I'm starting to think this is hopeless. I'm trying to eat healthier BUT I stay hungry all the time. Even when I eat a big meal, 30 minutes later I'm hungry.

Today at lunch I had a piece of sirloin steak, carrots and an apple 25 minutes ago. Now I'm hungry again. I get extremely ill tempered when I'm hungry which is not good for my job. When I first got hungry after lunch today, I went outside to walk a little, thought that might take my mind off my growling belly - didn't work.

The same thing happens to me after breakfast and in the evenings after I eat dinner. I've tried eating smaller meals and having a bigger snack but that doesn't help either.

WHAT DO I DO NOW? I know I will not succeed if this continues.

    Have you ever considered sharing your food & exercise trackers? Then others could see what you are eating and try to offer suggestions on different choices that might help you feel more full and full longer.

    Some tips I use when I am feeling hungry are:

    1. Drink lots & lots of water. Water always helps me feel full. When I am hungry, and I know it is not yet time to eat, I will drink 32 ounces of water. That fills my tummy and helps me last longer without eating. I also alternate between drinking cold & warm water.

    2. Have low calorie snacks at work. I allow myself the opportunity to have snacks in the morning & the afternoon, so I don't go hours without eating. My snacks are also low calorie, so I can eat more of them. Think things like carrots or blueberries, where I feel like I am eating a lot.

    I do also wonder, how many calories do you try to eat in a meal? Depending on how large the steak was, it doesn't sound like your lunch was super high in calories. Perhaps you aren't eating enough?
