I agree with everyone. Protein is the key to keeping myself full. Large salads with fiber rich veggies like broccoli, go a long way as well. I would suggest taking your can of tuna and adding it on top of a salad, along with a boiled egg and some low cal dressing. Try not to add too many extras like mayo and butter if you can help it. You would be surprised how much these little extras increase your calories. I would also give chicken another chance. It is a bland food on its own but that means it is a great starting point for any flavors you do like. You can add almost anything to chicken, from sweet to spicy, to savory. Try looking on this site for some great recipes.

Exercise does tend to make you more hungry but with some tweaking of your diet, you can overcome it without adding extra calories

Failure is only a fact when you give up. Everyone gets knocked down, the question is: Will you get back up?
