    why dont you microwave 100g of potatoes and dry fry them in fry light with some tomato ketchup, yummy snack :) or make some homeade crisps with 100g of potatoe: slice them really really really thinly put them on a plate not touching each other spray with frylight and microwave till crispy, add salt and vinegar and voila 1 point tasty homeade crisps :) xxx

    hope you find something that stops the hunger soon xx

    Hi BD
    Do you think it's tum hunger or mental hunger? I'm real hungery this week and it's proper need food , think it's to do with fast start and exercise? Your decorating aren't you? Maybe it's the extra exercise, thou I always think when we are hungry we are using up our fat stores.
    I Always have porridge when really hungry or pasta.

    thanks for the reply your probably right size102b all the extra work with the decorating and im not using any AP`s i earn. Geuss its just one of those bad days that we all have from time to time had a bowl of pasta with a bit of bolognese sauce and drank almost a Ltr of water seems to have done the trick and for tea had some fish and veg with a couple of new potatoes and feel back on track. thanks to you gonnagetskinny20 will try the crisps
    thanks

    i suppose the only way to tell if its mental or physical hunger is what youve eaten in the last hour or so.I knew i had eaten well but got the munchies so i suspect mine was all in my head:confused:

    Potatoes and rice are carbs , carbs make us hungry so stick to whole grains.
    Mental hunger is eating as we are bored, tired, lonely, emotional and food helps mask that. Hunger is when you feel really hunger, if we eat filling foods our hunger shouldn't be constant . It takes along time to retrain ourselves to reckonise real hunger if we comfort ear or binge.
    I used to eat whenever and where ever like if we are out and family want an icecream I'd just have one for pleasure or bored at home I'd have a hot drink AND biscuits not because my body 'needed' them just because I could.
    Food is fuel to keep us alive , thus us why people these days get fat as we use good for pleasure and yonkies ago food was scarse so there weren't many overweight people, now it's cheap and everywhere and people actually get excited about eating?
    Since I've been doing ww for over 5 months I don't use food for pleasure or get excited anymore as I see it's just to keep us alive , I know that sounds really boring as we most if us use food fit get togethers parties nights out but suffering morbid obesity and eating to comfort the depression of being morbidly obese I now see food wasn't my friend entertainment it was my addiction , it still is and mental hunger is what got me to 7.5 Stones overweight xx

    Hi,

    Thanks for your help size 102b and everyone else. I think my mental hunger was actually making my stomach think it was hungry. I think also because I ate my meals quite close together my stomach didnt realise it had been fed. As soon as i started doing some housework and did something I didnt feel hungry and didnt notice it or it wasnt there not sure which. But thanks for your help. I also bought the filling foods book as i find cooking numbs my appitite a bit.

    Thanks everyone xx
