I am on my second day of a low-carb diet. Never done one before, but I really need to lose 15 pounds to be on my ideal weight. Today I had a great big lunch. Burger meat with bacon and cheese, tomato slice, lettuce and brocoli. Also at dinner another great meal. New York Strip, with arugula, lettuce, spinach, and tomato. I found this thread, where some people are saying that artificial sweeteners are the culprit for continues hunger. They say that some people will produce insulin just with artificial sweeteners.

Your body needs carbs, but many of us me included tend to overdo the carb thing, which is why many of us are on a low carb diet at some point or another. We recognize that our bodies need some carbs, but convincing our brains and hungry tummies not to overdo it is a struggle. Since your body may still get hungry, instead of overdoing it with carbs, here are some tips on how to curb hunger on a low carb diet. Water has a way of filling you up. Drinking a few glasses of water will help tide you over until your next meal. You can always add lemon and Stevia to your water to spruce it up. Splenda is another sweetener you may want to try. The key to eating nuts, while on a low carb diet, is only to eat a handful. You can make a trail mix with dried fruit if you wish. Nuts are also easy to pack with you when on the go.
