Make me full.

What are some foods that keep you full but don't blow the calorie count?

    Loads of steamed veggies keep me full for a long time. I mix cauliflower, broccoli ,carrots and it tastes good. Broccoli fills me nicely for a while !

    A serving of oatmeal with a Clementine comes in at around 180 cals and holds me over for a bit

    A protein shake can fill me up for a few hours for sure !

    A serving of Greek yogurt is @ 140 cals . you can add in some fruit slices maybe if you'd like.

    Popcorn is my saving grace when I need volume without a ton of calories.

    Learn to be satiated, not full...

    But personally I like a nice piece of salmon, roasted potatoes, and a *kitten* ton of veg.

    Try 100-200g of oats then add double that of milk/water. Microwave that beast and go for broke. Add protein powder and/or a spoon of peanut butter. It's not scarce on calories, but the macros are bretty good and it's guaranteed to make you full.

    I don't want to feel stuffed. Here is the way it usually goes though, oatmeal in the morning 7am, snack around 9:30 is usually an apple, orange, or the like. Lunch about noon that is reasonable, then at 2:00 I am starving the rest of the day and nothing makes the hunger subside. What in the world makes a body do that?

    Before I was counting, I would just eat something and not care, but I thought after a few weeks of being aware it would get easier. Really makes the second half of the day difficult to concentrate on anything else.

It has only 80 calories and they have delicious flavors like red velvelt cupcake and lemon.. it also has a ton of protein, i think 15grams. Whenever im feeling really hungry out of my meal times i eat one of it and it fills me up

    How many calories per day are you eating when doing this?

    I've found that a shake/smoothie with Greek yogurt, almond milk, frozen fruit pulp, and splenda fills me up more than if I eat just the yogurt with fruit. Pretty much the same amount of calories too since the almond milk just adds 30 calories per cup. Also eggbeaters are great! I can make a huge omelette for 125 calories per cup of egg plus whatever I want to put in it. I add fat free ham/turkey, fat free mozzarella cheese, onion, mushroom, tomatoes, or whatever I find in the fridge that seems to go well together. After eating all of that I feel so full that I'm convinced I've eaten more calories than what I logged.

    I'm the same way; I've started getting to eat smaller meals and just load up the veggies. I've found some 100 calorie bagels, so that's a good morning snack with some cream cheese. This morning I had a hard boiled egg with my coffee which kept me for a couple hours, then I had some oatmeal with fruit. That kept me until lunch, when I made homemade soup (veggies with kidney beans, sort of a minestrone without pasta). I just had a 100 calorie sized thing of guacamole with a couple mini pitas, and for dinner will have a grilled cheese sandwich with the leftover soup and maybe a salad. It helps me to plan my whole day on advance, so I know what I'll be able to budget in. I'll have some fruit in between meals to help with my sweet cravings, which can be intense.

    I've avoided rich foods since Lent started about 13 days ago and since then my appetite has fallen off. I sometimes forget to eat dinner. For that reason consider not eating refined carbs like sugar and flour. I eat lots of dried fruit because I can't eat the fresh fast enough and nuts. Had the last tablespoon of unsweetened peanut butter with chili and garlic right from the jar last night.

    Today for lunch I had 2 oz of turkey, 1 oz of American cheese and 2 oz of avocado and made roll ups. Very satisfying.

    For me....it's protein and fat....if I eat a lot of carbs, I am starving, even into the next day. I try to keep my carbs as close to 100 as I can and eat more protein.

    I've been munching on cucumber sticks as an afternoon snack. It seems to fill me up for a while.

    I love salads for feeling full. You get a lot of food for not a lot of calories. I usually pack one with my lunch and it keeps me full all day.
