    Can't see your journal. Are you actually eating enough? Are the foods you are filling yourself with satiating enough to keep you full?

    Slamma-jam some water.
    Drink two or three glasses of water rapidly as fast as you can-- (room temperature not iced)-- to the point you actually feel a little nauseous. That usually takes care of my hunger!

    Anad if you feel like snacking, reach for protein-- some turkey jerkey, a hard boiled egg, some nuts-- rather than sugars or carbs.

    I snack on low calorie veg between meals, if I get super hungry.

    Agree with previous.
    Protein can be more satiating or keep you fuller longer.
    Drink lots of water.
    Look at fiber intake and fill up on lots of veggies too.

    in general, focus on protien, fats, and fiber. these will help you feel full longer

    the water thing always made me hungrier.

    I have a hard time snacking, it's never enough to make me feel "not hungry" so I often try to stick with 2 - 3 large, filling meals thru the day

    Specifically with the burrito, having the beans would be better since they give protein and fiber. Outside of that, specifics are hard without without knowing your specifics.

    I snack on a granola bar or even unsalted nuts. Normally I drink water a half hour before just to make sure I really hungry and not just bored.

    I use a fibre drink called regucol to keep myself well, regular. The side effect of it is that it makes me feel very full and it is only 5 calories.
    You can also fill up on 10 calorie sugar free jelly, bags of salad leaves.

    Less sugar more fiber and protein. Drink water with and after meals.

    I drink water 30 min before I eat. That lets me know if I was bored or just hungry. You need water daily anyway so that is a good way to get it in.

    For me delaying eating in the morning, coffee, protein, taking a walk/exercise, and using low starch veggies to add bulk to meals.

    You could have a good sized salad with the burrito for around 50 calories if you us a low cal dressing of some kind...or none...some people are fine with just lemon juice. Leave the cheese off the burrito and it would probably net out as less calories overall.

    I do three, four meals a day. Snacking gets me off track. I know thats not for everybody, just my experience. I plan my days meals ahead. I can change if things dont work out. It takes a few weeks to get the calories and the foods you feel good with, then it gets easier. Make sure your calorie intake is adequate too, otherwise its a saboutage.
    Water, walks, & mfp community curbs appetites!

    Protein is what does it for me. 16 oz of egg whites is 250 cals, add some veg like peppers, onions, mushrooms - Bam, super full.

    Also people knock eating "clean" but I don't have many cravings because I eat steamed veg, lean meats, beans, nuts, oatmeal, sweet potatoes stuff like that. If I have mac and cheese, something sweet besides fruit or something fatty/salt my cravings are way up for at least a couple of days. It's like they wake up from a deep sleep.

    Try a few nuts or a boiled egg and lots of water. Or black coffee.

    If you are not feeling dizzy, headache or any of the dangerous symptoms, ignore the hunger. You'll train your body to tolerate hunger and it will go away.
