grilling meat most nights and adding some filling vegetables. i have learned to love Lima beans, corn on the cob, steamed broccoli, potatoes with 0 calorie butter spray, field peas, fresh tomatoes. It all feels you up and you feel good about what you ate. I love grilled pork chops dip in franks hot sauce. Yum:0

I usually have 3 meals a day- breakfast, lunch and dinner. No snacks. I think its a great idea to have a reasonably heavy lunch and a lighter dinner (still within the daily calorie limits). A lighter dinner essentially helps to starve the body throughout the night (at least 8-10 hours). Starving the body during the daytime is almost impossible and can lead to snacking. Nighttime sleep is a golden opportunity designed by nature to starve the body :)
Identify your worst 'snack time' and use it for Fitness Minutes instead
Late afternoons, I would snack while fixing dinner -- usually filling up before dinner was ready, but I'd still eat a full dinner. Now I go to the gym or take a walk during the time dinner is cooking and get a double benefit! Fewer calories in, More calories burned!
