5 Simple Ideas to Control Hunger!

Control Hunger Info.jpg

Why do some people seem able to control their hunger pangs, while others are driven to binge eating? (Despite the best intentions!) Appetite is a complex issue - but here are some super simple tips to staying in control.

  1. Consume protein and fat with each meal – this keeps you feeling fuller for longer and stabilises blood sugar levels
  2. Check your hydration – its easy to confuse hunger signals with thirst
  3. Unravel emotions – we eat for many reasons other than hunger… are you bored? Tired? Upset? Stressed? 
  4. Just Eat Real Food – artificial food ingredients can confuse your satiety signals. Basically your body doesn’t recognise them as food!
  5. Slow down! – digestion starts in the brain, so take some time to be present with your food, chew well and enjoy the process of eating.
