As others have said: more protein (any beans and if you don't like the texture, puree them and they just make the soup a bit thicker), plus I add two Wasa multigrain crackers (calorie total comes to 88) because they seem to help the liquid soup feel more filling.

The soup had a bit of leftover turkey in it (from Christmas).
next time I'll add in the protein!

I agree with Darlene...protein is the key. Fiber is good too. I don't think soup would fill/hold anyone. Water before, during, and after dinner helps, too!

It would be better if you had a protein as your main item so you would feel fuller and
it would last a lot longer....like grilled chicken, then have the soup as a side.....

The only soup that sticks to me is Davids' home made Chicken/fresh veggie and it is
more like stew.............

Just my 2 cents for what it's worth.

I think I would either go with another 1/2 cup of soup at dinner or eating some Greek Yogurt with dinner (I find the little bit of sweet and the higher protein and calcium helps me feel full longer). You might also try something crunchy and high fiber with dinner (celery, bell peppers, apple).

For me it is better to eat a bit more at dinner and mentally close the kitchen after.

Also drinking herbal hot tea in the evening helps me to feel less hungry. I have several varieties in the house so I don't get bored, it helps me to be drinking water, it is calorie free, and some have nutrition value (decaf green for example has antioxidants).

Your could also add crackers, extra beans, veggies to the soup and give it more substance. soup never holds me so I add a sandwich or something else.

I really don't know what the right answer is...but based on what you said - You may have been better to go with an extra 1/2 portion. Once the quest to feel full begins things can quickly get out of hand. Perhaps eating a little more and feeling fuller sooner will mean less calories in the long run....

I measured out a serving of soup for dinner. Within an hour I was "starving" again.
So I had Act II Fat Free popcorn. That didn't satisfy me. So I started hunting for another healthy snack. I had about 3/4 cup of grapes. I waited to see if I would feel full; by 9 pm I had a Skinny Cow snack.

My question: is it better to eat another half serving at dinner? or should I limit myself at dinner and hope the hunger subsides?
I'm still hungry now...I have days when I'm much hungrier than others, but I'm committed to not going over my calorie count.

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your srength and all your might. Love your neighbor as yourself.
