My DH is always hungry. He's also massively overweight but will not weigh himself, though I suspect he's over 20 stone so the household scales won't weigh him will they?
He has dieted in the past, after being prescribed a 12 week course with Slimming World by his GP, but since covid he's just gone silly and eaten everything in sight.
I do sympathise with his appetite - he doesn't seem to have an 'off' button. I daren't batch-cook and leave the second half to cool because he'll help himself to it and easily polish off what I was intending to freeze for another day. But its driving me mad.
Apart from the health issues, he looks a MESS, nothing like the fit young man I married over 50 years ago
Can anyone recommend a book of tasty, bulky, low calorie recipes - or suggest your favourites perhaps? I did start buying Slimming World frozen ready meals from Iceland, thinking if I gave him one of these every evening it would be somewhere to start, but he was still hungry afterwards, and he's not keen on curries and pasta being a boring meat and 3 veg man.
I'm lucky that I don't have a problem myself, being slightly underweight, so I make a point of never eating fattening goodies in front of him, but it means I don't really understand his need to eat so much.
If he knows I'm trying to cut his intake he goes off and buys sausage rolls or mars bars - so I need to be careful.
ps - don't suggest the 'sit him down and discuss' it with him stressing the health issue - got several tee-shirts for that one.
Ideas for tasty, bulky, low calorie meals would be welcome
