Water Vs. Coffee

This Sparked Me!

Drinking water or coffee.
My trick for not eating much is that first cup of coffee in the morning. It satisfies me and I am not hungry. When I am at work I drink most of my 8-8oz. glasses of water and then some. That fools my brain to, makes it think I am not hungry.

    Sharing this secret made me glad since I'm using the same technique though unintentionally for quite some time...

    I agree with Lori. You really do need a little protein at each meal. Also, I find high fibre foods are really good fillers and stave off the hunger very nicely. Try some raspberries or strawberries. Even 1/2 c. of brown rice. Couple that with a bit of protein and you're good to go.

    Although delaying eating for a little while is helpful. It is setting yourself up to be overly hungry when you do eat. Eating a small amount of protein works to you benefit.

    It does work the same for me. emoticon
