I always feel hungry after I eat oatmeal. I know some people swear by it as a satisfying food but it has never worked for me. Different things work for different people so it may be time for you to do a few science experiments and see if you can find a combination that works for you.
I pretty much always feel like I can eat. I have a bottomless appetite, and really toning but pure will and discipline has been able to fix that. For genuine hunger, though, what works best for me is two things. For meals, bulking up the meal with heaping portions of tasty vegetables so I have a lot of volume for my calorie buck. And for snacks, making sure to have a good mix of protein and fiber - for example, Greek yogurt plus a sliced apple.
As I said, I pretty much always have appetite no matter what I eat. But the above strategies help me satisfy actual hunger.
High weight: 275 (August 2009) *** Low weight: 155 (October 2012)
Today, working off a partial regain. Current weight: 175.
* Make the best choice I can make, with every choice.
* Remember that the temptation in front of me is not the last of its kind that I will ever see; say "I'll pass today."
* Say "no!" to my whiny inner five-year-old.
