Why is it that when you start a new way of eating you are constantly hungry? I've been snacking on peanuts, fruit, anything that is not really too bad for you. I guess eating 5-6 small meals a day is what I should be doing, but I just don't ever remember and I'm terrible at it. Now that I'm back in school and am working on reading and assignments again, I like to just grab things and go.
What I would like are suggestions for "grab-and-go" snacks that are healthy and beneficial to a lower carbohydrate/higher protein "diet" (ugh I hate that word!). I follow the Insulin Resistance "diet" (which is a lot like South Beach), so for example, for every 9 grams of carbs you eat, you must eat 18 grams of protein, or something like that. Twice the amount of carbs anyhow. I don't follow it to a tee, but I try to keep mindful of it.
So far here is what I have on grocery list for Thursday's shopping trip to the store:
Fruits (berries, apples, bananas, maybe grapes)
What else am I missing here? Remember- grab and go! :)
