    The lessor of two evils - which carbs?

    Shop Now
    If, out of all the things we really shouldn't eat, but are thinking of doing so (as I'm always hungry!) what would you recommend?

    My meals mainly consist of a huge plate of veg and either some chicken, fish, or beef (usually 3 times a day). I have quite a bit of fruit and loads and loads of nuts. But I'm always feeling hungry.

    I've heard getting more fats down you can help - but I can't think how to introduce more, so am thinking about turning to some carbs.

    I am pretty skinny so (excess) weight is not an issue. Any ideas on what I can do? Your help would be greatly appreciated!
    :-)

    Sweet potatoes, squash, cauliflower....more olive oil, bacon fat, and butter if you do dairy. Also, choose fatty cuts of beef.

    ETA - don't forget cocobutter, coconut oil, and avocado too!

    If you do dairy, add sour cream, greek yogurt, and natural whole milk cheeses to the above list.
    Next time you are hungry drink a can of coconut milk and see what happens to your hunger.

    Added sweet potatoes and squash to my list I love olive oil, but used to add it to cous cous - salads don't work with so much :-/

    Can't do dairy tho - lactose intolerant

    I think I need to find more recipes - as making a filling meal is more my problem, I think.

    good ol' fashioned water can help curb appetite as well. I usually have a glass when i feel a bit hungry and it'll do the trick.

    Since weight isn't an issue just eat more. Double up on the meats and fat and eat until your full.

    I drink loads as it is, lol. (And try not to drink too much at night - which is when I usually feel hungry).

    That's actually a neat idea! I think I'm getting a bit bored of my meals, too, and need to start finding more staples to add to my arsenal.

    Anyone recommend a thread which has everyone's fave recipes? (I'll go do a search now...)

    Check out the food porn thread! Most of the pics have links to recipes.

    Try making some indian curries too! I made one the other day for the first time and man...it was amazing!
