Do you need to lose weight? Have you been thinking about trying a weight loss…
Do you find yourself constantly reaching for the nearest consumable item you can get your hands on even if you’ve just had your meal? The insatiable beast, that is your appetite can bring trouble especially when you’re on a quest to lose weight. Here are 8 ways you can try to control your hunger.
8 Ways to Control Your Hunger
- (1) Eat More
Don’t allow yourself to go hungry. Go ahead and eat snacks in between your main meals. This will prevent you from overindulging come lunch or dinner time. Also, never skip meals. Eat at least every 4 hours. Eating often helps boost your metabolic rate so you won’t feel too hungry.
- (2) Drink Plenty of H2O
Drink a lot of water every day. Inadequate intake of water can cause your body to confuse thirst with hunger. Drink a glass of water whenever you feel famished. Wait 10 minutes. Your hunger might pass.
- (3) Get Plenty of Zzzz’s
Too little sleep can affect your appetite and hunger hormones as your body transmits signals that it needs more energy in the form of food. Make sure you get at least 6-8 hours of shut-eye each day.
- (4) Don’t Feed Your Emotions
Know the reason why you want to eat. If it’s due to boredom or stress, then control yourself from taking a bite because you’re not really hungry. Observe yourself. Learn how to identify “emotional hunger” from real hunger. Look for worthwhile distractions instead.
- (5) Eat Foods That Will Make Your Tummy Happy
Go for foods that will satisfy your appetite. Curb your appetite by practicing healthy eating. Eat more foods rich in fibre and protein (e.g. fish, fruits, brown pasta, lean meats, whole grains and vegetables). These foods help you feel fuller longer.
NOTE: Please stay away from foods loaded with artificial sugars and sweeteners.
- (6) Take An Appetite-curbing Supplement
If you want to prolong feeling full, why not take a supplement that will control your hunger. Herbalife’s TC Formula is a great supplement to help you not just tame your appetite but as well as burn fat, improve energy and reduce fluid retention. You get to curb your hunger while dropping the extra weight at the same time.
- (7) Enjoy Your Food
Savour your meals. Don’t rush. Chew your food thoroughly. It takes 20 minutes for your brain to receive the “full” signal.
- (8) Focus
Do you talk on the phone while you eat? If you do, stop it. Multitasking while eating restricts you from relishing the food, one reason why you’re feeling hungry again a few minutes after eating.
Learning how to control your hunger is important for every dieter. Know why you are hungry so you can understand your body better and successfully tame that wild beast.
