5 NATURAL FOODS THAT WILL INHIBIT HUNGER
Wow! You are planning on giving up on your endeavor to lose weight because you are feeling hungry? Do not give up! You are not alone in this. A large number of people that I have counseled and read about have also had such feeling at a particular time in their lives. But today, they have all lost weight. If they had quitted then, they would not have lost their weight. Quitters never win; winners never quit. Do not allow hunger to stop your mission of losing weight. In order to succeed in your quest of conquering obesity and hunger, I will help you by giving you some tips on how to hold your hunger as a hostage and not the other way. The following are some five powerful natural “weapons” you can use to battle against hunger. These include:
Raspberries stand tall among other berries due to its food craving stopping ability. With a cup of frozen raspberries, you will enjoy over eighty calories and a huge grams of fiber (about nine grams). It is an established scientific fact that a food with high concentration of fiber would make people last longer without being hungry, thereby reducing food craving. Other benefits you tend to gain from raspberries include manganese, potassium and vitamins. A cup of raspberries is okay for the body as breakfast, most especially when mixed with milk and banana.
This type of food has now gained prominence around the globe as an appetite controller and as a factor of loss of weight, despite the fact that it has been in use by the Asians for centuries. The food contains a high concentration of fiber and protein which helps in lowering the blood sugar, slow digestion and above all controls craving. It is a fact that a brownish pigment called fucoxanthin can promote weight loss in the human body and this is found in a wakame. Therefore, eating seaweed is a plus for you as it will lower your blood sugar, stimulate slow digestion, controls craving and helps you losing your weight.
Contrary to the popular myth about nuts, nuts help in squashing hunger and controlling weight. It has been suggested that the body doesn’t absorb all the calories in nuts, thereby it keeps you fuller and longer. It was also suggested that people who took shelled pistachios used about 41% more calories than those who took in-shell pistachios. Another benefit embedded in taking nuts and pistachios is that the shells can serve as a visual pointer to know how much nuts have been eaten; thereby discouraging you from eating more.
Legumes are filled with fiber, starch that are resistant and a protein that doesn’t digest on time, thus make it a more powerful threat to hunger. Based on the current scientific knowledge, an obese person eating a legume-rich food will lose close to ten pounds in sixteen weeks. Apart from that, it also improves the blood cholesterol level and makes you feel fuller than people who don’t eat the fiber-rich food.
Another powerful weapon you can use in repelling hunger is the egg. Scientific research has shown that an egg breakfast has the ability to control hunger for a full 24 hours. Also, it was discovered that about 438 less calories were used up over the whole day when eggs were eaten as breakfast.
