The key to success on SBD is to plan ahead so you can head off those munchies. At mealtime, eat until you're satisfied, and make sure you include beans and dairy in your meals. Having a salad with your meals helps keep you feeling full, too. Some suggestions for good snacks are raw vegetables, string cheese, nuts, nonfat yogurt, roasted chickpeas, and even a spoonful of peanut butter. Hummus makes a tasty dip for your veggies, and is very satisfying.
The first few days of Phase 1 are the hardest, and it does get much easier after that. If you can, get yourself to the supermarket to stock up on lots of Phase 1 foods so you'll be prepared when those munchies strike.
