Appetite

Any advice on appetite suppressant? I have no problem working out, but snaking is my downfall!

    I have noticed that if I drink a cup of coffee after I get to work and a cup of coffee mid afternoon that it works wonders that I do not get hungry in between meals like I usually do.

    Water. 4 out of every 5 tonnes i think I'm hungry, I'm actually thirsty. So If i feel hungry i drink a glass of water and reevaluate my hunger in 30 minutes.

    I'll second the water comment. If I'm drinking enough water, I'm almost never ever hungry. I drink 8 glasses min. every day. Usually closer to 12.

    Getting enough sleep. When all else fails, coffee.

    Make sure you are getting enough protein, fat, and fiber. They can all help with satiety and are important for other reasons as well. If I'm not really hungry, just "snacky" I find a cup of coffee during the day or a cup of mint green tea at night can get the job done (sometimes with a square of dark chocolate, because... chocolate).

    Agree with Kimny. Also, I have found that if I do start snacking, I will often want to continue snacking, and my whole day is blown. So I stopped snacking and started to distract myself with busy work. If I move away from the kitchen /tv / computer and get really busy doing something, I'll suddenly find myself with a project completed a few hours later not having snacked! :) After doing that for a while (and sometimes having to ignore my mind telling me to grab some chips), I have lost the urge. I feel like I have gotten used to being a bit hungry and it feels ok to feel that way. Not having blood sugar swings helps a lot.
