Lose Weight Without Feeling Hungry

If you are on a mission to improve your health, then there are plenty of things that you can do to make changes. Moving more, drinking more water, and getting plenty of sleep can all be things that can help you to be healthier. But there is one thing that can make all of those things easier; losing weight. Being overweight or obese can cause some serious health problems, and it can really put a strain on your body. So if you are on a mission to be a healthier person and you are overweight, then looking to lose weight can be a good start. Combined with all of those other things, you can be on the right track.

 

One of the issues with losing weight is that it is difficult. You need to be moving more than you are eating, and eating the right kinds of food. But when you’ve been used to eating a certain way for so long, it can be hard to change. Which is why some guidance on the right kinds of food to eat comes in. There are plenty of sites online to look at for weight loss, much like Dietprobe.com. But today’s post is all about the foods that you should be eating to help you to feel full. When you feel full and are trying to lose weight, you will simply eat less. And when you eat less and move more, you will be on the right path to weight loss. So here are some of the best things to be consuming to make sure that you are feeling fuller for longer.

 

 

Water

While not a food, and definitely not something that you eat, water can still be a great thing to consume to help us to feel fuller for longer. Diets, for want of a better word, all have drinking lots of water in common. For starters, it does help you to feel full when you have been drinking plenty of it. But it also helps you to rehydrate properly. Often we may feel hungry, but in reality we are thirsty and actually a little hydrated. So make sure that lots of water is on your agenda each day.

 

Pistachios

Nuts are often called superfoods because of their great number of healthy fats and their ability to fill us up (as well as them tasting good). But the truth is that not all nuts are created equal. Pistachios, for example, can be one of the best to eat as they are one of the lowest in fat. They are also one of the lowest in calorie. So simply put, you’ll be able to eat more of them because they are lower in fat and calories. The fats in them will help you to feel fuller for longer, though. They can also be a great food to help reduce risk of heart-disease as there are heart-healthy monounsaturated fats that can help.

 

Non-Starchy Vegetables

Sadly, there is no such thing as a zero-calorie food (unless you class water as a food). But there are plenty of veggies that come pretty close to zero, but they are filled with other nutritional goodness like fiber and water. The veggies to be eating to help you to feel fuller for longer are things like cucumbers, zucchini, carrots, celery, broccoli, and cabbage. The fiber in these veggies helps you to have the full stomach feeling, as well as giving you plenty to chew on. You can use them to bulk out foods like soups or omelette, as well as eating them raw, of course.

 

Raspberries

If you have somewhat of a sweet tooth, then it can be hard to lose weight when you crave sweet things. Which is why finding an alternative that can give you a sweet craving, as well as some other nutritional benefit, can be a good idea. One of those things to be eating is raspberries. You can get fiber from raspberries that helps you to feel full, as well as them being pretty low in calorie (around sixty calories per cup). They are sweet and full of vitamin C, making them a pretty epic little berry to be including as part of your diet.

 

Greek Yogurt

Greek yogurt, as long as you are not lactose intolerant, can be a great snack to help you to feel full. The main reason being, that it has way more protein in that a regular yogurt has. Protein can help muscle repair, but it can also help you keep you feeling full. There are plenty of lower calorie options too, if you are worried about high levels of fat in standard Greek yogurt. One great way to eat your yogurt would be to have it with some nuts and berries, to make sure that you get full from the protein, but also from the fiber. Win-win!

 

Hummus

Chickpeas and hummus are a great food for any dieter. Nutritionist Taub Dix, over at bonnietaubdix.com, says that it can be a great way to keep hunger at bay. Mixed with those non-starchy veggies as mentioned above, they can be a great combination to help you to feel full. They have some healthy fats in that will keep you full, as well as plant-based protein. They are going to be lower in calories than other creamy dips and will offer more nutritional value than those counterparts too.

 

Almond Butter

Almond butter, or any other natural nut butter really, are so creamy and decadent, that you don’t need to have a whole lot of it to feel full. But once you have that feeling, it can help you to keep feeling full for a while. It has more fiber and calcium than peanut butter and way less sugar than a shop-bought peanut butter would. Teamed with crackers or a slice of wholegrain toast, you will have plenty of fiber to keep you feeling full, as well as making you feel like you really are having a treat. The whole grains take longer to break down, meaning that it will help to keep your energy levels up for a longer.
