Thanks! I'm going to try spreading out my meals more. This morning I made a breakfast burrito with potatoes, peppers, egg whites and ezekiel 4:9 tortilla. Total cal. 330. I split it in half and put the rest away for late morning. I ate the other half with 1/4 cup of black beans and 1/2 cup of OJ. I am pretty full :) I have noticed the past few days that I'll get pretty fun but then 3 hours late I'm super hungry again, so I'm hoping splitting my meal up into two will help. I will post at the end of the day how it goes. I will mostly be sitting at the computer today, no classes/work but massive homework assignment so I might not get as hungry. I'm thinking about going for a hike or bike ride though.
Does your schedule allow you to spread your food out a little more and have smaller meals more often so you have one closer to "hunger time"? A glass of water or some sugar free cinnamon gum sometimes gets me over the hump til meal time. You may be right that you are still adjusting to the new eating routine and it will get easier in time. Hang in there. You can do this!

I'm new here to spark people, loving it already! I'm on day three and having a little trouble with mental foggness, tiredness and hunger before dinner. Day one was easy, I ate 1250 without feeling it. Yesterday was ok, but by the time I got home from a busy day around 4:30 I was starving and feeling uneasy as I cooked dinner. Today, Has been very difficult, and I've been doing my best to wait patiently for the BF to come home so we can go out to the local health food restaurant for dinner. I ate a couple of ounces of lean ham to stave off hunger.... I'm a busy person, student and work, I can't really afford to lose mental sharpness. Dinner time is usually the time when I can cook or go out, so I try to save a reasonable amount (500-800) calories for dinner. I eat really healthy, no junk like fast food or low nutrient crap... so it's not that I'm not eating enough protein or complex carbs. Am I just getting used to this? Any tips on how to stave off hunger without shaving off too many calories from the main meals?
