Default I hope this helps!

It sure does stink to be hungry. I am doing the same thing, getting off of my major carbs and sugar type diet. I didn't realize how much junk I ate until I started tracking it on fitday.

I haven't been watching what I eat for very long, but I am trying to keep my carbs under 100g per day. It's been great so far because I can eat filling things to satiate my hunger (hard boiled eggs, lean chicken breast, salads, cooked or raw veggies) but they won't give me a crash like a sugar or carb. Also, your body won't store these excess proteins as fat - like it would the glucose from carbs, so I don't feel guilty. I know that if I'm hungry, I can eat and if I'm not hungry enough to eat more protein, I must not be REALLY hungry - just craving things.

Maybe come up with a plan to deal with your hunger - such as: when my hunger gets to a level 3 or 4 out of 5, I will: eat ______, drink water, drink tea, or _______ (whatever). It works for me.

Good luck!
