    Back to it after a very fun July 4th!
    Breakfast: Chicken sausage. 2 scrambled eggs. A peach. 2 buttermilk-vanilla Power Waffles with butter. Cold brew coffee with soy milk and fat-free whipped cream.
    Lunch: Amy's Organic low-sodium lentil vegetable soup with Carrington Farms quinoa croutons and nutritional yeast. 2 Mission Carb Balance sundried tomato basil tortillas. 2 mugs Irish breakfast tea with vanilla creamer.
    Dinner: Lazy "poke bowl" type thing (canned tuna in oil, brown rice, cashews, seaweed, cut-up baby carrots, tomato, and arugula, coconut aminos, sesame seeds, onion flakes, red pepper flakes, mustard powder, ginger). It didn't look like a poke bowl but it did taste like one. Even my vegetarian spouse asked to try some! LOL. Also a mug of oolong tea.
    Evening Snack: Chobani zero sugar milk and cookies Greek yogurt, Perfect Snacks dark chocolate peanut butter cups, and another mug of oolong tea.
    BTW it's been about six weeks now since I started this PCOS management eating plan. Specifically: a) reducing processed sugar, white flour, and other high glycemic foods, b) reducing carbs to 50% or less per day, c) limiting carbs that are not paired with a protein, and d) eating more frequent smaller meals throughout the day instead of two giant meals which I used to do. So far I am definitely seeing benefits. My acne is almost completely gone. I have way more energy. My mood has been a lot better (although part of that is due to trauma therapy). Even my "time of the month" seems like it's less terrible than usual. Even with not adhering 100% to the eating plan and having occasional cheat snacks and meals, the improvements are obvious. If anyone reading has PCOS I definitely recommend this type of diet.

    Hi everyone! I've been having some issues controlling my appetite lately (like, eating a whole pizza and still being hungry kind of appetite) so I'm trying to add more low-calorie bulk to my meals. I've gained a little, so this next week I'm going to bump up my exercise and lower my calories so I can actively start losing again :) If anyone has any suggestions for out-of-control hunger, I'd love to hear them!

    Breakfast: Coffee, veggie and bean hash with guacamole and salsa and a slice of peanut butter and strawberry toast
    Lunch: Vegetable barley soup with vegan italian sausage
    Dinner: Spicy lentils with eggplant and rice
    Snacks: Grapes and half an apple

    I have this problem and for me it's related to hormones. Before my period I want to eat everything in sight, but during and right after my period I have almost no appetite. You might want to get checked for a hormonal imbalance if it persists. It's also possible it may be related to emotions, like stress eating. Stress can sometimes cause sensations of hunger. My partner has this problem and under stress can eat entire boxes of cereal, blocks of cheese, etc. in one sitting without even feeling like they ate anything or noticing how much they ate.

    As for dietary suggestions, dietitian Abbey Sharp talks about the "hunger crushing combo" -- protein, healthy fat, and fiber. She says if you have those components in every meal or snack it will help you to feel full for longer. Swapping out high-glycemic foods like white flour for lower-glycemic foods, will help as well. I also find eating smaller meals more frequently helps.

    Anyway haven't done one of these "What I Ate" in a while:
    Breakfast: Breakfast sandwich (whole-wheat wrap, 3 eggs, bacon, cheddar cheese, avocado, tomato). Iced coffee with whole milk and one Sugar in the Raw packet.
    Lunch: Basil pesto quinoa (one of those ready-to-eat ones) which I added a packet of dry roasted edamame to. Both items from my emergency hurricane/blizzard food stash that were nearing the expiration date. Also some water with lemon and lime juice in it. Speaking of which, I need to switch out some of my emergency food to lower glycemic options and I also need to find some kind of good flavorings to add to water.
    Dinner: Red lentil spaghetti with sauteed seasoned yellow squash, tomato, and spinach, topped with capers and Parmesan. Some baby carrots. Green tea.
    Evening Snack: Chobani zero sugar key lime pie yogurt. 2 Perfect Snacks dark chocolate peanut butter cups. More green tea.

    @LenGrey, great to hear from you again! And your dinner sounds really delish. Today I had: a homemade chocolate chip chia waffle (one section) for breakfast with some oats and Vega protein powder snuck in so my kids wouldn't notice; a mid-morning black tea with whole milk and THEN a London Fog latte with half the sugar, followed by a McDonald's filet o fish for a late lunch (but no fries) and a mostly unsweet tea. Also half a lemon Larabar that had probably been in my office drawer too long. :( Supper was alfredo pasta with diced tomatoes and asparagus added. Also 1/3 cup leftover mustard potato salad. Evening snack: a cup of Ginger Peach tea with tumeric.

    @DiscusTank5 You too! Also, we had the same kind of hot tea lol I got some ginger peach with turmeric the other day and loved it! <3

    Yesterday was a bit stressful because I had someone try to scam an art commission from me and wasted several hours dealing with it, but I was able to curb my emotional eating pretty well. I had an oat milk carrot cake latte for breakfast, a Daiya supreme pizza for lunch with some Netflix and Chill'd ice cream, and a bowl of barley soup with strawberries and grapes for dinner.

    Today's menu is:

    Breakfast: Ramen with tofu dumplings
    Snack 1: Oat milk latte
    Lunch: Sushi rice with vegan BBQ pulled pork, pickled onions, mushrooms, and hummus
    Dinner: Lentil barley soup
    Snack 2: Apple slices

    I'm also hoping to go for a nice long walk after getting through with work today :)

    I went a bit overboard yesterday, since I was meeting some friends for a writing workshop. Much fun (and calories) were had by all! For today though, I'm going to try and focus on some healthier choices and being active. Today's plan is:

    Breakfast: Coffee with soy milk and 2 slices of peanut butter banana toast
    Snack 1: Strawberries
    Lunch: Spinach walnut salad with balsamic vinaigrette
    Dinner: Vegan chicken tenders with mashed potatoes, green beans, and gravy
    Snack 2: Celery and hummus

    I'm planning on taking the dogs for a long walk and maybe doing some yoga, too ^_^
