I've been eating healthier and exercising more for 3 weeks now, and although I'm starting slow (only 30-40min exercise a day for 3-4 days a week) so I don't immediately get burned out, I was really hoping to see some
minor results. I haven't, and I think I can attribute that to the fact that at the end of the day I'm SO hungry! I've been eating larger meals in the morning, and smaller more frequent meals/snacks at night. My problem is that my hubby and I worked nights for so long that we are in the habit of eating dinner when I get home from work--about midnight. Since I'm eating a smaller dinner than I used to, I have time to squish it in right before I go to work, and have a small snack (like a cup of grapes) while at work so I shouldn't be hungry. But my tummy thinks it's time to eat when I get home...so I start with something small, lest I can't get to sleep for all the growling going on. Then I eat something else. Then just one more thing....etc.
Ok, blah blah blah...Is there an appetite suppressant out there that isn't also an energy pill/drink so I can help myself get into a "routine" of not eating and being hungry at night? I've tried taking sleeping pills or filling myself up with water and going straight to bed when I get home--which ends up with me waking up in the middle of the night still hungry and with a full bladder
