    I don’t like feeling hungry also. The thing for me was… after the first week or so, my body really adjusted to eating my meals, and on time. I could tell lunch time was coming because my tummy would growl. Which is a good thing. I always felt full at lunch, before I would get to my fruit, hence the reason I would save it for a snack later. I also went from craving foods that weren’t the best for me, to craving things that were good for me.

    Hope this helps you, or at least gives you some ideas to try,

    Now this may be long, really long…

    Remember, to stay focused, and if you are naughty now and then, do not let it get you down… think long term.
    Now you’ll have good weeks 3,4, maybe 5 lbs. of weightloss,(especially if you have a high fat %) but you will also have weeks of none, or maybe even weight gain. Gain is not bad if your gaining muscle, because in the long run it will pay off.

    3500 calories= 1 lb.
    Now depending on your height, weight, and level of activity an average person (female)may burn 2200 cal. a day. So to maintain you weight you would eat 2200 cal. So if you are trying to lose weight you need to drop the calories and increase exercise (fat burning exercises… ride a bike or a brisk walk) But it isn’t this simple… because muscle is heavier than fat. If you drop your calorie intake too low (under 800) your body thinks it is being starved (which it is) and then your body will want to save the fat (it’s layer of protection) and will sacrifice the muscle. Plus it’s not like you can get on a treadmill and run a few hours till you’ve hit 3500 cal. burned and hop off and instantly weigh a pound less. Your body has to process it. Best bet: drop calories to around 1500 eat 3 healthy well balanced meals, don’t skip breakfast it is what gets your body started, drink at least 80 oz.of water, have 1 snack… like an apple, and a fat burning exercise (keep in the fat burning zone for at least 45 min) you should see great results fast in the beginning, but then it may slow, which is fine,because you may hit a plateau. Just switch things up a bit in your exercise routine to move out of it. Also yogurt… have a fat free yogurt with breakfast and lunch if you can, studies have shown that yogurt helps get rid of fat, and that 2 yogurts a day more than tripled the fat loss of those who had none, and 1.5 times more fat loss than those who had 1. Lifting weights is great too, it builds more muscle, which in turn burns more fat. Just remember muscle is heavier than fat so as you build it your weight may not go how you thought it would, so keep measurements, because sometimes the weight doesn’t change but the inches do.
    Eating advice- eat! try not to skip meals, passing on a meal really is not good. Stay away from sugar substitutes, splenda and stevia are fine.
    example-

    BREAKFAST

    1/2 cup cereal(hot or cold) with 1/3 cup skim milk OR 1/2 bagel OR 1/2 english muffin OR slice of toast OR 1 reduced fat waffle w/ 2Tbsp. sugar-free syrup
    AND
    Fresh fruit- 1/2 grapefruit OR 1 cup melon OR 1 small apple, orange, peach OR 1/2 cup of canned fruit in natural juices OR 1/2 cup fruit juice
    AND
    1 cup skim or 1%milk OR low-fat yogurt (100 cal. type… yoplait for example)
    AND
    1 Tsp. reduced fat margarine OR 2 Tsp. low sugar jelly OR 1 Tsp. fat-free cream cheese OR 1 Tsp nondairy creamer (if you like it in your coffee)
    AND
    water (always) you can have coffee or tea too

    Now this may seem like alot of food but it isn’t, it’s choices you can combine to have something different everyday.
    If you chose… lets say… Life cereal with milk, 1/2 cup of OJ (I like Topicana light and healthy), a yogurt, and coffee with creamer… you would have a pretty good breakfast that only has about 325 cal.

    Stay away from bacon and sausage for now,fast food and fried foods. I really love bacon, but if you are trying to lose weight, they will not help in any possible way. Once you have it your goal… that’s a different story, now and then is fine, because you are then trying to maintain, not lose.

    LUNCH

    2 slices of diet bread (I love Pepperidge Farm light style) OR 1/2 pita bread
    AND
    2oz. of skinless chicken OR turkey breast, OR 2oz. shrimp OR tuna (in water) OR 2 oz. fat free cheese OR 1 oz. lean roast beef, ham, OR low fat sandwich meat
    AND
    1 cup total of salad, veggies,or combo of both
    AND
    Fresh fruit OR canned (same as what you would have for breakfast, just not the juice option)
    AND
    1 Tsp. margarine or mayo OR 2 Tsp.peanut butter OR salad dressing (1 Tbs. regular or 2 Tbs. reduced-fat)
    AND
    1 Tsp.fat-free mayo OR salad dressing OR 1 Tbs. Ketchup OR 1 Tbs. mustard
    AND
    a drink… water is great, so is tea
    So now a lunch might look like this…
    a sandwich with, mustard, turkey, lettuce and tomato. Small salad with dressing (Kraft fat-free Caesar Italian), and a small apple. Now this meal may run you around 380-400 cal.
    Now if you don’t want the bread, just a salad make it a big one… say 3 cups total, but don’t forget to add your meat to it.

