Preplanned meals

I've decided that I cannot do OMAD unless I have my dinner already prepared. By the time I get home from work. I'm so ravenous, and ready to tear into a bag of chips, or candy, or whatever is on hand that doesn't have to be prepared. Anyone else had this problem? What did you do about it? Frozen dinners? Cook and freeze?

    I'm also hungry when I get home, what I do is first cut up a few slices of salami, maybe a little cheese and have it out to nibble on while I'm preparing dinner. Even frozen or prepared meals take a little time to get ready. If you've just started recently maybe this is why you are so ravenous, you'll probably find more control over this as you press on. After all, you've waited a day for you meal, what's another 20 minutes or so?
    One idea is to prepare a small salad the night before so that when you get home you can start on that while you fix dinner. Better than chips or candy.

    Make a fruit-yogurt smoothie 1st thing and drink it down. Won't take but a couple of minutes and isn't very high calorie and has good nutrients and will keep you from later eating a lot of high carb junk! That was my routine for quite a while.

    I eat chopped veggies (peppers, carrots etc.) while I'm cooking. Oh and red wine!
