    Default At 174 lbs but need to eat 6 boiled eggs to feel satisfied. Normal?

    Hello everybody!

    I'm at 174 lbs but need to eat 6 or 7 boiled eggs before I feel satisfied 80%. Those count as a lot of calories for a single meal don't they? Is this normal?
    I'm keeping my carbs below 40g a day.

    Are you eating anything with the boiled eggs? Maybe your appetite is looking for something less boring than plain boiled eggs for satisfaction. Meal satisfaction is about more than calories, fat and protein. That said, even seven large boiled eggs only have 546 calories--not so many.

    Sunny is right. What if you put them in a salad? Or eat them with a bit of cheese. I personally hate eggs buuuut they're good like in a Quiché!

    Hi,

    Try making deviled eggs. It's the fat that makes us feel full. I follow a high fat meal with a nice glass of cold water. It seems to make me 'feel' the food in my stomach more.

    Weird, I know, but it helps me.
