Im trying to cut a little here and every now and then I get so damn hungry I can't help but eat something. Usually, If i'm lucky, Its a can of tuna, an apple, or steamed broccoli with parmesean on top. When I'm unlucky... its ice cream, or something worse.

Do you guys (or girls) have anything you could recommend to keep in the kitchen for when my stomach wins against my will?

I prefer Peanut Butter. Or, if my protein macro is low, I'll cook up a few eggs.

It really depends on your macros. If you're cutting and need to stay near that lower calories around, I'd recommend veggies. They'll fill you up for minimal calories. If you can afford a few more calories, cottage cheese.

Agreed. I usually go with a Peanut Butter sandwich or an egg omelet of some kind.

Ive had many diet crashes and the only food worked for me to stop that madness with overeating was fried egg with plenty of seasoning + tuna + dried chilli flakes(be generous) + some salad leaves. I've learnt you don't want this "curing" meal too tasty and not too disgusting as I thought when you'll eat something of more disgusting the more gonna makes you stop wanting more but it does opposite as you just want to go back to the junk and kill that awful taste but tuna+egg is great IMO.

When bulking up I like to keep a bag of almonds laying around. Better watch myself though...if I'm not paying attention the bag may be gone in one or two sittings!

I've gotten hooked lately off fruit shakes. You can pickup those frozen bags of mixed fruit, slap it in the mixer w/ some milk and whey........good stuff.

Almonds:

1) The fat will help keep you full
2) Contains EFAs
3) 160 calories should fit in your macros
4) Contain a small amount of protein
5) Few net carbs which is important if you are watching your intake
6) Taste pretty good
7) Can be eaten on the go

Just make sure that the portion size is in check

almonds are great but i like almonds too much so i end up eating most of the bag...so i avoid buying large bags i stick to smaller or single serving packs
