What did you find most satisfying? [moved from Home Cooking board]

I have to do the big fast tomorrow so I am off to the store to pick up a few allowable items. No red or purple allowed, clear liquids. I have lemon jello setting up in the fridge, I have some orange popsicle type bars. I am allowed gummi bears, hard candy, gumdrops, orange candy slices, apple, white grape and white cranberry juices. I'm really not a sugar junkie and avoid it. The lemon jello is diet type and I have a box of lime to make up. If you have done this what has satisfied your hunger? Seems like all of the sugary stuff would just increase it.
can you do broth? i had to do the same thing a few years back and chicken, beef, and veg broth really managed to satisfy my savory cravings. the tastiest was just pouring some good chicken soup through a strainer and drinking the broth.
also, i find that herbal teas, particularly chamomile and green tea, are good at curbing hunger.
I agree on the sugary stuff. I find it amazing how herbal tea can curb hunger. I prefer lemon, nothing added.
