Simple Tricks To Battle Hunger

If there’s one thing that many dieters struggle with over time, without a doubt it’s hunger. When you’re following a reduced calorie diet in order to promote fat loss, there are going to be times when your stomach is rumbling and you don’t have another meal scheduled for two more hours.
For many dieter’s their will power to stick with a diet is fine – provided they aren’t hungry. But once that hunger level kicks in, it becomes a whole new situation and now they’re struggling to think about anything else but the plate of cookies they happened to see in the lunchroom.
So what can you do to combat this? Fortunately, if you are wise in how you go about your diet you can help fight back against hunger so this isn’t as big of a problem that you have to deal with.
Let’s take a brief look at a few of the simple tricks that you should know about, that will help you battle the hunger demon head on.
Eat Regularly
The very first thing that you should be doing to battle hunger is to make sure that you are eating regularly throughout the day. Those who are eating every 2-3 hours or so will keep steady blood sugar levels and that will definitely go a long way towards helping you eat healthier.
If you know your next meal is coming in 45 minutes time, you’re going to be that much more likely to stick it out if hunger is present since the wait really isn’t all that long.
Add 5 Grams Of Good Fat
Second, another quick way to solve the hunger problem is to have a small amount of fat with each meal you consume. Fat is the nutrient that will provide the highest level of satiety so by consuming it regularly, you’ll have no problem going between meals without feeling hungry.
Create Balance
Third, also make sure that your meals are balanced. If you consume snacks that are purely carbohydrate based, it’s normal to be hungry just an hour later. Instead, get a good mix of protein, carbohydrates, and healthy fats.
This is what will keep your hunger level down as well as ensure that you get the nutrients you need.
Drink Hot Liquid
Moving on, our fourth tip to help control hunger is to consume some hot liquid. Whether it’s herbal tea, green tea, or coffee you choose to drink, the warm fluid in your body will not only help to hydrate you but will also help to fill you up.
Remove Subliminal Signals
Finally, the last thing that you can do to help control hunger is make sure all subliminal food messages are removed from the picture as best as possible. Don’t keep food on the counters or within easy reach when at home and try to avoid watching TV in the evening hours unless it’s prerecorded.
All it takes sometimes is a simple commercial on TV showing your favorite food to have you running for the kitchen.
By keeping these signals out of mind you will better be able to stick with your diet plan.
So there you have some quick tips that you must know about if you’re going to help cure the hunger issue on your fat loss diet.
