Losing weight is quite a difficult task, and one of the important part that people overlook is not "what you eat" but rather, "How you eat". With the right action plan, you can prepare yourself for the day ahead and make sure that you are eating the right food in the right way to prevent yourself from getting hungry. When you are able to suppress your appetite, you can lower your daily calorie intake and thus lose weight.
Below are 4 simple steps to help you suppress your appetite and make it through the day.
Step 1: Eat less, more frequently
Eating smaller portions, more times a day can help you get from one meal to the next without becoming enraged with hunger. Following this step, it will help you feel fuller for longer period of time.
Step 2: Go for low-glycemic carbohydrates
Try steer clear from hi-glycemic foods and carbohydrates like white bread, white rice, baked goods, sweets, and other sugary foods and beverages. Rather opt for low-glycemic foods such as leafy greens, barley, beans, and high fiber fruit like apples and pears.
Protein rich foods are also a great addition to your diet, as it won’t really raise your blood sugar level.
Step 3: Drink a 500ml of water between meals
It will help curb your appetite. Drinking water raises your metabolism, notes a study published in the November 2010 issue of the “American Journal of Physiology.” Drinking two glasses of water at once increases the rate at which your body burns calories and reduces your appetite so that you take in fewer calories.
Step 4: Use suplements
Take a fiber rich supplement with each meal to increase the fullness feeling for longer. Some supplements are packed with fiber to suppress appetite, which helps you to eat less and lose weight.
