Soup!

I combine water, spices/herbs, bone-in skinless chicken breast, and let it cook on slow heat. Once it is done, I just strain the broth, shred the chicken and transfer back into the pot. I then add spinach right before eating. Yum! I eat it with lemon. Super low-calorie. Super filling. Super easy.

That is how I survived Atkins 72 induction a few months back.

Skeeter ... love the Metamucil suggestion. I usally add some to my coffee every other morning to keep me "regular".

I am sure that it is higher in calores tand fat than what you are needing, but I've found that heavy whipping cream in my coffee keeps me from hunger.

Loved reading all the cabbage suggestions. Got some great ideas.

Skinless chicken and/or turkey breast. Low cal and very filling.

And you can count me in among the cabbage eaters! Cheap, filling and very low cal.

Yeah....it gives me gas but oh well!?! I just try not to eat it if I'm at work. At home, hubby is fair game.

Take 2-4 Beano tablets with it. They contain the digestive enzyme necessary to prevent the gas.

Cooked cabbage (fried in bacon grease) doesn't give me digestive upset. Raw veggies are a different story.

A pound of lean fish for 300+ calories. I have to add a ton of butter just to get calories up.

I also find eggs very filling and inexpensive without too many calories. But I tire of eating them.

Celery with 1/3 fat cream cheese is good. It keeps my belly quiet for a while. Is it true celery actually burns more calories to metabolize then it has in it? I consider it free crunch.

You might also find some good ideas in the JUDDD forum, under the "Down Day Recipes" Sticky/Thread. Not all are low carb, but many are, and you'll get lot of ideas on how to be creative with few calories.

This is a good thread I think need reviving. I re-read it and liked the cabbage idea. My grandmother used to make cabbage fried in bacon grease.

The most filling snack for me is an avocado with lime juice squeezed on it. Excellent and the fat keeps me full for hours!

Cindy, I was just looking at that LC waffle mix at my local grocery store. I asked around here and noone is familiar with it. Is it that good? What changes to the directions on the box do you recommend? Thanks!

Maple Groves Farms makes the one I was referring to. I think I do 2/3 cup of mix, 1 egg and roughly 1/2 - 2/3 cup water. I made one this morning after a 1 year at least, hiatus from them. I have Big Train pancake mix now I'm going try in a day or so. I should add I make waffles with the mix. Read the Netrition reviews on both. They both rate high but understand it won't be like regular mix. I need to try my Big Train to give you a comparison but I will say, with MGF's mix, you are full!!!

For me, it's all about the fat.

Last summer, I was having a *huge* salad for lunch every day, and then getting the munchies around three or four in the afternoon. I added an extra tablespoon of olive oil to the salad dressing and the afternoon hunger vanished.

Similarly, I've been having ground beef for breakfast -- and if I add a tablespoon or two of bacon grease to the pan, I don't feel hungry again until dinner.

Sure, a tablespoon of fat has a hundred calories -- but there's no other hundred calorie food that will keep hunger at bay for as long.

Wow, this old thread was a good read, since DH (and me by default) is now doing low carb/low cal.

For a fast food bargain, Wendy's large cup of chili is only 330 calories and fills me UP for a long time.

At home, I rely on a lot of soups and stuff - tonight we're having posole made with chicken breast, hominy, homemade chicken stock with roasted chile pepper puree, then we top it with sliced radishes, cabbage, green onion, Serrano peppers, a bit of diced avocado, cilantro - a cup runs about 125 calories and add a few more if you use avocado. I can eat 2 cups of it and be VERY FULL for quite a while - a bargain for 250 calories!

Full-fat mozz cheese sticks - 80 each. Very satisfying.

Those light BabyBel cheese rounds are even better - 60 each!

A cup of Fage 0% fat yogurt is 130 calories and high in protein. It's also remarkably creamy for no fat and thick, rich, and delicious. Stir in a tablespoon of no sugar jam for another 10 calories.

Ding, ding, ding ... that's the ONLY thing that satisfies my hunger. Hopefully when I reach the point that I have to worry about fat intake my hunger will be trained hahaha.

I started making stir fries...I like beef so I'd grill that, stir fry some lc vegetables (mushrooms are a nice filler with their low stats), prep shirataki noodles by frying their stink off, then mix it all together with a basic stir fry sauce. You can eat a huge amount of that for very few calories, especially if you skimp on oil more than I do, and it is extremely satisfying.

I just read a book called Women's Health Perfect Body Diet - the biggest tip I picked up from the book is using a fiber supplement called glucomannan - from the same root, if I remember right, that is used to make shirataki noodles. They recommend 6 to 8 grams a day, NOT taken in capsule form but the capsules opened up and sprinkled into smoothies, yogurts, sauces, anything wet that isn't a beverage. It thickens the food, gives a good feeling of fullness and has all the health benefits of soluble fiber. I'm definitely going to start trying this!

One of the first things I bought when I started JUDDD was gluc powder. When I started, I used it every DD to stave off hunger and fill my belly. Now I seldom need it, but once in a while I have an extra-hungry DD and am very glad to have it. I use it sprinkled in water that's been flavored with Crystal Light or something like that. It becomes nice and thick and I eat it with a spoon.

There are recipes for "gluc pudding" in the DD foods thread. Some folks make some wonderful-sounding very-low-calorie puddings with gluc.
