What is your favorite beverage between meals when you're feeling a little hungry?

I read somewhere to add a Tbsp. of heavy cream to your favorite soft drink to make a "float" when you're feeling hungry between meals. The fat in the cream will help you stay full. This sounded horrid to me, but I love diet Dr. Pepper and tried it...and loved it!

Coffee with half-n-half or milk. An hour or less before dinner, it's ale(mango wheat or IPA).

Carrot juice is SO good. It sort of reminds me of Thai iced tea. Earthy and sweet!

Latte Macchiato without sugar or a glass of icy mineral water with 20 drops pure ginger drops (= ginger extract) :)

I've still been having a planned snack between meals (on my way to get to vanilla No S; I'm still new) but a couple of times I've had whole milk or V-8 juice. I'm going to try hot tea with a little milk.

I remember in the book Reinhard says you can put a little sugar in your coffee, so why not tea.....

I guess you can put it in tea but if you can wean yourself of it you will reap health benefits and aid weight loss.

Years ago I had two teaspoons of sugar in tea and coffee. Hate it now. Cut down gradually and your taste buds will adapt.

Anything warm, even warm water which sounds odd, for some reason warm liquids calm the tummy growling better than cold for me anyway. I also find a big cup of patience helpful as well, as for me hunger comes in waves, usually no longer than 20 minutes.

A generous teaspoon of marmite in a mug of hot water. It helps if you like marmite.

A homemade matcha latte if I am really feeling peckish.
