Six Simple Tricks for Controlling Your Appetite

Six Simple Tricks for Controlling Your AppetiteOne of the toughest challenges of trying to lose weight is learning the healthy way to control your appetite. Most dieters don’t realize that starving yourself for lengthy periods of time will have a negative effect on your health and your weight loss goals. Your body starts to store fat intentionally, so it has a reserve to live off of during the periods where you are not eating enough. Going too long between meals will also slow down your metabolism.

The best way to control your appetite is to consistently nourish it with healthy choices. Your body should never feel deprived of food, but it never be stuffed to the point that it feels uncomfortable. Maintaining that perfect balance is possible, but it takes a little planning.

Here are six simple tricks for controlling your appetite:

1.     Plan Smaller Portions 

It might sound pretty obvious, but it is so easy to eat too much if you put too much food on your plate or if you cook massive meals. You don’t want to waste the leftovers, so you end up eating everything that you made even if you are already full. Make smaller meals and divide them into healthy portion sizes before you start to eat.

2.     Plan to Eat More Often

Eating a small snack every couple of hours will boost your metabolic rate and keep your portion sizes down. Fill small Ziploc bags with healthy snacks like carrots, celery sticks, cherry tomatoes, berries, almonds, and slices of fruit. Yogurt and Nutrimeal bars are also good choices. These handy pre-packaged snacks will provide you with convenient and healthy choices for in between meals. If you have snacks that are good for you readily available, it will make it easier to resist the temptation of chocolate, candy, and chips.

3.     Try to Eat Slower

If you eat too fast, your body won’t have a chance to tell your brain that it is full. Make a conscientious effort to pause for 5-10 seconds between bites. You’ll be surprised with how much less food you end up eating if you give your body enough time to realize that it is full.

4.     Drink Before Meals

Drinking a glass of water before each meal will decrease the total amount of food you end up consuming. It will feel your stomach with liquid, so you will feel full sooner. Your body needs water anyway, so why not drink  glass before each meal.

5.     Fight the Urge to Binge

One common mistake that most people make is starving themselves for several hours and then binging on so much food that their stomach cannot properly digest it. Depriving yourself of food for long periods will usually result in stuffing your face with more than you actually need to feel full.

6.     Drink a Nutrimeal Shake

A filling shake is a simple and effective way to control your appetite and increase your energy without ruining your weight loss efforts. Chocolate Whey Nutrimeal is made with all-natural sweeteners and flavors, and it has 15 grams of whey protein and 8 grams of dietary fiber. It is also gluten free and soy-protein.
