Dieting/cutting back doesn’t mean being hungry all the time. I’ve eaten the left meal plenty of times before and generally within 30 minutes i’m hungry again. So, instead of setting myself to seek out more food within the hour, I prefer to increase the volume of my meal. I’m definitely not ashamed to say I have a big appetite. Or, that I hate the feeling hungry. When I cut back my calories I maintain the volume of my meals with veggies. This doesn’t just apply to breakfast, but lunch and dinner as well!
Instead of just eating my 2 eggs + 2 egg whites, I add a ton of veggies to increase the size of my meal by 322 grams and only 86 calories. I added:
🔸 1 cup of mushrooms
🔸 3 asparagus
🔸 1/4 cup cherry tomatoes
🔸 1 sundried tomato
🔸 1/2 zucchini
🔸 Tbsp. onions
🔸 1 chili
Doing this helps me to get a lot of micronutrients into my diet and stay full for a lot longer.
What’s your current goal? Weight loss? Weight gain? Weight maintenance? Or are you still towards having a healthy relationship with food 😀, because that’s the most important one of all!!! ♥
