It took me a long time, the first month I had terrible cravings especially in the evenings. I think it was partly my body adjusting, partly learning to combine protein and bulky veggies properly so I felt full.
And also I think I learned to pay attention to when I really was hungry, which is the most surprising change to me. So yes, there are some days when I really don't feel hungry for dinner at the end of the day, especially if I've had a big lunch or afternoon snack with a lot of protein like yogurt. And then I actually DON'T EAT. I would never have believed that three or four months ago.
Also, I went out for dinner last night and had french fries and half a hamburger, which I haven't had in months, and OMG I think it did something to my, erm, digestion. Which hasn't been affected by 35g of fiber every day, but somehow has been by some buttered grilled burger and fries. I ate the second half of the hamburger for dinner today ... it was good and I didn't want to waste it. I hope it wasn't a mistake though.
