gamerlover:  I’m in a similar situation. My metabolism is crazy fast so I never needed to diet and I actually have to remind myself to eat so my blood sugar doesn’t get low. I’ve found that food with more protein tends to stay with me longer so I don’t get as hungry. When I eat a ton of carbs (which I love love love) my blood sugar spikes and drops and then I am starving a couple of hours later. Anyway, I have a protein bar for breakfast each morning (I’m not a morning person, it’s just easy and I’m full until lunch), lunch is usually dinner leftovers. I’ll have a snack like another protein bar, some hummous and veggies, yogurt in the mid afternoon. DInner is usually chicken sausage or boneless skinless chicken breast with veggies and small amount of starch. My DH does all the cooking but he’s good about changing it up even with the same protein every day. So we might have a stir fry one day, chicken sausage and peppers the next, baked chicken breast with spices, etc etc. I’ve found that eating smaller amounts of protein-rich foods 4 or 5 times a day keeps me full and keeps my energy from flagging and maintains/I lose a bit of weight.

I’m sure you’ve heard all the exercise helps depression and (obv) weight loss blah blah blah already. I’m a lazy POS myself and don’t work out, but it’s always an option as well. 🙂
