Controlling Hunger Cravings Naturally

Posted by Garcia Weight Loss on 7/11/2014

One of the main reasons that people fail at dieting is that they get so darn hungry. They may feel hungry because they have not eaten enough or because they simply have grown accustomed to eating while, say, driving or watching tv, or, for example, at 9:00 at night. Whatever the reason, we need to be able to control our hunger if we are going to succeed with losing weight.

Thankfully, there are some simple, natural ways to control our hunger with two of the most effective being eating fiber and eating protein.

If you know when you tend to get hungry, a good proactive plan is to eat a fiber-heavy snack just before that time. A small cup of steel cut oats, bran, or even a serving of psyllium husk powder mixed in water can help you feel full and not hungry very quickly. Other bulky fiber-thick foods include cabbage, lettuce, and greens. The trick here is to make your gut feel full by filling it up with fiber.

Another natural way to fight off hunger is to eat a protein-rich meal or snack. In fact, there have been plenty of studies that have found that a protein-heavy breakfast sets up dieters for a whole day of eating success. According to Psychology Today, this is because extra protein sends a “stop eating” message to our brains.

There are plenty of protein-rich foods for a dieter to choose from such as our Pizza Protein Chips, hard cheese, meat, and fish. If you feel like going down the protein plus fiber route, beans can really shut down your hunger cravings.

A good rule of thumb to follow when dieting is to try to eat a diet that is made up of at least 30 percent protein, according to a study published in the “American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.” The study followed 19 dieters for 12 weeks. The dieters who followed a 30 percent protein diet lost more weight than those who ate a 15 percent protein diet program.
