Is hunger the one problem that typically throws you entirely off course on your otherwise sound diet plan? If you’re like most people, hunger while dieting can be a real challenge and can quickly send you running to the fridge for a snack when you know you shouldn’t be having one.
But fortunately, diets do not have to involve hunger 24/7 if you know how to set them up properly and utilise key foods that are going to help combat hunger head on.
Let’s take a closer peak at a few of the top ways to combat hunger on your diet plan.
Drink Plenty Of Hot Liquids
First, make sure that you are drinking hot fluids whenever you can. Green tea, herbal tea and unsweetened coffee work great here and will all help to calm a hungry tummy in a hurry.
Plus, if you opt for green tea you’ll also get some powerful metabolic increases as well, which can help you lose even more weight.
Fill Up On Fiber, Fat & Protein
When it comes to combatting hunger with your meals, the combination that simply can’t be beat is protein, healthy fats along with dietary fiber. Eat these and you won’t feel hungry for hours after the meal is over.
Carbohydrates, on the other hand, tend to stroke hunger, so be very selective with how many you’re adding into your diet plan. Choose wisely and you shouldn’t have a problem with them.
Check Your Calories
The third thing that you should do if you’re suffering from extreme hunger whist on a diet is reassess your calorie intake and see if it is in fact enough for what you need. Some people utilise crash diets in an attempt to get lean quickly but in doing so, just set themselves up to fail down the road.
While a low calorie diet is good, taking the calories extremely low will cause extreme hunger to set in and may also cause the body to hold onto body fat stores and burn up muscle instead, so is really not the ideal situation.
So next time you’re faced with hunger, use one of these three tips and you can put the problem behind you and move on to see the results you’re after.
