Dieting is rough. Not only do you have to switch from the high carb, sugary options you used to love, but you have to introduce yourself to new items, which can be scary. Plus, what to do you do when you feel hungry all the time? Luckily in time, your body will adjust to your new diet, and you will end up feeling better than you did before!
Don’t turn to diet pills that are incredibly unhealthy to try and curb your appetite, use all natural appetite suppressants instead. They’re everyday foods that are cheap and easy to find.
Also, remember to listen to your body. If you’re hungry then you probably need some calories. Make sure you’re eating enough healthy foods to support your bodily functions and daily activities.
A Little On Appetite Suppressants
The purpose of an appetite suppressant is to help you feel fuller faster and longer to help you from overeating. They generally lower your gherkin or hunger hormone levels. If used correctly they’ll help you eat a little less to help your diet stay on track.
All Natural Appetite Suppressants
Feeling hungry? Well, are you sure? Try having a glass of water. Our sensation for dehydration and hungry are very similar, so take a drink before committing to a full-blown snack. Plus, water is extremely filling because it takes up a lot of volume in your tummy. Those who have a glass or two before meals often have a smaller caloric intake.
Slow down there Speedy Gonzalez, you don’t have to eat so fast. It actually takes us about 15 to 20 minutes to feel full, so if you take slower bites you’ll not only enjoy the meal more, but you’ll eat less of it to fill up. Also, remember that clean your plate rule? Toss it out the window, and listen to your body. Stop eating when your start feeling full.
You could also take a walk. Moderate exercise suppresses your hunger hormone, so a mid-morning or afternoon walk could eliminate the need for a snack. A brisk power walk around your block before dinner can really help you lower your intake.
Get spicy! Seriously, add spices to all your dishes. Put some hot cayenne pepper and black paper on almost everything you eat, from eggs, meats, salads, and more. Also, put a dash of all natural cinnamon on your fruit or in your smoothies to keep your feeling full longer.
If you’re dieting you’re probably already getting a little fruity. Bananas are full of fiber and actually slow down your digestion to keep you full for longer periods of time. Apples are full of fiber, nutrients, and antioxidants to keep you healthy and full. Plus, since apples take so much time to chew they make your body think that it’s had a lot more to eat than you actually have.
Grapefruits are the breakfast of champions because they’re high fiber, and delicious. They curb cravings and provide you with energy to get you going, without needing a snack break.
Keep in mind that some fat is good fat. Almonds are full of good fats and antioxidants to keep you feel good and looking good. They’re easy to carry with your for a quick healthy snack anywhere.
Eggs are eggcellent. Lame pun aside, eggs are a low-calorie food that are high in good fat. They keep you full for hours and can be prepared in tons of different ways so they never get boring. They’re incredibly nutritious and you can even quickly boil a week’s supply to have a healthy snack prepared for days.
If you don’t like avocados then we might think you’re lying to us. Seriously, they’re so creamy and delicious. They’re high in good fat, and this fat is so good that it actually signals to the brain that you’re getting full. They’re also full of key nutrients and antioxidants to keep you looking and feeling fine.
Don’t worry about being caffeinated. Even athletes drink coffee before they work out because it’s energizing and makes them feel more alert. It can also suppress your appetite. Sometimes people drink coffee as a substitute for a mid-morning snack to stay full until lunch.
Is coffee too heavy or acidic for you? Never fear, green tea is here to help you save the day. Green tea actually has more caffeine than coffee and is full of antioxidants to boost your skin and health. You also can’t beat the polyphenols in green tea that a linked to burning fat!
