One way to cut the calorie intake is to eat something filling for breakfast. I have always heard this but did it this morning. I had oatmeal with cut up apple in it (double fiber foods) and some brown sugar. The whole meal was like 350 which I usually don't like to do right off the bat in the morning but I wasn't hungry until lunch.
It really DID fill me up!!! Now I just ate a tiny Michelina frozen dinner and still feel full!
So definitely try to find foods that can fill you up. I work from 8A until 9P 2 days a week and I plan to eat a big bowl of chili for lunch those days so I won't be starving at the end of the day. I usually get fast food on my way home those nights because I haven't eaten in 8 to 9 hours (no break except 1/2 hr at 4:30 to get from one job to the next)but hoping the filling foods will help with the hunger.

Another way they say to cut calories is by eating 4 or 5 small meals a day rather than 3 big ones. Our bodies are not made for big meals. We aren't snakes! lol
I know that is not always feasible, such as my days that I work both jobs, but when you can, try to eat 4 400-500 calorie meals or 5 300-400 calorie meals rather than 3 big ones. Let me know if any of this is helpful!!!
