Hello! It might depend on your diet too. Carbohydrates such as bread, crackers and cereal digest quickly while heavy foods such as meat, fried food and high fat foods digest more slowly.

Some people find eating a high protein breakfast such as an egg or cheese keeps hunger away for a longer time in the morning.

Hello.  This is a difficult question to answer based on the fact I don't how active or inactive you are, so I'll just offer a suggestion toward both types.  It the trouble is stemming more from the "Inactive" life style, then boredam may be coming into play.  If this is the case, drink a glass of milk or water and go out for a 20 minute stroll.  You don't even have to speedwalk.  When you finish that, if your time out hasn't put food out of your mind, then go eat a small healthy snack.  Wait an hour to give it time to work, then determine how close it is to your normal meal time.  If it is approaching, try drinking water with lemon or nibbling on some fresh chopped crunchy vegetables
