You should eat protein (in the morning would be good, for example) and drink a lot of water (1.5-2L/a day) during the day! You could eat some eggs, fish or cheese, for example. They are healthy (depending of the quantity) and keep yourself from being hungry Smile Never skip a meal, always eat 3 times a day, even if you don't have so much time. Good luck!

I find that most of the time I eat, it's because i'm bored. Get out more, take your mind off food or even hop onto this site and get your head back into the right mindframe - to feel better about yourself Smile

Eating enough protein can make a huge difference in your hunger and random cravings.

Shirataki/Konjac/Konyaku noodles are great for bulking out broths and soups. 0 calories, pure fibre, and have a noodle texture. And they re 100% natural and eaten across SE Asia.

--edit: Thats the 100% konjac noodles, not the soy/konjac mixed noodles. The Soy versions are still very low calories too of course.

42" jeans(25/01/2013) 40"(28/02/2013) 38"(20/03/2013) 36"(25/05/2013)
Down from 60" waist jeans since June 21st 2012.

Still keeping to my 26" jeans, but they are too tight for comfort. too many tasty things in the US, and over Xmas.

Onwards and Downwards! Smile

A different view on things:

I have done this myself twice this week: Try to NOT eat between dinner one day and dinner the next. At all. Zip. Then have a tiny dinner, no more than 500 calories. No snacks that day. Next day, back to normal.

This is SURPRISINGLY easy, even if it sounds hard. It will show you a little more about hunger, and how surprised you will be when you realize that it doesn't keep getting worse. It gets to a certain point, and then slowly goes away again. Once you feel it, you will be much better at handling hunger.

what's gonna happen if we don't eat a few hours? Are we gonna starve to death? explode? I doubt it.

I never considered this until very recently, and it has COMPLETELY changed my perspective on things. It has taken away my desperation to get to my next meal.

Try it! It'll teach you something interesting. Smile


I completely agree with this. I find it much easier to eat nothing at alltwice a week than to restrict myself every day. Hunger does not keep getting worse if you don't eat. It just goes away for several hours. Google Michael Mosely 5:2 for more info.

Calories do not fill a person up. Volume in the stomach not calories make a person feel full. Eat all the vegetables and whole fruit you want. Eating more of the right foods is the way to go. There is no reason to ever be hungry.

Scales at home
I finally got a new scale that matches the doctor's office exactly. I would just use the weight on the scale at home and know that the doctor's office will show more OR get a new scale - but it ...

Climbing my way out of a very deep sorrow
Losing weight is so hard, even when life is going perfectly. My hat's off to all of you who soldier on through life's trials and tribulations.

BMR with activity factor
“Technically” yes. 1400 calories is a good number for you to start with. We don’t know how much you actually burn. The number FS gives you is approximation and it tends to be on the high side. Still with ...
