    What's your go-to for reducing appetite? Mine is melted cheese with mushrooms, it seems to flip a switch. I must get a good stock of slow cooked mushrooms in the freezer again.

    Another that seems to have done the trick today is avocado - I've had to work on liking them but I'm getting there now.

    melted cheese, spread with some marmite, roll up and allow to cool - delicious.

    I find a Salmon or Beef steak has the biggest impact on my feeling of fullness.

    For me it depends what my body currently wants more of - fat or protein - but I find raw liver to be uniquely satisfying. It slays hunger unlike anything else.

    Double espresso with cream, pork scratchings, olives, cheese, walnuts... Those tide me over until I have a proper meal.

    ...And now I want an espresso.:)

    If it is just plain hunger, then I can eat anything low carb and carnivorish, and that sorts it out. Keto macros work best for me.

    But if it is any kind of craving, then I default to a low carb hot choc (600mls of hot water, double cream, pure cocoa powder and erythritol).
    This fools my body into thinking it got the sweet stuff it wanted, while filling me up and giving me the satisfaction of the cream.

    Or cheese. Cheese works for anything, anywhere, anytime. cheese is good.

    Cheese is great, but it’s worth remembering for those who are sensitive to it, that it’s often a pretty dense source of protein. Very easy to double the level of protein in a meal by carving blocks of cheese into it with a chainsaw. For some people this can materialise as glucose and can undo some of the best intentions in avoiding carbohydrate. Just saying.

    Wouldn’t that be the case with any protein, meat, fish, eggs, legumes, nuts etc?

    Three egg cheese and mushroom omelette, bacon, and tomato top me up for a good start to the day.

    Well, that certainly sounds sickening to me - it would kill my appetite entirely, I'm sure!

    Dunno really - have not been hungry since that huge pork chop just after diagnosis - or maybe it was the steak cooked on the barbecue I lit with all the diet sheets from the surgery - can't quite remember now, it was back in 2016

    To each their own. Personally I find it satisfying like no other food. Including cooked liver.

    Certainly. Just thought cheese worth mentioning since it’s often added to meals with impunity, and some may not be aware that it’s often ~20% protein, not dissimilar to meat. Easy to double the protein content of a meal without realising.

    3 egg, two egg white omelet with some kind of non starchy veg is a good for me, I can make it through a morning and most of the afternoon on that and coffee. I usually just precook brusell sprouts and cauliflower, take them out of the fridge warm them up in the frypan before adding the eggs. Mung bean sprouts if one has the carb allowance (250g of sprouts is about 10g carbs) for them go great in an omelet as well, but I save them for Sunday brunch when I add bacon and mung bean sprouts to make a really good and filling omelet .
