as meat stays in the system longer, keeping you fuller, and veggies digest quicker, adding supplemental fiber (i use psyllium husks) to diet slows digestion, keeping you fuller longer.

unless you need to stuff yourself before a long trek across the desert, forget about filling meals. change your eating habit from just one, two or three filling meals a day to five, six or more snacks a day. save the 7 course sit down meal for holidays. instead, just eat enough during the course of the day until your hunger subsides and eat only small enough portions to satisfy current hunger. then eat some more later.

good site. checked it out after you posted. found this recipe

Middle Eastern Rice with Black Beans and Chickpeas - Allrecipes

made a vegetarian version, still need to learn to tweek it some but very nice. i used half the rice with the same amount of spice though only a dash of cayanne. used brown rice which i finished cooking with some extra vegie broth to make it a little soupy for a sauce. added pine nuts and raw diced onion. future tweek involves less chickpeas, more blackbeans and i used too much parsley. i left out the celantro, thinking it would impart a soapy taste. the pine nuts (fresh, not toasted) went along perfectly with the other flavors.

i heartily second this motion. this has been the ONE thing that has helped me maintain weight. i got the idea from an overweight friend's diabetic diet plan. i am not diabetic. the need to keep blood sugar levels consistent for a diabetic person by using small size, frequent, healthy snacks as a prevention to overeating bad stuff at "scheduled meals" caught my eye. i checked with my doc and he gave me the go-ahead. it really works! i don't feel starved like i did when i used the ol' fashioned mealtimes at classic daytimes.
