What can keep me full till lunch

Answered on September 11, 2013
Created September 09, 2013 at 7:03 PM

I have breakfast at 6:15 the days I'm at college, I've tried eating porridge but that doesn't fill me up till dinner, so I was wondering what healthy low calorie food would keep me full till dinner which is at about 1 (I'm 5 foot 1, and usually try to eat breakfast under 300 calories-Im trying to lose weight as well)

Bacon and eggs with veggies is another great option. Leftovers from the night before can work well. Heck, even just a slab of leftover fatty meat if you're in a hurry.

Personally, I often blend together coconut milk/cream with a banana for sweetness and whatever fruit/berries and veggies are around and appealing. Optionally, get additional nutrients with whole fat yogurt and/or raw eggs. Adding strawberries and/or blueberries with a dash of vanilla and cinnamon is awesome. This morning I put in a carrot, coconut flakes, and cinnamon/vanilla and it was pretty great. I've had a few bad ones but that's rare. These coconut cream smoothies are hard to mess up. Make sure one or more ingredients are frozen to help thicken it up and make it refreshing.

approx what time do you have your lunch/dinner (i put lunch/dinner because you mention both & to me they are different meals, but from memory they can be the same depending on where you live?....& then there is supper?)

I just had 2 eggs, leftover chicken curry and a few toasted walnuts & brazil nuts. I'm full and satisfied. This was after a 17 hour fast, which was an hour longer than usual due to the fact that I was busy with other stuff and not hungry.

Intermittent fasting will keep you feeling satisfied until lunch. Look into it.

I used to eat breakfast (full fat, few carbs) and feel ravenous in 2-3 hours. These days I skip breakfast and it feels great. I have my last meal at 20:00 in the evening and only feel hungry the following day around 13:00 lunch time.

do you have to stay full until lunch because you can't snack?

if you can snack, there's nothing wrong with having an early lunch and a mid morning snack. Depending on the breakfast I eat, I sometimes have a snack.

two fried eggs in left over bacon fat. And coffee with full fat cream. Keeps me full for 4 to 5 hours, especially if I'm busy. If I get a little hungry, I have another cup of coffee with cream.

Definatly eggs. They are usually low in calories. Less than 80 calories for a large hard boiled egg. The protein and fat will keep you full longer. If you don' t eat until dinner you may want to up your calories. 300 is way too low. You should at least up it to 500-600. Add some bacon, some coffee and enjoy.

I personally skip breakfast and do lunch at 12pm and dinner around 6pm.

Intermittent Fasting, or a bulletproof coffee. Lots of us skip breakfast.

Don't worry about calories-eat a breakfast that's high in protein and fat and fiber. They digest slowly and will keep you full a long time. Steak and eggs with steamed cauliflower, liver and eggs with an avocado, chicken breast with a side of berries in grassfed heavy cream or full-fat yogurt are all favorites of mine

1) eggs (2 are enough for me, you can do more) + spinach + mushrooms: fried in some butter or coconut oil

2) hot chocolate made with coconut milk (see my answer here: http://paleohacks.com/answers/493297/view.html)

3) liver (chicken/rabbit) cooked in 1~2 tsp coconut oil with fresh arugula or steamed broccoli

4) any (protein + fat) combo with a non-starchy vegetable (dark leafy greens are a good choice)

Eating more fat + veggies and fewer carbs throughout each day will help to stabilize your blood sugar and appetite. This isn't something you do in the morning, but something you do at each meal. Adjust your diet to include plenty of fat and veggies, a modest amount of protein (high protein has few if any benefits and various drawbacks), and a moderate to minimal amount of "safe carbs" depending on your diet plan. I eat moderate carbs but then I'm not trying to lose weight. Carbs = hungry soon.

I do find my appetite doesn't vary as widely as it used to though and I feel more energetic and stable throughout each day.

Hi

I'm currently eating six boiled eggs at 6.30am and that keeps me full of energy, keeps me mentally sharp and focused, and keeps hunger at bay till 2-2.30pm

Peace x

being fat adapted (bonus for metabolic flexibility). I rarely eat breakfast anymore as I am just not hungry in the morning. When you are fat adapted, your body get the energy it needs, so you your body does not equate eating with energy.

This may work better for men than women.

So if you do eat breakfast -- Eggs. 3 Eggs scrambled with Lots of veggies and spinach and a cup of coffee ~ 300 calories, and that should keep you going
