It is less than 1000 cals. Hardly a lot of food. But quite a change for many people not used to eating an appropriate amt of veggies

I bought a ton of soup when I started and as it turns out I really hate just about all of them! I have a sweet coach who let me trade them in on some other things but I encourage you to try lots of things because everyone is so different in their taste... most seem to find their favorites and stick with them... which I kind of do... I try to have a variety on hand at all times in case I feel like something different.... and pickles... always have giant pickles in my fridge... if you ever do get hungry you'll be thankful for a pickle to get you through!!

The soups (mostly mushroom & cream of chicken) were my go-to workday lunches for my first 6 months OP. I puréed veggies to add (didn't much care for the soups plain). Took it all in a thermos b/c I don't always have microwave access (I travel). I quit the soups when I quit soy but they served me well for months!

Try the pina colada, orange, etc. drinks too - they go down pretty easy and are pretty light. I find using ice cold water or pouring them into a frozen pounder to drink really helps too.

ha! I find myself dreaming of things as well. oh, the little things. For breakfast lately i've been eating the IP Maple Oatmeal. I add different flavors to it and love it! This AM was cinnamon and nutmeg. Tasted like fall. I tried making plain muffins out of them too, but they were a bit dry. I think the oatmeal needs the moisture of the zucchini to make a good muffin. Unless I should add an entire egg instead of just the white? Anyone have experience in the oatmeal muffin department?

I'm going to explore the recipe thread for something that may work.

I've been noticing in the last week or so that I've been more hungry. I've been having two big bowls of romaine at lunch and dinner to take up some stomach space and bumped my water up to 80-84 ox/day. I know I'm getting at least 4c of veggies a day and my oil, salt and supplements. Has anyone else experienced increased hunger ~1month into IP?

Good Morning All... Question.... What is the issue with green/wax beans being on the Occasional Veggie List - Yet, turnips, which seem so much more "carbby" than beans are not. I'm not complaining because I love turnips but this seems odd to me and I would love to learn the logic behind the green bean 'snub'.... because I love them too....

I'm 9 weeks in so not quite the same, but I am STARVING this morning. I'm seriously considering eating my lunch, and it's only 10:15. I'm approaching TOM, so I'm chalking the hunger up to that (in addition to the extra pound on the scale this morning).

Trinny...I feel your pain. I am always so much hungrier before TOM. Herbal tea with some splenda has saved my life time and time again.

Yes, tea... lots of tea! Not sure why those hungry days come and then (for me) they disappear and I'm fine for quite awhile again... hang in there!

congrats sunflwr!!!! That's so great!

In regards to hunger, it comes and goes for me. I chug lots and lots of tea. Sometimes I throw in a pickle or two.

Does anyone use a fitness monitor like fitbit? looking at purchasing one to motivate/track what I do on a daily basis. What's cool about the fitbit zip is that it syncs with MFP.
