What should I do if I'm still hungry?

Truthfully, the first two weeks I began Jenny Craig I was STARVING!  I was so used to eating larger portions that my stomach and brain had a difficult time adjusting.  I got the most hungry (and still do!) from lunch to dinner.  My fruit for a snack holds me over for about thirty minutes.  As I was adjusting I would come home from work and eat about six fat-free saltine crackers with a dash of hot sauce.  Haha, obviously this was NOT part of the Jenny Craig program but I knew this was low in calories and I wasn't completely ready to go all or nothing.  Once I found myself plateauing (and I was much more used to smaller portions) I cut the crackers.  The best suggestion I can offer is always veggies, veggies, and more veggies.  For example, if you are hungry munch on some carrots, cauliflower, or celery.  Peas and corn are excluded from this list.   

But, I know you may be thinking, "Come on, Katie, be real.  I am already jamming what seems like a TON of veggies into my body.  Now you are telling me to eat MORE if I am still hungry?!"  The only other thing I snack on outside of my daily regimen is Original Fiber One Cereal or plain Bran Flakes.  I like this option because it at least feels more like a snack and it really does fill me up.  All the fiber in those two choices is high enough that you should feel temporarily full, and besides, fiber just runs right out of you!  Wink  This may be a good or bad thing depending on how close you are to a bathroom.

Why don't I include a total amount of calories per day in my blogs?  Until tomorrow...
