Conquering Midday Cravings
Q: I've been bringing frozen “diet” lunches to work for weeks, but an hour after eating, I'm starving. I've even started stealing coworkers' snacks from the refrigerator! The other day I heard somebody mention the “kitchen thief,” and I wanted to crawl under my desk. I'm afraid I'm just too lazy to lose! What can I do?
A: Ditch the frozen entrees and eat something that actually satisfies your hunger. Try stocking your cupboards with single-serving cans of chicken or tuna, along with snack-size bags of almonds or sunflower seeds. In the A.M., just grab and go-and toss in a hard-boiled egg for good measure: its six grams of protein stabilize blood sugar levels and prevent the dips that set off midafternoon hunger pangs.
