I don't think the shirataki noodles are noodles in the traditional sense that they are made with a wheat flour. Years ago they were pretty expensive, I hope that has changed.

Good luck, I feel like I'm always starving too, good to see some ideas here.

All good advice so far and i definately agree with lots of veg! i use a herbs range by NOMU from south africa and it takes the boredom out of veg. they have loads of different flavours and are really cheap if you order a selection of 4 little pouches -free delivery

Also i discovered low calorie ice lollies last year and they now enable me to have snack in the evening for less then 100 cals!
Mini Twisters, Fabs, Fruit Pastel and lots of others for between 40-100cals! (I am slightly obsessed)

Shirataki noodles! ...these things are a life saver or me. One bag is only 40 calories. I mix in half a cup of healthy pasta sauce, which is 45 calories, and a tablespoon of grated parm for 25 calories. 110 calories for a meal that will keep you full for hours (it's an entire bowl of pasta), is all you need in this world. Plus, its got 9 grams of fiber and 5 grams of protein. I'm telling you, LIFE SAVER!


Where do you get the shirataki noodles? Please tell. Sounds like it could be a lifesaver for me, cuz I'm a pasta addict. Thx! :)

Those are not for every one- Very slimy lol I couldnt eat them- you can find them at whole foods if you have one near you- or stores that have a wide selection of organic foods generally.

First of all, if you are so hungry, then please eat.

The best low calorie filling foods (in my humble opinion) are fruits and vegetables. You can eat pounds of veggies for very few calories.

Since I'm going through this right now have there been any changes to your diet or medications that might really affect it? Like not eating enough carbs or starting or upping the dose of some medications?

Sometimes a piece of fruit is just enough to tell your brain you are full. At least it worked for me last night now today its a different story.

hot chocolate is good for a low cal chocolate fix.

Dear Hungry, I have been there. I am no expert but I have found my small choices that satisfy some of my needs. I eat Cheezits the small BAKED cheese crackers. They are low in calorie and give me the salty and cheesy taste. I think you can eat like 30 f a serving. By them you pretty much had your fill. If you go over it is not that bad. I also found the Chocolate and Oats fiber bar from ?? and it gives me the chocolate taste I need and low in calorie and gives me good fiber too. I guess any of these can hel. You gotta try some.

You can pick up Shirataki noodles from Safeway, or an Asian grocery. They're like $2 a bag. The trick to them is cooking them correctly. People who cook them incorrectly hate them, and think people like myself who live on them are crazy. People who know how to cook them live on them because they are tasty and super low cal. They take on whatever flavor you cook them with, whether it be alfredo sauce, marinara, soy, etc. Trust me. Follow the instructions below and try them at least once.

Instructions:
Open bag
Strain
Rinse with hot water for 1 minute
Boil
Strain
Rinse with hot water for 1 minute
Boil
Strain
Briefly rinse with hot water
Let sit in pot (dry) with the heat on for 1 minute
Mix with pasta sauce and eat!

Yum, yum, yum! I'll be eating some for dinner tonight!

Nice long walk to a computer store will help. While there, get one of those fancy keyboards that type in UPPER case as well as lower case. The walk will burn calories . . . just sayin .

Consider Casin Protein.

It digests slowly by design helping you stay full longer. I like to mix it in with oatmeal.

I Fast 2 days a week and eat up to 50 calories on those fasting days. I live on either Itsu detox noodle soup or miso soup, sugar free jelly (practically caloris free) and low fat salty popcorn.

all other days i try and be good but don't really deny myself anything and take up to 1200 calories.

Try it! Fasting is easier than you realise.

500 calories that is...not 50 ;)
February 7, 2013 5:29 AM
I was like that yesterday. I cooked a bunch of veggies and added them to Tofu Shirataki angel hair. I wouldn't eat it plain but with veggies and a light sauce, it was really good. I'm going to keep some on hand.

I didn't read through this whole post, but clear soups with low sodium broth lots of veggies and a lean protein usually work for me.

If this helps this is what I do...

Drink plenty of water whilst eating.

Breakfast is weetabix or porridge weighed.
Lunch soups various types each day.
Dinner I meal plan for a week so I know what im cooking.

I snack on Yoghurts and fruit. :)

For me my calorie goal is 1590 a day, so if I reach 1590 or if I go over I do a 30 minute of aerobics- bc of my weight I usually burn about 340 calories which puts my net calories at 1290....now you can choose to eat back the 300 you burn or just leave it at 1290, if you burn lets say 600 calories working out then that would put your net calorie at 990 and you most defintely should eat those calories back you want to stay close to your daily allotted calorie intake, if your net calories are under 1200 your body could go into starvation mode and then your body will store fat instead of burn it..... so point being you can eat more and stay in your calorie range as just long as you work out don't be discourgared take it one day at a time......hope this helps
