Hi Elderwanda, my wife couldn't lose weight until she dropped down to 1200 calories a day. But she is never hungry. Lots of vegetables and fruit takes a lot of the diet without adding up to lots of calories. A huge plate of salad before dinner and most nights there is not a whole lot of room for much else! Try just eliminating the highest calorie foods you are eating first.
