Teaspoon of peanut butter and water. The peanut butter works really well for me for some reason too. Was a huge help in the beginning stages of my weight loss.

I allow myself a snack every now and then, but nothing too outrageous.

I haven't really done anything to lose weight but to look at my calorie intake, but as one goes for a long time, one starts to notice how things affect us.

What everyone said is right. Protein, fat and fiber will fill you up. It'll make you feel more full and satisfied.

However, I think it's important to point out the opposite too - carbs will make you feel more hungry - fast! If you get hungry and go for white bread, or products with sugar (and everything else heavy on carbs), odds are that you'll end up feeling MORE hungry, so watch out for those.

If you can, go for a slice of ham, an egg, cheese, and other products heavy on protein. Just remember that they often will cost some on the calories. They're worth it though, as you don't end up binging on MORE carbs. Smile

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

Try an avocado as well. They are filling and also they are classed as a super food for fat burning!! I try to eat at least 4 per week.

Google avocado weight loss and see for yourself....

Kingkeld I have been spying on your diet calendar and must ask the question: HOW in the world do you keep your calorie intake so low?? I am impressed as heck and jealous too! The cravings (sometimes I think they are completely mental but I'm not sure) drive me crazy in the afternoons and I am all over this peanut butter idea. But I can't imagine maintaining the low calories like you do. Is it a matter of adjusting to it over time? Do tell.

Wasabi peas provide a low-fat snack and quick fuel for energy. A handful of wasabi peas amounts to about 120 calories. Trader Joe's and Walgreens.

Have a hard boiled egg...Eggs Are Loaded with Nutrients & lots of vitamins

Cottage Cheese and a handful of Matchstick carrots, flaxseeds

1/2 Avocado with stuffed crabmeat 4 ounces crabmeat with mayo on a bed of lettuce about 6 carbs

An Apple, which is a good source of soluble and insoluble fiber
33 cups of Air-popped popcorn (no salt, no butter)Popcorn has many vitamins and minerals and 3 cups of air-popped is only 99 calories

Pear and 1 ounce of light Brie about 120 Calories

Whole Grain Cocktail Rye Bread, 3-ounce pull-top can Chicken of the Sea Chunk Light Tuna in Water, chop 3 grape tomatoes and a little cucumber or red onion...make me full for a long time

10 baby Carrots with Ranch Dressing

Protein...Pumpkin seeds are especially high in protein, low in calories and fat. Sunflower seeds have protein & almonds are particularly high in protein. Pepitas 1 Ounce has 8 Grams of protein making them a smart snack or salad addition. Pepitas are already shelled pimpkin seeds. Barley has good protein and helps keep you full add to soups, salads,brown rice dishes...also quinoa and kasha which are extremely high in protein...Fage 0% plain Yogurt, cottage cheese, flaxseeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds

3 slices of Deli roast beef is around 150 calories
6 Slices of Shaved Oscar Mayer Turkey Breast 50 calories...


Just some ideas

Have a treat and exercise more!!! I eat a healthy diet but never deny myself any treat, I just add extra time in the gym! It works! Also any diet that restricts food and doesn't include exercise will NOT WORK in the long run. Good Luck!! : )

I found I do better when I have lots of options and alternates on hand.
I live in a country where there is very little actual diet food, like in the US, so I have to find my own substitutes. There are low cal bars (55-59 cal) so I buy a bunch of those, to have as an afternoon snack with tea or coffee (3% milk), so that I won't dip into the goodies I have for the kids. It really helps, because they taste fine, and I've lowered my expectations. I don't find that a cup of broth helps, because I want to chew and crunch. If I know I'm going to have a treat or eat out, I plan for this by eating less that day, and the next. A slice of pizza can be dinner (with salad), not a late night treat. And so on. If you live in the US, there are unlimited substitutes, skinny cow, etc. The key is planning ahead what you are going to eat and when, and not eat what comes to hand, or haphazardly. If I want a cookie or pretzel, its one cookie or 3 pretzels, not eating randomly out of the bag.

Try the fast metabolism diet out now by Haylie Pomroy. It helps greatly to curb cravings. I lost
13 lbs in one month. The secret is eating rotationally and eliminating sugar. You eat great food and lots of it.

Just a teaspoon of peanut butter? No bread or cracker?
I love peanut butter, but thought for the calories, there's something more filling to eat, or more satisfying.

I prefer 1/2 a serving of unsalted peanuts as opposed to the peanut butter, just because chewing also helps me get through a craving.
I'm back on track!

If did it once, I can do it again!
