How To Decrease Appetite – 7 Ways
by Court under Diet
Increase Your Water Intake
Dehydration is one of the major causes of an increase in appetite. If your body can’t get you to drink, it will try to get you to eat. Food is an important source of water for your body. If you care about losing weight or just controlling your weight, you need to make sure that you are properly hydrated at all times.
Ditch The Processed Sugar
Carbohydrate addiction is rampant and a major cause of increased appetite. When you eat processed sugars, your blood sugar will end up too high to be healthy for your body. Your body will then use insulin to bring those levels down to safe levels. Too often, our bodies are inefficient in this process and take our blood sugar levels too low. After that, our appetites are stimulated to get us to eat – to get our blood sugar levels back up to healthy levels. It’s a vicious cycle.
Eliminate Refined Grains
Refined grains have the same affect as processed sugars and in many cases, the effect of eating them is worse than the one from eating processed sugars. Refined grains can add up to do more damage, especially if they are eaten in high amounts. Eliminating them entirely from your diet will help you to control your appetite.
Many people are more likely to consume 2,000 calories of pasta than they are to consume 2,000 calories of cake. The results are the same – both end up as glucose in the blood.
Eliminate Unhealthy Fats and Oils
In order to decrease your appetite effectively, your body needs to be in a certain hormonal state. If it’s out of whack, your appetite will be out of control. Unhealthy oils and fats will get your hormones out of whack. Stay away from margarine, shortening, and any oils other than coconut, avocado, and olive.
Eat Plenty of Healthy Fats
On the other hand, healthy fats will help you to control your appetite. Coconut oil, olives, avocados, olive oil, clarified butter, and fats from Omega-3 eggs and fish will do wonders for your appetite control.
Eat Fruits and Vegetables
When you have a craving for something sweet, you should be eating fruit. After a while, it will start to taste really sweet. On top of that, you should be consuming a LOT of vegetables with every meal. These foods contain ample amounts of fiber, which is great for controlling your appetite.
Go Cold Turkey On Artificial Sweeteners
Artificial sweeteners are up there for the biggest villain award if you’re trying to decrease your appetite. They really mess you up. Your body prepares itself for something calorically dense when you eat them. When it doesn’t get the calorically dense food or drink that it’s waiting for, it stimulates your appetite. This is the major reason that people who drink diet soda tend to have higher body fat levels than people who don’t.
