@sweetchiquita12:  Thisthisthisthisthis!

The best thing I ever did for my diet is drinking water. I drink 120oz day (60-90oz on non-gym days), and I am NEVER hungry.

@audrey_lane:  It really makes a big difference in the hunger department! I have a water bottle at my desk that I use to fill a cup up and I fill up the bottle about 4 times a day so thats alot of water hence alot of going to the bathroom!

@audrey_lane:  Chia seeds help me – I throw them in everything from smoothies and yogurt to quinoa and oatmeal.

To be honest, I don’t think you’re eating enough, and if you’re feeling hungry, that’s probably a safe bet.

1200 calories is a standard set by the WHO as the absolute minimum a woman can eat without being malnourished.  If you’re eating below that, or netting below that on exercise days, you may not be giving your body enough energy to repair itself after working out. 

New foods to try may be eggs or peanut butter.  To fill up more, high fiber and high protein foods will keep you fuller longer.

@audrey_lane:  if you’re working out that much you need to be eating WAY more than 1200 calories (unless you mean your net calories after working out are 1200).  If you’re only eating 1200 and then buring 500-600 you’re basically starving yourself.

I eat smallportions but the snacks and meals I choose are high in protein. I get a lot fuller longer from eating a handful of almonds than a whole bag of carrots.

@audrey_lane:  What I found works for me is having a big cup of that Trader Joe’s organic free range chicken broth. I heat up a cup in the microwave before I eat my normal lunch, and I feel that it makes me feel heavy minus the calories (a cup is like 30 cals or something) so my lunch of salad/proteins fills me up more. It basically tricks me into thinking I had a huge meal and hence, I’m not so hungry in the afternoon/evening.

@audrey_lane:  the thing is, you say your metabolism is slow, but if you’re not eating enough your body thinks you’re starving and therefore you don’t lose weight as well.  You may actually need to eat MORE to get the results you want.  I use My Fitness Pal to track my food in and calories burned, I find it really helpful.  They also work out how many calories to eat if you want to lose 1lb a week, 2lbs etc.

@audrey_lane:  I agree on the water! That always helps.

Also, I get sick of veggies too and I think sometimes it is that they aren’t comforting and I crave comfort food. In that case I make a pureed veggie soup. I just add whatever veggies I want, some vegetable/beef/chicken broth, and loads of spices. You can have a huge bowl for very few calories and it is super filling and comforting. I think just the warmth helps me not think I am just eating more veggies. 

I also find this interesting reading regarding starvation mode. I use MFP also and avoid the forums like the plague because everyone talks about starvation mode and it never made sense to me. This makes more sense to me: http://www.aworkoutroutine.com/starvation-mode/
