    Satiety is individual. What would hold someone over might last 5 minutes in someone else. Experiment with different things like string cheese, jerky, crackers etc. Personally I eat heavy meals and don't snack between.

    I like high protein snacks to leave me full for longer so tend to go for boiled egg or grilled chicken as my snacks,

    What are you apologizing for? I answered the question. 🤷‍♀️

    I like fruit, especially during the summer, but sometimes I switch it up with a more protein-heavy snack like tortilla chips with bean dip or roasted edamame or with a sweet like homemade fudgsicles or sweet potato muffins.

    Don't know if it's useful or not, but I try to do about half of a usual meal's worth of calories for my daily snacks. So, since my meal's are typically ~500 calories, I eat ~250 calories of snacks throughout the day. Since I focus pretty heavily on protein with my meals, it's nice to have some calories set aside for whatever less nutrient-dense option I'm wanting that day :)
  • Another great dip for veggies is plain nonfat Greek yogurt with a bit of hidden valley ranch powder mixed in, if you thin it a bit it makes a great dressing too.

    I have only snacked on hard boiled eggs, raw vegetables and hummus for the past several years.

    I figure if those things don't sound appetizing, then I'm not legitimately hungry. If I really actually *need* food, then a hard boiled egg or two is tremendously satisfying and filling.

    I do the same - I make sure that every day, I have at least 200 calories for my snacks and eat whatever, I fancy - my favourite is making half a Bounty (uk chocolate and coconut) protein shake and freezing it, in a cup - it tastes great and takes so long to eat it, as it’s frozen..74 calories
