Hey guys, I’m working on dieting down from 187 to 169. I’m consuming about 1800 calories a day, which is a huge cut for me. Even when not working out, I consume around 3100 calories a day. I’m 6’3 and have maintained my weight for about three years, while working out more as an occasional hobby that a serious effort.
Anyway, I’m doing my best to space out my meals so that I don’t get too hungry, but I’m really big on munchies. I don’t eat so much because I’m hungry usually, I eat most of the time because I want to put something in my mouth (bring on the gay jokes). Example being honey roasted peanuts. My roommate has a 6 lb can of honey roasted peanuts that pre-diet, I would eat constantly.
ANyway, the real trouble in sticking to a diet for me has been that I just enjoy eating snack-ish food, regardless of whether or not I’m hungry. I can handle the hunger, I did a 10 day water fast a year ago in college, so it’s not the hunger pangs I have trouble with. So I guess my question is, is there something I can get that is relatively inexpensive, has little to no calories, no negative health effects, that I can munch on throughout the day so I don’t end up breaking my diet?
