Get Full Without Gaining Fat
Feeling hungry isn’t fun. And when you’re dieting, you’re probably going to run into that feeling, because you’re eating at a calorie deficit. Here’s the thing: Even if it’s good for your health, your body doesn’t like losing fat. Which means it’s probably going to rebel against you a bit.
Nuez de la India helps you curb your appetite, but there are a lot of additional ways you can keep your tummy happy while you get trim! Try a few—or try them all!
- Blow Bubbles.
One study found that women who chew gum for up to an hour after meals have fewer snack cravings. Plus, have you seen some of the amazing sugar-free gum flavors out there lately? Put a few different flavors in your desk drawer. It wouldn’t hurt to place a few packs prominently in your pantry as well, so that when you start stalking snacks, you’re reminded of this tip.
And don’t just rely on the gas station—hop on Amazon.com or a high end grocery retail site. You’ll be astounded by how many options you have! (Like apple pie ala mode? Sign us up!)
- Find Low Calorie Filling Food You LOVE.
Rabbit food. Twigs and sticks. Not “real” food. You’ve heard low calorie foods put down in so many ways the idea of finding one you love might seem alien to you. Sure, you like a salad with just low calorie dressing, but it’s not exactly comfort food.
But there is something low calorie and filling that you love out there. Be experimental. Go to an ethnic market you’ve never been to, and try some new fruits or vegetables. Get online and start searching. Taste new things! For this writer, butternut squash is a lifesaver that can be prepared so many different ways. For you it might be something else all together.
Eating healthy shouldn’t feel like punishment, and there is something out there that will feel like a luxury.
- Streamline Your Social Media.
Now, the internet is a great resource for finding recipes and new foods to try… BUT… you should hide posts or unfollow your favorite foodies. Here’s why. Having photos of food sprung on you throughout the day isn’t helping your appetite. And more often than not, it’s distracting you with food you shouldn’t be eating. Like that brownie batter cookie dough Snickers covered microwave casserole you Pinned. See, even though that’s not a real thing and barely sounds appealing, just the words get you thinking about those foods.
- Reflect on Your Eating Habits (Literally).
Mirrors are a great interior decorating tool. And they’re a great dieting tool, too. You know how you shower and see yourself in the mirror and think, “I need to do a good job on my diet today?”
Put a mirror in your dining room. Find a cute one for the kitchen. Across from the couch where you binge on Netflix. Catching even a brief glimpse of yourself helps keep your goals at the forefront of your mind—and pushes the desire to overeat towards the back.
