To Lose Those Last Pesky Pounds in a Healthy Way, You Need to Understand Your Hunger
Do you often think how good it would be to successfully control your hunger? Or at least ignore it? Yes, it’s easier said than done. Your body is complex – it produces a dozen hormones that play a part in suppressing and promoting hunger, which makes hunger quite complex.
Now here’s the big problem with “hacking,” “outsmarting,” or “tricking” tips – not only is it deceptive to your body but, it also embeds the thought that you have more control over your hormones than you actually do. Plus, your body is interconnected, so even if you might block one hormone, it may cause a blockage in others, for instance, the hormone responsible for regulating digestion.
While you shouldn’t try to trick your appetite, there are a couple of ways you can manage it sufficiently:
1. Get That Breakfast
Eating something in the morning will help you get through the day without feeling under-energized. If you do so, it’s fine if you decide to go without meals the rest of the day. Be sure to throw in your proteins, be it Greek yogurt or eggs.
2. Eat Regularly
You don’t need to take full meals three times a day,, but it’d be great if you could make some room for snacks. If you starve yourself, you’re more likely to overeat later on. Go for low-fat snacks if you must, such as nature’s candy, dried fruits, or veggies.
3. Keep Those Meals Balanced
You studied the importance of balanced meals growing up – now’s the time to put that knowledge to good use. Ensure your meals have carbohydrates, proteins, dairy, and fats all included in the right amount. If you’re looking for something with a higher value for satiety, starchy and fibrous carbohydrates like sweet potatoes, whole grain, lentils, etc., are your best bet.
Wrapping It Up
What we’ve found is that if you listen to your hunger, you might understand it well enough to manage it properly. Due to diet culture, you might have grown up fearing or suppressing your hunger, making no sense. Much like thirst, hunger is a biological and natural cue that keeps you alive. These cues are normally indicated by the growling of your stomach or maybe an empty feeling.
However, if you continue ignoring it for a long time, whether intentionally or unintentionally, the cues will go silent eventually. In such cases, you might experience an inability to focus, irritability, lightheadedness, dizziness, and headaches often result from hunger.
