I had a difficult day yesterday, trying to keep the hunger at bay. I don’t know why, but I couldn’t stop feeling hungry, even after an afternoon snack.
I didn’t have this problem during the week, and after looking at the breakfast choices in my Food Diary (keeping a food diary at MyFitnessPal.com) I am wondering if it was due to having a whole grain (oatmeal) for my breakfast meal.
Every other morning, I had yogurt or protein. Today I had a 1/2 serving of the leftover chili from last night and a yogurt smoothie, then for lunch, a nice ham pita sandwich. It’s 2pm, and I feel good. My stomach still feels full, even though psychologically I could probably still eat right now!
Anyway, my point is maybe it was the grains. I will have to keep that in mind!
