Default I fixed my "I feel hungry at work" problem!

A few weeks ago I posted about feeling super hungry all morning at work. I would eat cereal for breakfast, oatmeal at 10 and have lunch with a granola bar and the calories were adding up! Now I've switched up breakfast with a few 300 calorie options and starting taking a little zip lock bag to work with a small amount of almonds, dried fruit (strawberries!) and a square of dark chocolate. Somehow a few almonds and a couple of dried strawberries fill me up pretty well! Then I snack on the rest after lunch. I think I was eating way too many carbs I still bring oatmeal or a granola bar to work if I'm extra hungry but so far I haven't really needed it. Just thought I'd throw that out there as an idea!

the good fats in the almonds probably make you feel more satiated then just the whole grains. Fat can be good for you with good portion control.
