    does anybody else go to bed really hungry?!?
    I'm laying here listening to my tummy rumble, which then makes me want bad food!!!

    Yes, quite often recently.

    I've tried saving 2 syns for an Options drink before bed and drink a large glass of water half an hour before I turn in. It usually does the trick for me :)

    Yup...plan for it, if it means you have four meals a day so be it, make sure it's free and superfree so SW SW quiche and salad,
    a bowl of speed soup,
    or any homemade soup,
    Jacket potato and bean chilli or leftover curry/chilli.
    Save up your HEB and have banana on toast.

    I like potato and egg salad, hard boiled eggs, boiled new potatoes, peppers, onions, peas, cucumber, tomatoes, radish, (apple and peach is nice added too but you need to add lemon juice to the apple) and a spoonful of EL Mayo, add when potatoes are warm so it coats better, then refrigerate until required.

    I think I need to eat more, as silly as it sounds!!!!
    I tend to have my dinner at around 4-5ish as I do waitressing in the eve.
    but then I find I'm eating at around midnight when I get in!!!

    the salad sounds lovely, def going to do that tomorrow!!!

    :eek: No wonder you are so hungry!!!

    7-8 hours is a long time to go without food. Especially if you are doing such a demanding job like waitressing.

    Take some quick to eat snacks to work with you and fill up on them. Prepare yourself something low syn to munch on when you get back and that should sort you out :)

    I'm a waitress, and have the same problem. It's a running joke at work now, my different box of food every day. When I go in, the chef and boss always say "do what's she got in her box today?" :p I'm starving, just got in from work :/

    At the gym they recommend 5-6 meals a day rather than 3 to keep your metabolism going and avoid danger dips!

    Hun you deffo need to eat more if you have your tea at five. Thats not gonner last you until 7am the next day, which is going without food for about 12 hours!!

    I am a fan of little and often. Yesterday i had two boiled eggs and wm toast for brekkie, two alpen light and some fruit about 12ish, prawn salad about half 2, chicken salad about half 6 and had my syns on chocie and crisps when i got in from work at half 9. Also long as youre eating superfree and free then there is no need to go hungry!!

    Why not try having some fruit with your breakfast to help you stay fuller, or if you have time make something like egg bacon and beans with toms and mushrooms? How about having something like some fruit or a mug shot when you get in from work? Hope that helps

    that helps alot!!! I do pick at work, but where I am on the go I suppose I'm burning it off!!!!
    I have already had breaky, and thinking of lunch haha!!!

    def going to fill up on more fruit and veg, just find it weird that I can eat so much and it's ok!!! whereas I have been used to limiting food on other diets!!!

    but on the positive side, it must be working!!!

    I do feel sometimes like i eat loads, but most of what i eat is fruit and veg (super free) which is a better than eating crisps, bread, chocolate and ready meals all day.

    I was like that. I know I shouldn't say this but....have you tried the Dukan attack. It has changed my eating habits. If you have protein for brekky you will not feel so hungry. In fact on Dukan I never felt hungry and could not eat enough! That's a first!!

    I must say I do not see it for life and am now back to sort of cc. Just eating when hungry and sensible with it but must admit my appetite has shrunk!

    Worth a look? :)
