do that too!
