If you are hungry by mid-afternoon, here's a favorite go-to snack for me. A bowl of cherry tomatoes or baby heirloom tomatoes (from Trader Joes). Get about a cup's worth. Rinse them off and put in a bowl. Drizzle just a dash of olive oil, swish the bowl around to coat them with oil, and sprinkle lightly with Morton Lite Salt. You're allowed to have unlimited cleansing veggies for lunch, so my thought process is that these are just extra that I could have had at lunchtime! If you've successfully cut out sugar like I have, the tomatoes will taste so sweet, it's quite a treat.
The calories are low, you're getting water from the tomatoes, which fills you up, and a dash of fat to keep you satiated. Better yet, have it with one of your alloted eggs (hard boiled, or any style). The protein will hold you over till dinner (a tip I learned from a fellow 17 day dieter!)
Please share your tips! Thanks!
