Eat more protein. Protein takes longer to digest and keeps you feeling full longer. If you eat protein with each meal and snack, you probably won't be hungry all the time.

I second your comments. Also, increase fat intake in the mornings will help curb cravings...even the sweet ones.

short- I have noticed when I eat McDonalds or Hardees for breakfast esp. on the weekends, I won't eat for 5+ hours cuz I am not hungry and also I don't eat as much on the weekends. During the week when I am bored at my desk is when I eat the most.

Ah! I forgot about the hot beverage trick! I used to do that and it works pretty well, but somehow forgot. Thanks for the reminder (as I just poured myself some tea). Smile

So, increase protein intake to curb cravings? I've heard that before and I think I am lacking protein in my diet. How can I fix that easily? I don't cook, so generally my diet consists of raw fruits and veggies. I am not a vegetarian nor do I consider myself a "health nut"; it's just that I detest cooking. What's a good source of protein that doesn't require cooking? I've been eating almonds, a protein bar or powder after working out, and sometimes cheese. What else is good?

Can you fry or boil an egg? quick easy chicken only requires putting some chicken in a shallow pan, with pats of butter and garlic salt or lemon pepper and baking at 350 degrees for about 45 min. Easy and then you have them for the week. you can add to salads or have next to your cooked veggies

Ozzie, cottage cheese is a great no cooking needed protein source. So is canned tuna. It may take some adjustment, but I think the egg suggestion is a good one just because they are so much cheaper than other protein sources.

Thanks for the quick replies. I do boil eggs from time to time, but perhaps I should consider doing it more often. For dinner tonight I took up your suggestions and made scrambled eggs. Very Happy

Let's see if I can manage to force myself to cook some chicken. I know it doesn't take very long. It's just a matter of getting myself to actually do it. Wink

Tip 1: Try drinking a glass of water. Your brain can't determine the difference between whether or not you're hungry or thirsty. Often times I find when I think I'm starving, it turns out I'm actually just thirsty. Plus, those Dorritos don't sound quite as good after you have a belly full of sloshing water anyways!

Tip 2: Exercise. Exercise is a natural appetite suppressant. THIS one takes a lot of self control on my part, but I often find that it works.

I like fresh ground almond butter; in oatmeal,on whole wheat flax toast, on slices of apples; it's satisfying with both protein and healthy fat.

I've been reading about garbanzo beans being a great appetite suppressant. They are a great source of fiber and a good source of protein. I've increased my intake of water and added garbanzos to whatever I have for lunch. It's strange, but it works for me. I always said that I had a bottomless pit of a stomach b/c I never get full. The last couple weeks have drastically changed that though.
