Premier Daniel Andrews’ electoral office has been vandalised for the second time in just three weeks. 

The words ‘Sack Dan’ were painted across the windows and door of Mr Andrews’ parliamentary office in Melbourne‘s Noble Park, on Wednesday night. 

The vandals also attempted to smash a window. A brick was spotted on Thursday morning just outside the building.

An investigation is underway to find those responsible. 

The Victorian premier has been targeted in recent weeks by his handling of the coronavirus pandemic. 

Just three weeks ago the words ‘tyrant’, ‘liar’, ‘scum’, ‘CCP’ and ‘lackey’ were written across his office.

Dietitian Lyndi Cohen reveals the reasons why you’re still hungry after eating and how to stay full

dietitian lyndi cohen reveals the reasons why youre still hungry after eating and how to stay full

A lack of balance in your meals, not eating enough and incorporating no new flavours are three of the reasons why you might feel hungry after eating, a dietitian has claimed.

Lyndi Cohen, from Sydney, said feeling hungry or dissatisfied after finishing a meal is much more common than you think, but there are ways to tackle it.

One of Lyndi’s tried-and-tested approaches to ensure you’re full after a meal-time is making sure you follow the ‘hat trick’ ratio.

‘Every single plate you serve up should have a serving of healthy fat like avocado, some slow-burning carbs like sweet potatoes and some lean protein,’ Lyndi wrote on her website.

‘This humble hat-trick will help keep you feeling satisfied for a lot longer than avoiding carbs or fats altogether – and it’ll also make sure you’re getting the nutrients your body needs to be healthy.’

1. You crave new flavours

The first reason why you might think you’re hungry after a meal is because you crave new flavours.

‘There’s something called sensory-specific satiety – and it may have something to do with why you always have “room for dessert”,’ Lyndi said.

When you eat, the dietitian said a few things help you to decide when you’re full, including fullness, hunger and ‘how interesting’ you find the food. 

If you keep eating the same things, it’s likely your body will subtly tell you that it is now used to eating this flavour and you won’t necessarily recognise it as ‘new’ or ‘different’. 

The best way to get around this is to ensure your diet is filled with variety, and try not to eat the same meals too often, Lyndi said.

Even if you just have a mouthful of a new flavour, that should be enough.

2. You feel deprived

The second reason why you might feel hungry after finishing a meal is because you’re depriving yourself of what your body really craves.

‘If at the back of your mind, you feel like you’re not allowed to eat a certain food (like pasta or peanut butter straight from the jar), it will always seem “interesting” to you,’ Lyndi said.

Instead, try to follow the ‘everything in moderation’ approach – and stop ‘forbidding’ yourself from eating certain things that might not be good for you.

Make sure every plate you eat follows the 'hat trick' ration of protein, complex carbs and healthy fats (pictured)

3. You need more balance

Lyndi said you’ll be far less hungry after dinner if your plate is perfectly balanced.

One of the more obvious reasons why you're still hungry after eating is because you are not consuming enough, said Lyndi (pictured)

4. You’re not eating enough 

One of the more obvious reasons why you’re still hungry after eating is because you aren’t consuming enough.

The Sydney dietitian explained that people often under-eat at breakfast or lunch, meaning they’re starving and far more likely to over-eat or binge at dinner. 

If you fall into this camp, Lyndi recommends you try and eat a far more nourishing breakfast and lunch.

This will stop you from running on empty and needing to fill up at dinner.

Often, hunger is mistaken for thirst, and Lyndi (pictured) said this is because the sensations are similar, especially after eating

5. You’re thirsty

If you feel hungry but suspect you might be thirsty, Lyndi recommends you accompany every meal with a ‘large glass of water’.

Carrying a water bottle around with you during the day will also help, too.

worth a shot you can now buy bundaberg rum flavoured iced coffee for 3 40

Ice Break and Bundaberg have teamed up to release a new spiced rum iced coffee flavour for Australian customers to enjoy.

The iced drink is available across the country after the product became a success in Queensland last year.

It’s sold in leading supermarkets including Coles and Woolworths for $3.40, as well as independent retailers and convenient stores.

While the iced coffee may taste strong, it replicates the flavour of rum and only contains 0.3 per cent alcohol.

It’s also made in Australia from at least 95 per cent Australian ingredients.

The partnership is brokered by Asembl Brands agency who say the product is likely to be popular among customers.

Asembl managing director, Justin Watson, told FoodBev Media: ‘Last year’s launch of our first partnership between Diageo’s Bundaberg Rum and Ice Break was an incredible success in Bundaberg Rum’s home state, Queensland.

‘So popular was the range that we have continued our strategic licensing roll-out for the brand with this second product launch of Spiced which will see it available nationwide in petrol and convenience outlets as well as Coles and Woolworths supermarkets.

‘We are incredibly proud of this second product launch and are sure it will be a fan favourite when it launches just in time for summer.’

And this isn’t the first brand crossover customers have seen, as in early October Oak milk released Redskins, Jaffas and Chokito flavoured drinks to pay homage to some of Australia’s most iconic lollies.

The brand, which is famous for their delicious chocolate milk variety, launched the dairy goods into Woolworths stores for just $3.05 a carton.

Redskins are a red, raspberry-flavoured chewy confectionery that comes in the shape of a log. It used to be marketed alongside Milko Sticks because they looked so similar, only Milkos are white.

Meanwhile Jaffas are small round sweets that have soft chocolate centre with a hard covering of orange flavoured, red coloured lolly.

Woman stabbed her partner to death with a hunting knife she called Kitty

woman stabbed her partner to death with a hunting knife she called kitty

A Queensland woman used a hunting knife she named Kitty to stab her partner to death after an argument over home-brewed rum, a court has been told.

Renee Helen Blockey, 43, pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the Brisbane Supreme Court on Tuesday over the killing of John Windle on Macleay Island off southeast Queensland.

The pair argued after getting home-brewed rum from a friend about 10am on April 23, 2018.

Neighbours heard yelling from Blockey’s house where the two had returned after drinking for about half an hour.

A postman delivering mail about 12.10pm told police he saw Blockey covered in blood in the doorway, calling frantically for an ambulance as someone was ‘bleeding out’, crown prosecutor Caroline Marco told the court.

Inside the postman saw Mr Windle lying on the floor in a pool of blood. He was moaning while Blockey was crying and holding him.

Asked what happened, she told the postman: ‘I stabbed him.’

Mr Windle died from a 16cm stab wound below his left collar bone.

Officers found a clean, wet hunting knife in the bottom of a shower in the house.

Blockey later told police Mr Windle had angrily accused her of drinking all the home-brew and of being unfaithful. He has also hit her in the face, the court heard.

Ms Marco said the pair had a ‘volatile’ relationship.

She said Blockey told police she owned a hunting knife she called Kitty which she kept in her bedside table because Mr Windle scared her.

But she didn’t remember arming herself with the weapon or stabbing him.

Justice John Bond will hand down his decision on a later date.
