    ^ Yeah, I have a stash of granola bars in my car, 'just in case.' Doctors appointments can run too long. Tires can run.. .. flat.

    Not even granola bars. Not that they're "bad for you", but that's just sugar/carbs in a slightly healthier form.

    The best answer is, "Suck it up and don't eat anything" until it's time for dinner or whatever. Now, if you're so hungry that you're feeling lightheaded, that's a sign that you actually need food, as opposed to "hunger" which just means your stomach is empty and kind of bored.

    Heh. Some cost savings are illusionary. Kind of like buying cheap shoes at Walmart. Buy expensive $100 shoes and they last a year, buy cheap $20 shoes and they last a month.

    This advice is highly dependent on your individual needs/body/level of health.

    I feel like I've read that a lot of people misinterpret thirsty and hungry signals, but I don't really have a source or anything on that. It's anecdotal, but I find that drinking water often helps curb that feeling for me. I also don't drink enough water in general, though, so I guess it depends on your personal level of hydration.

    Between the amount of coffee I drink every day, and the amount of water I don't drink every day... most of my issues end up being solved by a glass of water.

    I know they're basically lean cuisine candy bars, but they're tasty and I like to maintain the illusion that I'm eating healthy.

    I recommend smoothies as well. My favorite smoothie involves bananas, milk, oats, flaxseed, and peanut butter.

    I know that some yogurt can have a lot of added sugar, but... eating yogurt and fruit as a snack isn't going to give you diabetes.

    ^ These kinds of posts are the posts that remind me that other people experience hunger differently than I do.

    My being hungry comes in stages:

    1. Light and airy -- not "lightheaded" per se, but definitely a little bit off -- reminiscent of being tipsy
    2. Some stomach growling
    3. Stomach growling to the point of it being VERY physically uncomfortable
    4. No more stomach growling, but even more lightheaded than before

    I typically start feeling that first stage between 3 and 6 hours after having a meal. And these phases are why I don't understand why some people can go all day without remembering to eat -- because stages 2 and 3 of the above process are impossible to ignore.

    Yeah, as hel notes, this all gets very controversial and individualized pretty quickly.

    My personal experience is that the growling goes away whether or not you eat. And yeah, a bit of yogurt, etc., isn't going to throw anything off balance. The problem for is that it's often more than a "bit", as most people are wired to start eating until satiated, as opposed to eat just enough to stave off hunger.
