I start out with at least 20grams of protein in the morning about a half hour after wakeing up. Throughout the day I eat lots of protein in fish, chicken, and nectar sweets protein drink along with my vegetables. I try to get at least 100grams of protein a day, this keeps me much more satisfied, plus increases my energy. I'me not as hungry either when I have extra protein.
I've also been without anykind of wheat product for over a month now, I really helps to control hunger because wheat actually spikes your blood sugar. I've noticed since I've gone off wheat my blood pressure has gotten back to normal. Yea! I think this is something I can live with.

Carry a protein bar to stave off hunger. Or if you can, a protein drink.
I always have water and a protein bar in my bag. I just got protein powder packets to carry too. This helps me noteat fast food if I'm out running errands or doing things. It tides me over until I get home where I can eat a healthy meal.
