@sunkissed19:  Just wanted to say I commiserate :-/ Strongly flavored teas (chai/ginger) seem to help me, especially with night munchies. Lifestyle changes are great, I definitely want to be healthy, but who are we kidding, this sucks sometimes. When the FI heats up a pizza after we ate hours ago, or breaks out the cookies and sits there scarfing 3/4 of the bag (and still manages to not gain an ounce), I want to lovingly throw my tea at him.

@sunkissed19:  I feel your pain.  We are less then 3 months away from our wedding and I am battling the last 5 pounds.  FI actually has way farther to go but a lot less self control.  The worst thing is when he brings diet soda into the house.   I can’t resist a diet cherry DP.  Of course, it has no calories but lots of other offenders, not to mention, it primes my tastebuds to crave evil things like M & M’s (my recent cryptonite).  Stay strong!!!

Fiber pancakes to the carb craving rescue! 

• 1 cups dry rolled oats
• 2 eggs 
• 1/3 cup low-fat milk 
• 1 tsp / 5 ml baking powder 
• 1 tsp / 5ml vanilla 
• Cooking spray

• Fruit (optional)

Put them all in a blender and puree to make the batter. Then fry ’em up. They’re awesome!

You are hungry bc you need protein. Munch on almonds during the day, add things like oatmeal, protein powder or Quiona to smoothies. If you try to eat more fiber rich foods, Rahway will help too. And remember, cucumbers and celery are mostly made of water so you burn more calories eating them than calorie intake.

@sunkissed19:  I’m always hungry. It blows! I also get in hunger rages, where I’m just so famished that I’m likely to rip my poor FI’s head right off if he gets between me and the fridge [slightly exaggerated, but still…].

@RunnerBride13:  I second the veggies! I just had a whole bag of steamable broccoli florets (3.5 cups) and scrambled it with 4 egg whites, seasoned with garlic. 205 calories, 24 grams protein. It is a LOT of food, volume wise. Totally satisfying 🙂

@sunkissed19:  I just posted a thread about this last week. I’m doing the exact same thing and days when I don’t exercise much I struggle with being SOO hungry, as I am trying to eat just under my supposed daily calorie needs in order to lose weight. 

 

Some good tips people gave me in that thread (other than the usual drink lots of water thing):

 

Eat lots of lean protein (my favorite source is nonfat Greek yogurt)

 

Eat lots of veggies, especially celery, cucumbers, and other non-sweet vegetables– they make great filling snacks

 

If you drink caffeinated things, drinking coffee or several cups of tea each day really helps. I use skim milk in my coffee instead of half and half, but discovered that it is TOTALLY NOT worth using artificial sweeteners as they make me sick.

 

A few nuts, like almonds, make good snacks.

 

Also, if you are using MyFitnessPal or a similar app for tracking food and exercise, I think the default number of calories they give you per day (for me, it was 1200) is too low. That makes you stress unnecessarily about eating too much, and also contributes to being super hungry. I raised my daily limit (before exercise) to 1300 calories and find that far easier to sustain.

 

And finally, perhaps you can ask your SO to not scarf massive amounts of stuff you can’t have in front of you! And if you cook healthier meals, get him to eat them with you rather than eating things you can’t share. That way hopefully he’ll get a little healthier too!

 

 Oops, duh, I see you didn’t want advice. . . I guess advice was my automatic response. :/ 

Yes, it is ssooooo hard and aggravating sometimes!!! I often end up eating dinners that are kind of too big, just because I am SO hungry! It’s a heck of a lot easier if I exercise a lot because then I can actually eat as much I want to!