    SNACK
    Usually I have my apple from lunch here with some peanut butter (1 Tbsp) or a fat-free yogurt either way 100 cal.

    DINNER
    1/2 baked potato OR 1/2 cup pasta, rice,corn, peas, or mashed potato OR 1/2 a hot dog or hamburger bun OR slice of bread OR small roll
    AND
    4 oz. of fish, chicken breast, turkey breast, shrimp, scallops, or crab OR 3 oz. lean beef, pork, veal, lamb, salmon, or leanhamburger patty OR areduced-fat hot dog
    AND
    pick 2 of these- 1/2 cup cooked asparagus, beans, broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, spinach, summer squash, tomatoe sauce, or zucchini… a salad that totals 1 cup
    AND
    1 Tbs. fat-free margarine OR 1 Tbs. Salad dressing OR 2 Tbs. reduced fat salad dressing OR 1 Tbs. sour cream OR 1 Tbs. ketchup OR 1 Tbs. taco sauce OR 1/4 cup of salsa.
    AND
    drink… water… tea
    So now this meal may look like this
    1/2 cup of wild rice with grilled salmon, steamed asparagus tips, a small salad with dressing… and this would be about 370 cal.

    so lets see breakfast 325, lunch 400, snack 100, dinner 370 that totals right about 1200 cal. not too bad

    This may sound stupid but it worked for me. I just put out my normal meal then divided it in half and only ate half. That way you don`t have to miss out on anything. In no time at all you get used to the smaller meal. I lost over 2 stone in about 4 months….give it a try….Goood Luck.

    You can fill up and eat a lot of food huge quantity’s IF you choose WHAT it is you eat. Fresh fruit, salad with out dressings or cheese!!!! Veg, things like jacket potato, without the butter, cheese or creamy toppings! You can eat masses IF you choose to eat things without masses of calories in them. Raw carrots, etc. But obviously that sort of thing isn’t going to help if you hate all fruit, salad and veg!!

    Porridge, now its getting colder! That fills you up and stops you snacking later on in the morning….

    The best thing to do it to eat the food you LIKE but cook it in healthier ways. Grill things and don’t fry. Swap milk to skimmed, all dairy to non fat or low fat… you CAN eat filling things, like bread IF you don’t spread half an inch of butter over it! Then a heap of peanut butter!! Get calories wise. Adapt recipes.

    You can also use a lot of herbs and spices to liven things up. Root ginger, garlic, black pepper… fresh peppers. They all add taste.

    Throw away kids left overs immediately so you don’t end up eating it yourself!

    Keep a food diary so you can see what you eat and when, also keep a note of your mood at the time you ate. See if you use food to help your emotional state. See what you are eating and find your own “weak” points. Then you can try to work round that. Do you find it hard to resist food on an evening when in front of the TV? Get to know yourself and your current habits so you can work WITH not against yourself!

    Make sure you drink a lot of water as well. It helps fill you up, and keeps you hydrated. You also need to up the calories USED. Do more exercise so you use up more calories. If you have two small kids try taking them to the park and be as active as you can. Running round after kids CAN use up heaps of calories as does house work, chores and all the “mum-sey obligations” and “duty’s!”

    Best of luck. You an do it.

    Two website where you can “join” for free and there’s loads of info, calorie charts etc.

    Just reading some of the other reply’s. DO NOT SKIP MEALS. Someone said eat twice a day and skip meals. That is BAD advice. If anything eat more often, split the meals into smaller amounts. It helps to keep your blood sugar levels up. If you skip meals you end up with low blood sugar and then feel hungry and end up snacking on junk.

    Basic idea of losing weight is to reduce input (eating) and increase output (exercise/movement).

    Try to have all three meals a day, since skipping a meal would only force you body to go into “starvation mode”, where low metabolism lessens the effect of diet.

    On a similar note, try to reduce eating at late night, when your body has lower metabolism. I’ve put a padlock on my fridge and swallowed ice cubes instead, when I got that “urge”. (slight extreme measure?)

    Reduce the amount you eat in one seating, (No second helping) and cut down on insignificant but high calorie foods. Examples would be fizzy drinks, juice, alchols, sauce of any kind & most fried foods.

    Fruit, while a healthy alternative to Pork cracklings & Chocolates, still contains good deal of sugar themselves, and will effect you.

    Additionally, try to make your home a bit more “exercise-friendly”, so that you don’t have a situation where you are starving yourself while rest of your family is having a feast. Maybe trying to arrange a family picnic at park (with homemade sandwiches) on weekends would encourage exercises for whole family and work well for families.

    Of course, with you being a mum, it will be difficult to maintain an ordered dietary plans, but if you keep to ground rules, and keep working on it, I am sure you will be successful! 😉
