When it comes to losing weight, resisting the temptation to snack has to be one of the biggest hurdles to overcome. If you’re new to dieting this can be a big mountain to climb, as when you diet, you typically eat less than usual and it can take a while for the body to adjust to fewer calories.
Here are some tips to follow that can help to suppress food cravings and stop you feeling as hungry between meals so that you stand a fighting chance of losing weight;
Appetite Suppressing Tips
Drink Plenty of Water
We know the importance of drinking water every day; it is beneficial for the skin, helps to rid the body of toxins and other nasties etc. Drinking a glass of water or any low calorie beverage before or after a meal will make us feel ‘full’ and decrease the urge to eat.
Do Some Aerobic Exercise
Aerobic exercise helps to condition the cardiovascular system. ‘Aerobic’ means ‘with oxygen’ which means that breathing controls the amount of oxygen that gets to the muscles to help them burn fuel and move. Not only will aerobic exercise help you lose weight, it also can help to change your body’s hormone levels and this can help to temporarily suppress your appetite. Examples of aerobic exercise includes; Swimming, rowing, cycling and using an elliptical trainer.
Have Some Soup Before a Meal
Having a small portion of low-calorie soup can promote the feeling of satiety in the stomach, by eating a small bowl of soup before a meal you will feel more satisfied and eat less. Any fluid even beverages such as Green tea can help to suppress appetite and help you consume less food at meal times.
Chew Sugar-free Gum
When we chew gum, the action of chewing stimulates eating that sends a message to the receptors in our brain that eating has already taken place. If you snack between meals when you get bored or stressed, sugar-free chewing gum can help not only suppress appetite but prevent feelings of hunger and boredom. It’s also good for promoting good oral hygiene as it increases saliva production
Add Hot Peppers to Your Meals
Hot peppers can cause a spike in the metabolism and because of the fluid you end up consuming because of the spicy heat, this can effectively help to suppress appetite. Adding a few peppers to your breakfast, for example, with your eggs or including a few chopped peppers in a sandwich at lunchtime can not only make meals more interesting it can also help to keep your appetite at bay.
Start Your Day with Protein
Lean protein is harder for the body to digest and absorb. Research has proven that those who include lean protein (egg whites, low-fat yogurt, bacon) in their breakfast will keep you satisfied for longer than if you consumed protein at other times of the day. It’s recommended that you consume one ounce of protein in your breakfast.
Embrace a Little Fat
Unsaturated fats including natural peanut butter and Oleic acid can help to suppress appetite as during digestion it’s converted into a compound it triggers a feeling of fullness in the brain. Consuming 1 ounce of nuts, some avocado and two tablespoons of natural peanut butter can help curb food cravings.
Alternative Way of Appetite Suppression
If this all seems like too much hard work, an appetite suppressant can provide another way of helping to suppress appetite.
