I think that maybe I am not paying enough attention to when I am hungry during the day. I think that is still part of my problem with over-eating in the evening. I know I can't make up for not eating. I do not need more food now because I didn't eat earlier. It's just so much harder to stop when I am too hungry.
This morning I got hungry earlier than usual. it wasn't conveniant to eat but I was very hungry. Instead of choosing something I wanted for taste I chose what was available and more nutritious. I had a cup of apple sauce. It was ok but mostly I was eating JUST for hunger. At lunch I ate what was available.
That is becoming a pattern that might be making this harder for me. Maybe if I spend more time taking foods to work that I really like and having more options available I won't be having so much trouble in the evening. That takes more planning and refrigerator space at work is limited.
I actually seem to make better choices when I eat out these days which is surprising. Because I am eating less now , eating out is less expensive than it use to be and there are healthy options available. I'm glad.
