This is all around good eating advice, so I wanted to share it from Bodyrock.tv
If you are trying to cut back on portions and eat better foods, but feel like you are starving make sure you are eating foods that will actually fill you up. Drink plenty of water. I've said this before and it really helps. Drink one to two 8 oz of water before each meal. Can't stand drinking plain water, add a little bit of lemon juice for taste. It also aids in digestion and your immune system. Eat every 3 hours. Try to eat Protein every time you eat or snack. A lean protein and "good" carb is ideal at every meal or snack.
Here are just a few combo ideas for you of protein and Carb snacks:
String Cheese and fruit or veggies
Celery and 2 TBS PB
Non-fat Greek yogurt and mixed fruit &/or granola
Apple and PB
Handful of nuts (nuts are not a "complete" protein & have a lot of calories per small amount, but they do have the good fats that you need, plus carbs and protein, they are okay, just have a small handful at each serving) and fruit
Salad w/ hard boiled egg or lean chicken breast on top
Low Fat Cottage Cheese and fruit
Low Fat cottage cheese and whole grain crackers
Do you have some ideas of Good Protein and Carb snacks??
