Why Am I Always Hungry? 3 Weird Triggers and How to Get Hunger Under Control
Getting Hunger Under Control
I am a very healthy eater who doesn't skip meals, eats snacks regularly (mostly apples and oranges), and drinks plenty of water (more than 80 ounces a day). Despite all this, sometimes I am unable to control my hunger. What can I do to satisfy my appetite while staying within my nutritional goals?

I agree that there are times when fresh fruit doesn't control hunger. When that happens, perhaps a small portion of peanut butter on apple slices would better keep your appetite in check. The protein in the peanut butter is satiating and can be a good option — as long as you don't eat the entire jar in one sitting! One tablespoon is the maximum you should have with some apple slices if you are trying to watch your weight.
Satisfying your appetite may mean larger portions of chicken breast and salad to fill you up — these are also good options because the protein in chicken and a salad with low-fat or nonfat dressing is so filling. In general, if you want to feel fuller, try eating more lean meats, fish, and poultry. If you want to eat quantity, try large salads with plenty of different vegetables, topped with low-fat dressings.
