No need to starve them off. I eat 6 meals a day and am never hungry, but am eating less calories and lose weight. Each meal has protein and high quality carbs and low fat. For example.
M1) 6am Oatmeal with whey powder
M2) 9am Protein shake (I love the Myoplex original Ready to Drinks - RTD)
M3) 12pm lunch - something like chicken and brown rice, or left over salmon. with some salad
M4) 3 ish liquid protein and an apple, or something else.
M5) 6ish dinner, like lunch
M6) 9ish usually LF cottage cheese with something in it, fruit, veggies.
All of this adds up to maybe 2,000 calories, which is a lot less then when I'm not on the program and eat 3 meals plus all kinds of crap. The concept is that this keeps your metabolism at a fairly consistent place.
I broil up a family pack of chicken breasts, cut them up and put them in tupperware in the fridge. Gives me quick and easy protein to mix with things. Also make a bunch of brown rice and do the same. So to make lunch is as easy as chopping up some onions, green peppers, mixing 1/2 cup of already cooked rice, some chicken, a little olive oil, garlic salt, crushed red peppers and microwave.
