Helpful Tips To Curb Hunger

If you asked a person who is dieting, "What is the toughest part about dropping pounds?" they would probably tell you that the hardest thing is dealing with being hungry. Often times, the main way to lose weight is indeed to eat less food.

Because, let's be honest: you can only stand being hungry for so long. If your weight loss strategy involves going hungry, it is unsustainable and you are in for the crash and burn. Luckily, I have got good news for you. You do not have to go hungry in order to lose weight. In order to feel full, you need to fill your stomach. The key is in knowing which foods to fill it with.

For example, if you fill your stomach with 400 calories of chicken, you will have barely eaten any and still feel hungry. But if you fill your stomach up with 400 calories of high fiber, dense plant foods, you can eat much more food! For example, four cups of romaine lettuce only contains 40 calories! Think of how full you would feel if you ate that much romaine lettuce!

Now of course you will need to eat other things than just raw veggies, but you will still have calories left over in your eating plan to go ahead and eat some other foods like nuts, beans and whole grains. Those high fiber foods are going to take up a lot of room in your stomach and stay there a while too, because your body takes longer to digest fiber than it does some other foods.

The result? More food, less calories, less hunger, more weight loss! You see, the longer you are full and the more satisfied you feel, few instances of 'cheating' you will have to deal with. You will have more will power available if you feel comfortably full.

Keep this tip in mind the next time you feel hungry. Try to find some low calorie, high density foods to fill up on. Keep them in your office, car and kitchen at home. You will find that losing weight gets a whole lot easier as a result!
