Default Phase one- really hungry. Any suggestions?

Hi, Ive been trying to do phase one since Monday but Im finding every single day I`m really hungry. I was just wondering if someone would mind looking at what I typically eat and see what they think?

Breakfast: 2 whole eggs made into omelette with spinach, tomatoes and 50g low fat mozzarella cheese.

Snack: 2 light babybels

Lunch: 130g tuna, spinach, tomatoes, cucumber, peppers and 1tbsp olive oil with balsamic vinegar.

Snack: Today was a packet of cooked chicken ( 150g)

Dinner: Baked pork fillet (200g uncooked), mixture of onions/peppers/courgette/garlic/tomatoes roasted in 1tbsp olive oil.

I do drink a fair amount throughout the day as well but I am finding I am so hungry all day. How does my plan look? Previous days in the afternoon Ive been making lettuce wraps with chicken and peppers.

You need complex carbs. Try Hummus or some other bean mixture. This menu actually looks like Atkins! This is a good carb not a low carb plan.

You also do not have any dairy. Check out the Phase I food list for milk or yogurt requirements. (Cheese does not count as dairy on this plan but as protein.)

Hope this helps.

Cooked lentils are great and have lots of protien and fiber!

I agree with Ruth and would add to make sure you are getting all 4-5 cups of veggies in!

Brassicas are filling too so you could add some broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, cabbage, kale...

Some nuts help Get a handful of almonds, cashews, peanuts, etc. Or a tbsp of peanut/almond butter.
Tuna is generally not filling for lunch- like I'll be hungry 3 hours after eating it. For a snack, try Greek plain yogurt +flax + nuts- really filling!
For breakfast, add a cup of milk or coffee? Some chocolate milk is filling- like milk, unsweetened cacao and stevia
Some veggies + hummous are also a very filling snack too! Add them after dinner if hungry? Or instead of the babybel- I wouldn't find those too fillings. Add extra veggies to your meals and it should fill you up more

These are all good suggestions. I remember when I started out, I wasn't eating enough, on SB I found I could eat more than I normally did. Lots of variety.

I agree with nuts and beans! When I went on PH1 for the first time I was very, very hungry. Most seem not to find that and I'm not sure why the difference. I also find drinking lots of hot decaf tea helps some.

Oh thank you so much for all the comments, they were really helpful :-). I think I was maybe trying to be a bit to restrictive on the phase one part. I am going to try adding maybe something like chickpeas to see how it goes, I like the idea of the greek yogurt with seeds as well :-).
I`ll try and plan out a new day for tomorrow and see how it goes. Thanks again, its just a little hard adjusting to this, I was a complete fruit addict before and would have eaten loads during the day, so Im finding it a little strange not eating an apple etc.

esmee - today I made a breakfast/lunch that I liked very much! I buy the egg substitute stuff, because once you mix veggies/whatever with it, you don't notice that they're not 'real' eggs...anyway, first I sauteed onion and bell pepper chunks in a TBSP olive oil, then added a half can of no-fat refried beans, pushed that to one side (it was a big skillet) and then poured in my one cup of egg substitute, scramble it. Then I layered it in my 'go to work' lunch container with a little salsa. OH so good!! and sooo filling. I want it again for tomorrow

I'm weird I guess, I was never hungry on phase 1 even though I expected to be. If you're hungry just eat! Definitely I found that I felt more satisfied when I had nuts.

Peanut butter is a good snack and its very satisfying. Theres a lot of things you can have that you think you cant. Theres tons of recipe ideas for every meal and snack of the day. All I did was a google search Thats how I found this site.

Peanut butter is limited on Phase I and must be the all natural kind.
