Hello dieting BetterMostians!

Hope that everyone is doing well with their endeavors.

Tomorrow my coworkers are taking me out to lunch, and asked where I would like to go.  I told them just to the local diner, because I know they have good salads there.

Will you play my record? One-track mind!

Anybody got any ideas or tactics to share for dealing with feelings of hunger?

Try fruit. Or a raw carrot. It has the advantage that you have to chew it a lot, and it takes a longer time to eat it.

On the other hand, I find that if I include some protein and fat at meals I can go for quite a while before getting hungry again in between. For example, if I've got a strenuous day or a late lunch ahead, I make sure to have eggs for breakfast instead of cereal or oatmeal.

A: Would you like some water?

B: Oh, it looks really delicious. But no thanks. These jeans are getting awfully tight.

A: No, this is DIET water! I've been drinking it for a month, and look -- I'm wearing my skinny jeans!

B: DIET water? But isn't it kind of bland and flavorless?

A: It's delicious! It only tastes fattening. (Takes a big refreshing gulp) Mmm-mmm ...

B: Oh, in that case, fill up my glass! I'm going to slim down - with Diet Water!

Or maybe it's "half the hydrogen of regular water."  ;D

Okay, fellow spinach lovers - here's a Spinach Cookie recipe!   ;D  (Although the 80 gms of butter and 60 gms of sugar doesn't sound very diet friendly - even though I don't know what that is in cups or ounces)  :-\

Method

1.Cream butter and sugar with an electric beater, till it becomes light and fluffy. Add spinach or beetroot puree to the above mixture and beat well.
