Dieting? – Hunger Proof Your Diet

Fresh Produce
peyri, Flicker

If you are watching what you eat and trying to make healthier choices, good for you! It’s hard enough just to be on a diet. But when you are always hungry…that’s the worst. I found this information  while surfing the net at allyou.com. Maybe these foods can help you beat those hunger pains! Keep up the good work, you can do it!Potatoes - Potatoes contain a specific starch that lingers in your body, suppressing appetite for 24 hours! Who knew? Try tossing sliced potatoes with olive oil, sea salt, pepper and a pinch  of chili powder and grill!

Fish - Studies have shown that fish eaters tend to eat 75 fewer calories at their next meal! I wonder if that includes friend catfish??

Broccoli – Eat this vegetable and it can really help with your appetite. Broccoli has a high water content and lots of fiber! Steamed or raw, this is a veggie I can handle! Mix broccoli with your low fat mac and cheese.

Nuts – Nuts are rich in protein, fiber and good fats. The key is to eat just a hand full. Almonds are the best choice. Just a suggestion, I would look for almonds that are unsalted!

Salsa – Spicy salsa help metabolism and in some cases can help you burn 50 extra calories a day! Ole’. I put salsa on everything from my eggs to my salads!

Dairy – It seems the calcium and vitamin D in low-fat cheese and milk can help increase levels of leptin. Leptin is a hormone that tells your body its full! For a great snack try an ounce of low fat cheese and a slice of apple.

Carrots – Studies show that thinner people have 22 % more carotenoids (antioxidants found in carrots) in their blood than overweight people. This could mean that a diet high in colorful produce might help maintain a healthy weight! It works for Bugs Bunny! Enjoy sliced raw carrots with olive oil, sea salt, pepper and roast in the oven for 20 minutes at 425!

Grapefruit - The high water content a acidic ph in this fruit help food linger in your system, keeping you full and satisfied. Try eating a half of a grapefruit before meals to help lose a few pounds!

Beans - Beans are loaded with fiber and protien and that combination helps you feel fuller, longer! Beans also initiate a fat-burning process.

Eggs – The protein in eggs breaks down slowly – which might help keep those hunger pains away! Bake your leftover cooked veggies with eggs, low fat cheese and a splash of milk.

Avocados – The monounsaturated fat in avocados activates a hormone that keeps fat from collecting in the belly! Yeah!!! Just keep in mind portion size.

Green TeaThe American Journal of Clinical Nutrition says the caffeine in green tea may help your body burn 80 extra calories a day! Aim for 3 cups daily! Plus it calms your nerves and has tons of antioxidants!
