This has happened to me the past few days. I feel great, not hungry at all for most of the day. Late afternoon I am suddenly famished and can't wait for dinner. I end up eating like 2 smaller dinners in order to make it through the evening and then I'm suddenly STUFFED. Huh? I just can't figure out what is going on with my body. Here was today's menu:
B - 2 eggs, 1 slice LF cheese, sandwich thin, broccoli (7:45 a.m.)
S - celery with PB (11:15 a.m.)
L - salad with tuna and some dressing (12:30 p.m.)
S - NF greek yogurt with blueberries (2:45 p.m.)
Felt good and satiated, not hungry at all. 4:30 - STARVING. I can't eat anything until I get my DD home from daycare and give her dinner. at 5:15 I end up eating some crockpot refried beans and lowfat cheese...and 5 pieces of ww penne...and 8 blueberries. I figured this would hold me til dinner and at 7, when I typically get to eat dinner, I felt I needed to eat but didn't have the energy to care. So then I end up eating one slice of leftover ww pizza, and a homemade black bean patty, and 1/2 a sweet potato. And now I am so stuffed there is no room for my salad. Hmmm. Not good.
Can I eat 2 snacks before dinner? I'd rather do this than eat dessert lately. I usually can't eat dinner before 6:30 or 7, it just doesn't fit in our schedule.
Sorry I'm rambling. Any ideas, thoughts, suggestions are totally welcome!
