5 SURE WAYS TO CURB YOUR HUNGER…

HUGE Lobster Rolls in Freeport

Excerpted from J Michaels

Maintaining your weight is a matter of burning more calories than you’re taking in. But when your stomach is making hideous noises and you’re surrounded by trashy, fattening foods (Hello, donut shop on your way to work. Hey there, chocolate-chip cookies in the office kitchen. Hola, junk food vending machine inside the car rental place), it’s way too easy to make poor decisions that cause your “calories in” to skyrocket. The trick is to follow a few tips for managing food cravings.

1. FEAST ON PROTEIN AND FIBER.

Both protein and fiber will make you feel full longer. There’s a reason a veggie omelet holds you until lunchtime better than that carb-loaded bagel. For maximum benefit, make protein 30 percent of your total calorie intake. And don’t forget about adding fiber-rich foods like beans, peas, chickpeas, and lentils to soups, salads, and sandwiches to keep you from mindlessly snacking. I also like to add pure fiber during the day to reach my goals. This might be Inulin or Benefiber.

2. KICK THE GRAZING HABIT…

Often, we skip a meal like breakfast or lunch will with the false assumption that it will create a calorie deficit. But ironically, it almost certainly leads to overeating and excess weight gain. This is because skipping meals causes a dip in blood sugar, which leads to overeating the rest of the day. Conversely, grazing throughout the day can lead to overeating because we never feel satiated and lose track of our calorie intake. Therefore, the way to go is to eat three nutritious meals a day, plus one snack that’s a good mix of healthy proteins, fats, and carbs. And here’s a crucial point: never go more than 3 or 4 hours between meals. It’s the key to keeping your blood sugar and hunger hormone levels stable.

3. MORE WATER PLEASE!

I’m sure you’ve heard that often dehydration is mistaken for hunger. In large part this is because dehydration makes us weak tired and lethargic so it’s easily mistaken for low blood sugar. Plus, water creates a feeling of fullness. So, when hunger pangs strike, pour yourself a tall glass of H2O. And drinking water after your meal may prevent you from indulging in a second helping. If plain water’s not your thing, try soda water and flavor it with crushed mint leaves or slices of lemon or lime. Your body will thank you.

4. THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE EATING.

Too many people eat because they think they’re hungry—when in reality they’re distracted, bored, or letting their emotions get the best of them. If you’re following my four meals (including a snack) within four hours rule, and you’re still reaching for more food, chances are you’re not paying attention to your body’s cues. Next time you feel the need to eat between meals do a hunger check. How long ago did you eat? Are you physically feeling hunger pangs or are you just stressed or bored? If in fact you aren’t actually experiencing physical sensations of hunger try engaging in a positive distraction.

5. FIND NEW WAYS TO DEAL WITH STRESS.

On that note, if you do find you are emotional eating (my personal hint….when I get out the gallon container of ice cream….it’s emotional), the most important thing is to be aware of it—and to find ways to redirect your stress or anxiety that don’t involve food. Reconnect with a friend. Get a massage. Dive into an inspirational book. And, of course, go outside and do something active! Exercise will re-energize you and release endorphins that will help snap you out of a funk.

What methods do you use to keep eating in line? Which one works best for you?

HAVE THE BEST DAY!

    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Firefox.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do
    with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.
    The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Cheers

    Link exchange is nothing else however it is just placing the
    other person’s website link on your page at appropriate place and other person will
    also do similar for you.

    My partner and I absolutely love your blog and find a lot of your post’s to be
    precisely what I’m looking for. Does one offer guest writers to write
    content for you? I wouldn’t mind writing a post or elaborating on many of the subjects you write in relation to here.
    Again, awesome web site!

    I’ve been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I
    never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough
    for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers
    made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

    Undeniably imagine that that you stated. Your favourite justification appeared
    to be at the web the simplest factor to be mindful of.
    I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while other folks consider issues that they just don’t
    recognize about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest as
    well as outlined out the whole thing without having side effect , other people could take a signal.
    Will likely be again to get more. Thanks

    Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?

    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having
    a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems
    different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.

    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
