I've had the best luck with a high protein breakfast. For me this is some kind of beef and/or eggs and often veggies. I can usually go all day without hunger until the late afternoon. If I do get hungry for lunch, I keep sardines and salmon in my office. Basically mostly zero carb until dinner. I feel great, lose weight and have control over my appetite this way.
Dinner is usually some kind of meat (land, air, sea), a vegetable and a starchy root or tuber (1/4-1/2 sweet potato or a pile of mashed celery root, for example.) I put lots of butter on this. I enjoy 1-3 glasses of red wine and some dark chocolate every day.
This makes me feel good. I've experimented with different amounts of carbs but this feels best to me. I've lost 25lbs. I have plenty of energy. My appetite is totally under control. If I have too many carbs on a daily basis, I lose control over my appetite. My mood feels worse. Maybe others can do it, but not me.
It takes experimentation to find what works for you so give things a try and find what keeps your appetite under control and also tastes good. I really like meat, eggs, liver, leafy greens, mushrooms and stuff like that. I really don't like salad, fruit or portion control.
