Any good lunch ideas?

I'm a guy 6'3" 210lbs and have a big appetite. Lunch is one one my big probelms (foot long subs, cheesburgers, greasy food and just eating too much). If I eat a salad, I still feel hungry - so I need something healthy and filling. Any ideas?

Lunch idea

Have you seen SuperSize me? Unreal. Avoiding McDonalds, fried food in general is the first step to take

I haven't seen Supersize me, but get the idea. I would say that eating the same of anything will be bad for you. If you ate only turkey for a month straight I'm sure a few a number of your lab readings would be way off. You wouldn't feel well and I'm sure you would throw up.

Yes but don't you think he dieted before that documentary so he'd have even more of an adverse reaction? I think that's why the lab tests were so crazy.

I wouldn't be surprised. I think we all like to blame someone else for our own faults. Blaming McDonalds is an easy target.

so how did the lunch go? Did you avoid fatty, fried foods?

Had a turkey, bacon and ham club, Orange Mango Nantucket Nectars and a banana. I feel full, but not stuffed. What are the thoughts out there on bacon? Is a little bacon every now and then a good idea?

Your lunch was prob about 700 calories - for someone about your size, that's about 1/3 of your day which is perfect! Sure the bacon is fatty but being fit is really just burning more calories than you take in.

You should never feel stuffed

People just tend to overeat all the time .. we are so use to giving our body so much food it craves a large amount to feel satisfied but in reality we have more then enough way before we finish our large meals... hopefully after a few days of eating less you will not have an issue with feeling full

The Lunch Connundrum

I'm not as big as you and just a salad leaves me hungry too! Try eating a salad with other clean foods, for example, a tortilla with some chicken and salsa and maybe some non fat or reduced fat cheese. Or, salad with turkey chilli and a piece of whole grain bread. I really like the Body For Life balance, where you eat protein, healthy carbs at each meal, I only wish he recommended more fruit and veggies...

I totally agree with that last post - get some protein in your salad! Also, you could try lowering the ratio of refined carbs in the meal. For example, if you eat a sub, make it open-face by throwing out the top half of the bun.
