Are You Always Hungry? Eat A Lot Of Lettuce


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

It seems I am always wanting to put food in my mouth because I am either hungry or just out of pure habit. So what I have been doing is eating a whole head (yep) of lettuce a day. This helped me out incredibly. I get full from the water in the lettuce and crunch helps me know I ate.

I add a little salad dressing and some crackers (under 100 cals) so it's not all one note.

    I started eating a small head of lettuce through out the day and it really helped keep the hunger away between meals. Great secret, Thanks for posting.

    I read this on a thread the other day. A member said she eats it from a bag of assorted lettuces, and it satisfies her craving for crunchy foods.

i think I just may give this a try.
