Managing Your Hunger

These are tips and ways on how to manage your weight. But first you have to make sure to manage your hunger.

I have a free subscription from Kraft Magazines and one of the article that I would like to share for all the people that visit my blog are the tips to stay on track if you are very articulate with your weight. Here are the tips:

1. Slow Down- Your body takes about 20 minutes to signal it's had enough food. Leafy green salads take awhile to eat; giving your body enough time to recognize it's satisfied.

2. Break the Fast- Eating morning meal makes it less likely you'll overeat during the rest of the day.

3. Make room for snacks in your diet- Foods with fiber and or protein- whole fruits, cheese, whole grain crackers, nuts, peanut butter- will help keep you from feeling famished between meals.

4. Choose foods with lots of water- You can reduce hunger by eating foods that have a high water content- whole fruits, whole vegetables and broth-based soups.

5. Stay calm- Develop ways to cope with stress so you're less likely to overeat.

Before, I usually don't eat breakfast but after I read this article, I tried to eat breakfast and it actually works. I don't crave so much food during lunch or dinner. I eat snacks in between, most of the time I bring fruits at my working place. As much as we can, my husband and I tried to eat healthy food. Most of the food we eat is either bake or steam food. Although, there are times that we loose track on eating healthy food, but it doesn't mean that we can't go back on eating healthy food again.
