I am having a salad for lunch for the second day in a row. I'm trying this again, I had salad yesterday and I was SO HUNGRY, by the time I got home for work a few hours later, I was tempted to snack the entire time I was making stir-fry for dinner....LOL...
I guess if I keep at it, soon I will not feel the need to eat a huge lunch, but still not be starved by dinner.
I think that probably is my problem, I am such a meat eater and I'm trying to eat healthier. Not to say that meat isn't healthy, but I'm trying to put more greens into my diet. I definitely think you're on the right track for me. Perhaps trying to go cold turkey on not having it for lunch was probably too much - I actually had a little smoked turkey (really, no pun intended) with my salad today and I did a little better.
Many, many thanks for your input.

Yup definitely you need protein in your diet, no matter what diet plan you follow. So for example my morning shake has protein, and then my salad has cheese in it. It's of course important to have veggies / greens too! So if you're having a salad for lunch, finding a way to have protein in it is a good idea.
