    26 + Weeklies isn't enough :,(

    Hey minis!!! I'm brand new to the site. I started working out 4 weeks ago. I hit the gym 3 times a week and earn about 3 activity pps a time. I have spiralled out of control, I'm so hungry all the time and I cannot seem to squeeze all my food into my points. I keep caving in to different naughty things because I am never satisfied. Does anyone have any clever and satisfying tactics to stretch their points. I eat tons of fruit and veggies, any other tips to avoid spiralling out of control? Xxx

    You could try the filling and healthy. Alternatively I find it helps to have a drink a short time before I eat and a coffee straight after and by the time I've finished the coffee I'm usually okay. I would also say to plan every single meal. Look at the propoints values of everything to make sure you're getting the most filling choices possible. I find homemade chilli quite good as I use a half quantity of extra lean beef or even turkey mince and then cube up loads of carrot, onion, pepper, sliced mushrooms etc in a homemade sauce using chopped toms. It's not easy at all and I have found that sometimes I'm starving but I think it's all about finding what meals satisfy you as you're less likely to cheat then

    Be careful though I switched f and h because I was always hungry and went to the gym and it stalled my weight loss. I was treating the food list as a free food list. You still need portion control.

    I try to eat more fish than meat as it's better "value" and yes plan every meal don't drink points and protein with every meal. It's tough!

    I feel your pain, I don't exercise but still feel hungry on 26pp. Are you awarding yourself enough activity points?

    The only tips I can really offer, which have helped me are to include lots of vegetables or salad with every meal. Also protein is much more filling for longer so perhaps increase the amount of eggs, chicken, lean meat you are eating (assuming you eat meat). Nuts are quite a filling snack too, I know they are high pp but I used to weigh out 25g nuts as a snack and found they were great for removing pangs. Other than that drink lots of water, hot water with a slice of lemon is good too. Probably telling you to suck eggs here but hope you sort things out. Personally I think you might be scrimping on the activity points, most people burn 250kcal per half hour in the gym so you are only giving yourself enough points for about 15 mins work out!!

    I have a new tactic. I make a protein shake with fruit including banana and coconut milk with protein powder. Adds up to 3 to 4 propoints and keeps me full until lunch. Saves more points for other two meals. Worth a shot?

    why not up your points a bit and see how you go? I am on 29pp as thats a good amount for me and 26pp is the minimum you should have so I think 3 pp wasnt to much over lol. Or split your weeklies by 7 and add to your daily points? Then you get an extra 7pps a day.

    How about getting more fruit and. Eg in that's free. So if your making pasta with tuna, add peppers, onion, tomatoes etc. it makes a larger meal
