On my more active days, I have a hard time feeling full, after a 500 calorie dinner. Has anyone come across an easy to prepare meal, that really does the trick? Thanks in advance Smile

Loads of veggies - Large salad w/ balsamic vinegar. Spaghetti squash, zucchini, green beans, broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, edamame, asparagus - take your pick. I use fresh when possible, but also will use the steamfresh by birds eye or green giant - the ones without sauces. I will microwave and then add my own low calorie sauce. Shirataki noodles are low calorie (found in vegan section of grocery store).

I like to have a big dinner and will often have a salad and 3-4 servings of veggies. I never go over 500 calories for dinner, but leave room for an almond milk milkshake in the evening.

I often get comment like "I've never seen someone eat so many vegetables". I love my veggies and I love to eat, so I fill up on them. It helps that it takes me 30-45 minutes just to finish my dinner. I eat a ton of veggies for lunch too, but also usually have a sandwich or something else too.

Have you tried some of the recipes on this website? I've been making some of them, and then I'll make a salad or rice to go with it! If your entree is around 300 calories, there's nothing stopping you from having a big salad (luv veggies! low calorie foods! Smile ) or even something starchy(I <3 potatoes!)... depending on what type of plan you're following!

Split it into 2 or 3 courses. A smooth vegetable soup such as carrot. Followed by a salad with minimal dressing. Followed by a vegetable stew over Cauliflower 'rice'.

Make the soup and stew in advance and freeze in portions. Then all you have to do is Assemble your salad and process your 'rice'. Everything else just needs heating up.

I have done tomato/veggie soups many times. They're super delish. Basically a ton of chopped up veggies (use the low cal ones, like onion, mushroom, celery, peppers etc.), and add canned/fresh tomato. I get about 300 grams of soup - and absolutely reasonable portion - for 81 calories according to my last calculation. You could eat almost 4lbs of this within 500 calories. Would that be enough? Very Happy

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.
