Smart Hunger Management

Hunger management is the key to weight loss control. If you have the power to decide what you should eat, how much you should eat and how often you should eat, you are on your way to a leaner and healthier body. A lot of people in today’s society have problems when it comes down to choosing the healthiest foods and the best portion sizes. People either eat unhealthy or consume way too much food at one sitting. This is what leads us to consume too many calories in a day. We end up eating more calories than we burn and in return we gain extra weight.

For those of us who have problems controlling our hunger, there is one word that we should be familiar with and that word is satiety. Satiety is a state of feeling full and we achieve that state by consuming foods that have higher satiety levels. For instance, have you ever noticed that you can easily consume three doughnuts before feeling full, yet on the other hand, a small bowl of oatmeal can fill you up in a flash. Certain foods, such as those rich in grains and fiber, can defiantly keep you feeling full longer. Being aware of what these foods are is the key to success.

Another way to control your calorie intake is to eat broth based soups or low density salads prior to your meal. These types of water foods make you feel full once your meal arrives thereby eliminating the chance of overindulging. You should also remember to eat slowly. It takes your digestive system about twenty minutes to inform your brain that you are full; therefore, eating slowly will help you put down the fork once you are actually full. These are just a few tips on controlling your hunger.
