puffed wheat

for cereal i'll put a cup of puffed wheat (50 cal) and top it off with another cereal like frosted flakes. The puffed wheat acts like a filler so I get more volume of cereal but less calories

Keep busy

I find when I'm busy I can go for a long time with out needing to eat much. When I'm child minding from 7:45am to 5pm I find I'm so occupied by the end of the day I've only eaten a few things (today I had a tomato with some sugar, 2 rice cakes and some cantelope) and I don't feel hungry
