130 calories isn't a lot to fill ANYONE up for much time, no matter how much fiber and protein it is. If you are working with 1300 calories a day, for example, you'd eat that amount of calories TEN times a day! If you are eating 3 meals that size, plus 3 snacks half that size (with size referring to calories), you're only eating at most 800 calories a day. It simply isn't enough to keep your body going!

You might want to check your calories for a few days. Maybe you're losing control because you aren't eating enough calories to keep your body happy. It is HARD to not be hungry under 1200 calories per day.

Pretzels are, basically, empty in terms of keeping you full...all quick-burning carb. Something with some protein and fiber would probably keep you full a lot longer. Maybe a bowl of fiber one with some soy milk or some other fiber/protein combination would work for you.
