5 Tips For Loosing Weight Without Starving Yourself
- Eat Foods High In Protein
In a calorie to calorie comparison, proteins will satisfy your appetite more than carbs or fruits; and you’ll feel satisfied longer. Proteins will satiate your hunger naturally, so it’s important to include them in your diet. Try adding lean meats, nuts, legumes, beans, eggs and seeds.
- Always Eat A Healthy Breakfast
Research has long shown that skipping breakfast leads to overreacting later. A formal study, published in the Journal of Nutrition clearly showed that, on average, people who ate most of their calories in the morning consumed significantly fewer total calories then lose people who consumed the majority of their calories later in the day.
- Eat Frequent, Small Portions
People tend to lose control over what and how much they eat when they let themselves get too hungry. A way to avoid overeating at mealtime is to indulge in small, healthy snacks (a piece of cheese with fruit or a handful of nuts) between meals, known as Grazing.
Grazing – eating small portions more often over the course of the day, has also been shown to maintain steady, lower levels of insulin. Insulin is a hormone that stimulates the storage of fat in the body, causing weight gain.
- Use Salad Plates Instead Of Dinner Plates
Most of us are completely unaware of the true “portion size” of most of the foods we eat. Many of us think we’re actually got the equivalent of two or three on our plate. Using a similar plate can help you cut down on those portion sizes, and trick the brain into thinking it’s eating more
- Chew Your Food Thoroughly Before Swallowing
Eating slowly is one of the best tricks to help you eat less. It can take a little bit of time before your full stomach gets the message out to the rest of your body that it’s got enough food in it. Chewing your food thoroughly and savoring each bite is a great way to slow yourself down. Take a bite, and then set your fork and knife down while you chew your food.
Take the time to enjoy your food and you may well find yourself eating less of it.
