So, I'm an average 16 year old. I'm about 115lbs, and I'm 5'2 .. but I have a serious problem! I CAN'T EAT HEALTHY!:( I've tried& I feel more hungry when I eat things like apples all day. Any healthy, filling snacks? And that taste good. Also that are easy and that I can eat before practice, or workouts.

That's what's supposed to happen when you eat healthy. Your appetite increases so you won't gain weight.

I think eating healthy needs a mental shift first. The day I realised I took better care of my car than I did my body, was a turning point. I wouldn't dare put bad fuel in my car so why was I fine putting junk in my body?

Tuna salads are amazing
Plenty of protein and next to zero fat

I will just eat tuna straight out if the can lol well, after I rinse it anyways. I don't like how salty it is.

Low glycaemic index (complex carbohydrates) are very filling and not unhealthy (unless you overeat). They would include pasta, rice, and bread. If you want to be extra healthy you could go for wholegrain pasta, brown rice, and brown/wholegrain bread.

I dont think you should look into the snacks. But in the bigger meals. A satisfying meal keeps you from snacking alrdy half of the time.

If I get hungry and want a healthy snack I usually grab some uncooked cauliflower or some other kind of veggie. I find them to be much more filling than fruits.
Do you count calories?
