Didn't do great today

It wasn't that I ate anything that was bad in particular,
just the quantities were off, especially meat. I had ham and
turkey at lunch, more (unplanned) ham when I got home
because I was starved and had to go grocery shopping, then
steak while I was baking. *sigh* I didn't even add it all
up. More than I want to know!

But tomorrow is another day right?

Question for you folks. The idea that carbs make you hungry
more quickly is an idea that I've been resisting for
years...probably because I don't want to give them up (and
have no intention of doing so now!). I love my bread,
cereal, rice, pasta, etc. and will continue to enjoy them.

A staple of brought-from-home lunches for my husband and I
is a dish of assorted carb-y stuff - Simple Pleasures
cookies, some saltines, a rice cake, worth about six points
in all. However, over the past couple of days I've included
a hard boiled egg as one of my snacks. That little protein-
packed two point egg seems to have a lot more staying power
than my six-point pack of carb snacks. I feel like I should
start packing two eggs and skip the cracker bit, save some
points and be more satisfied.

What do you folks think? I'm not going to go the all-protein
route (as heavenly as daily steak sounds), but perhaps a
small change in that direction can have some results.

I personally have had more success with higher protein
snacks than carby snacks. My morning snack is celery with
peanut butter. I have cottage cheese with my lunch usually
or yogurt and my dinner always has protein of one sort or
another. My lunches have been sandwiches with more
substantial breads (I take 3 points for my bread
selection), but with the sandwich and the cottage cheese I
am usually only hungry when I get home and I have salad in
a bag waiting for me to inhale. I do have fruit with lunch
also, and strawberries have a lot of fiber so they are
worth it in my book.

Generally if it's not a simple carb I'm much more satisfied.

I conciously try to choose snacks with protein or dairy
rather than just simple carbs. If it does have to be
carbs, then I choose fruit or multigrain stuff rather than
the "white" stuff. I find it really does help stave off
the munchies.

As for your day, a philosophy I've used is "write it down
and move on". It helps to write everything down, just to get
into the habit, and so really *see* what you've eaten. That
doesn't mean you have to try to make up for it the rest of
the week, just start again as soon as you can. However,
writing it down helps that to be a concious decision.

I find that I need to have a high protein lunch or I am
hungry by 3pm. My typical lunches are either a sandwich made
from 3-4 oz of turkey breast on LF whole wheat bread with a
dab of LF mayo. I also make leftover chicken + veggies that
I nuke or bring Lean Cuisine or WW meals. They both now make
Low Carb meals that are basically meat/chicken and green
veggies which suits
me.

I also have a mini yogart cup for another point as my
dessert. I also have a baggie of celery sticks as my veggie.

Personally I find carbs (breads, cereals, etc) very filling
and satisfying. I don't know how much of that is due to the
fact that I LOVE them so, and how much is because they truly
fill me up. I love nothing better for an evening snack than
either a bowl of cereal (I think I could live on nothing but
cereal and milk) or some whole wheat toast sprayed with some
of that fake butter spray stuff. However, I DO have to make
a concerted effort to make sure that the bulk of my points
don't come from carby stuff. I have to make sure I get some
proteiny snacks in somehow. You know, now that I think about
it, maybe that's why my weight loss has slacked off a bit in
the last couple of weeks. Too much bread. Darn.

What about 1 egg, 2 points of carbs and 1 point of fruit, Lee, I eat all of
it but try to have the food groups together. Lee
