Do you feel like you’re always hungry? You’re not alone; many people struggle with eating throughout the day and wonder why they never seem to get full. I’ve been there myself! This post will give you some great tips to help you feel fuller for longer, so you can lose weight and feel great:
Eat Plenty of Protein within 30 Minutes of Waking
First things first: you need to start eating breakfast if you don’t already. Even more importantly, you need to eat it within 30 minutes of waking, and it should be protein rich. This means eggs, lean meat, nuts, seeds – wherever you get your protein. Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day in this case.
Chew Your Food Slowly and Deliberately
Don’t gobble your food up so fast that it’s gone in 60 seconds. Chew your food up properly, slowly and deliberately. Taste the flavour, enjoy it.
Concentrate on What You’re Eating
Again, you need to concentrate on what you’re eating as you chew. This means eating food at the dinner table rather than in front of the TV, and no phones either! Mindless eating always leaves people hungrier, so be mindful of each delicious bite and appreciate your food.
Drink 3 Litres of Water Per Day
Water is a great natural appetite suppressant, but people don’t drink enough of it. In fact, thirst is easily confused with hunger regularly. Always drink a glass of water before eating a meal, and make sure you carry a bottle with you daily so that you drink enough. It has many benefits, but you’ll notice that you don’t feel as hungry.
Try Appetite Suppressants
An over the counter appetite suppressant may be helpful in reducing your appetite. I recommend reading reviews online to see which ones are best before going out and buying yours, as some will be way more effective than others. Remember to use these sensibly in order to reduce your appetite in the healthiest way possible.
Get Plenty of Sleep
People who get less sleep actually eat more. It’s been scientifically proven! Get plenty of sleep, and you’ll find that you don’t want to overeat during the day. The weight might just fall off you!
Stay Away from Sugary Foods
Sugary foods like sweets and chocolate won’t hurt in small amounts, but the more you eat, the more you want. You might vow to just have one chocolate bar as a treat, but I guarantee you’ll crave more. Keep consumption of these foods to a minimum by not buying them for the cupboards, and only buying one bar when you absolutely must have one. The less sugar you eat, the less you want it.
Use a Smaller Plate
The bigger the plate, the more food you’ll pile onto it! Use a smaller plate and you’ll automatically eat less. Clever, eh?
Try these tips, and you’ll not only feel full, but look and feel better too. I guarantee they work – try them for yourself!
