Easy weight loss tip #1: Eat for satisfaction
Make sure after every meal and every snack you feel satisfied.
This will cut your ‘hunger cravings’ in half. Try one or more of the following compositions: high fibre, high-protein/low-carb, high volume.
For example, two oatcakes with no-sugar peanut butter are both high-protein and high fibre.
Other satisfaction boosting tricks include having a little healthy fat with your meals in the form of butter, nuts/seeds, avocado or healthy vegetable oils such as olive. Fat helps slow digestion and increases the body’s satiety signals to the brain, so you feel satisfied sooner.
You can also fill up on high fibre foods such as beans and pulses, or wholegrains such as brown rice and quinoa to help ensure fullness so you’re not craving pudding at the end of your meal – or seconds.
In fact, if you feel like seconds, wait. It takes roughly 13 minutes for the brain to register fullness from the stomach.
