I find that I am very hungry on days I don't get enough protein. Try to include lean protein with each meal and drink lots of water. I used to feel like that every time I dieted and that is probably why I was not successful. I now eat at least 5 servings of fruits and veggies, drink 10 glasses of water a day and make sure to get enough protein and I am never hungry and have to force my calories in. Good luck!

Making soup is a great suggestion, especially if you buy organic chicken stock with low sodium. It's kind of expensive for what it is, but it's the difference between hundreds and thousands of grams of milligrams vs. less than 100. Drinking water is essential, and sipping water between each bite helps. Chewing gum assists with the transition, too. Give it time. Our stomachs are stretched from former eating habits and the shrinkage takes time. Good luck. :)

Start your meal with a vegetable soup. Eat your meal. End with a salad. It helped me a lot. Feeling full all the time.

It will get better with time. Make sure to eat plenty of vegetables and fruit. Crunchy ones that take a while to eat help. Drinking plenty of water helps too. I do lots of hand crafts and art that distract me. emoticon

You can do all things you set your mind to. You can do all things through Christ that strengthens all. Challenge to remind myself of this daily. sparkpeople.com

So far, so good! It's still kind of awful. I'm hungry pretty much all. the. time., but I've lost six pounds! I keep telling myself that's just my lot in life for the next six months, but secretly I'm hoping that my stomach eventually shrinks or something because it's torture!
