Hungry all the time, 1 year after surgery...
I drink my protein shakes still, 4-5 a day, with snacks in between of nuts, cheese, meat, etc. Low-carb, high-protein. Keeping to about 1200 cal a day per my nutritionist. I take all my vitamins, and try to get in exercise each day - walking, etc at lunch hour.
I get hunger pangs less than an hour after a shake. I eat a handful of nuts or a Babybel cheese, and it lasts about a half hour, if that, and I feel it again. I REALLY hate the thought of going back to 'bored eating', but I'm afraid that I will! Anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks, all! And happy holidays!
1. artificial sweeteners. (splenda ,etc)
2. soda - even diet
3. chewing gum
4. dehydration - need enough water - hot teas...
Then - try some food with fiber.
sometimes not eating enough calories makes me hungry.
BTW: if I try to make a shake using milk (8 oz = 12 gr of sugar) I will get sick (but that beacuse of RNY) and I also will get hungry very soon after the shake.
Low carb - high protein diet - works when yu also get enough fat - fat - good natural fat (butter, eggs, cheese, nuts) keeps me fulller longer.

Bonus: It's bound to be cheaper than all those shakes and it's REAL FOOD!
