Hungry? It’s perfectly normal to experience discomfort whilst dieting. That being said, we don’t want our hunger to become unbearable. That is why I wrote today’s post, “7 Weight Loss Tips for Preventing Hunger.”
This piece is apart of my weight loss series. Over the past few weeks, we have explored the most essential weight loss advice that anyone should follow if they wish to achieve their dream physique. To read the first post in the series, click here.
Blend It, Stew It, Shake It
Studies suggest that liquidated meals will keep us fuller for longer. These include protein shakes, smoothies and soups.
A slow cooker is a useful addition to your kitchen. You may use a slow cooker for curries, stews and many other liquid based meals. Furthermore, a slow cooker will simplify the planning of your diet through allowing you to prepare meals far in advance.
Eat Plenty of Vegetables
Although vegetables are full of nutritional goodness, they contain very few calories.
You can eat yourself full to the brim and remain in your calorie deficit.
Consume plenty of vitamins and minerals by eating from a wide range of vegetables. Vitamins and minerals will boost your immune system and aid your energy as you lose weight. Eat dark leafy greens, purple beetroot, yellow peppers, red chilies and beyond. The more colorful your plate looks, the better.
Consume More Protein
Protein plays the role of growth and repair in the body. It also suppresses our hunger. If you’re on a high protein diet, you will have lower levels of the hunger inducing hormone ghrelin. Protein also increases levels of GLP-1, Peptide YY and cholecystokinin which are appetite reducing hormones.
Foods which contain protein include meat, fish, eggs, nuts, seeds and dairy.
Choose Low Calories High Volume Foods
This is an excellent weight loss tip. Some foods have deceptively low calories for their size. For example, a butternut squash contains 45 calories per 100g. If you wish to satisfy a sweet tooth, there are 87 calories in a wedge of watermelon.
Eat Bland Meals
Eating bland meals is not an exhilarating thought. Food fanatics probably couldn’t cope but this technique simplifies calories counting. As oppose to crunching the number of a complex omelette or curry, you may limit yourself to fewer ingredients for a simpler calculation.
Many of my clients have benefited from this advice. They claim that they’re less lightly to eat everything on their plate when the meal is bland. It doesn’t take a genius to guess why!
Bonus Weight Loss Tips for Preventing Hunger
Don’t neglect the basics. Drinking plenty of water may very well suppress your apatite. Stress may increase your apatite so ensure that you’re looking after your mental health.
Many people who are on a body transformation journey do a great job at following weight loss advice yet through neglecting the basics, they fall victim to hunger, cravings, anxiety and disappointment on the scale. Weight loss and a healthy way of living should not be interchangeable.
