I've got a real problems with my afternoons. It doesn't seem to matter what I have for lunch, I'm still starving again in about an hour. Here's my food diary for today.
Breakfast. Half a grapefruit (rarely eat a big breakfast, but makes no difference if I do)
Lunch. small/medium piece of grilled rump steak. Jacket potato. Apple, fennel & onion salad with 1 level dessertspoon of light mayo and 5 walnuts broken into it. About a quarter of a small fresh pineapple. That was at 1.15
At 2.30 I had......packet of quavers, 2 slices of ham, small slice wholemeal with 1 laughing cow light. 2 pickled cucumbers.
Now I'm wondering how I'm going to last until dinner. I'd usually have a cup of tea about now with 1 fruit shortcake biscuit, but by pigging out on the quavers, and having a very small amount of light spread on my jacket spud and the mayo I've only got enough syns left for my dinner and maybe something during the evening.
I use most of my Hex A's on milk in tea & coffee during the day, but sometimes fall a bit short so top up with one or two laughing cow lights.
And dinner will be a full on meal. My syns will be some redcurrant jelly and cornflour (about 2/3 syns) in a sauce to go with lamb. With that I'm having braised baby gem lettuce & peas, a mixture of quinoa and bulgar wheat with griddled aubergine slices, vine tomatoes, spinach and leeks. A tesco light choc mousse (4 syns, I think or maybe 4.5). Some fruit. And then an Options or a biscuit during the evening. (Another 2 syns)
I don't eat yoghurt or anything like that so I can't grab one of those for a snack, and I've tried a Mugshot during the afternoon but even adding to them with some chopped ham or chicken and some veg I really don't like them. I'm fine between breakfast and lunch, and in the evenings I often don't need to snack at all after dinner, it's just the damned afternoons.
Just wondered if anyone has any tips that get them through the "hungry bits".
