Since I am the one to do all the cooking, I will eat a fruit or a salad before I begin cooking, I also have my daughter do the same (she is watching her weight too). By the time dinner is cooked I am not as hungry as I normally would be.
I find that I'm very hungry after work(I'm a cook and we can't eat while we're working on the line) so when I come home I drink a glass of water or two before I eat because I've found that often times I'm actually more thirsty than I am hungry. This helps me not to over eat and to rehydrate
I was really hungry last night and a bag of Sour Cream and Onion potato chips were just screaming at me. However, I decided to cook a can of string beans (french cut) instead. It took only 5 minutes and I was satisfied. When hungry for a snack its filling to grab fruit or in my case a can of veggies!
