Smart Ones/ Lean Cusine etc., do they fill you up???

If you eat Smart Ones or those types of dinners, do they fill you up, or do you have to put something w/ it? And if you do eat something along w/ the meal, do you feel like you're defeating the purpose of buying the meal, or like you're cheating on trying to lose weight? I got a few of them and had one for dinner yesterday. I was still hungry afterwards and so I had a salad too. But then a few hours later I ended up eating a bowl of corn flakes w/ splenda because I was hungry again? Is it just me?

  • I've been eating them. I usually have salad or fruit with them as well.

  • I have them sometimes and when I do, I usually accompany them with a salad and/or a big bowl of steamed vegetables. I also try really hard to eat dinner a little later in the evening so that I don't snack before bedtime. If I eat a small dinner at 5 or 6 pm, I usually end up hungry again before I go to bed (around 10). So I try to eat around 7 instead, and most days, that works.

  • Nope. I can eat a bigger, more healthy homemade meal that keeps me fuller longer. Those things have way too much sodium for me anyway.

  • no not at all, i even got slim fast shakes to supposedly curb the appetite and that doesn't work for me either. i'm okay now, i had my special k chocolate this morning for breakfast, carrots and ranch dressing for a snack and had a michelina's lean pasta with shrimp and its only 12:37 and i know i'll be hungry before i leave at 3:30.
