You can feel fuller faster when you eat, without depriving yourself from the foods you most enjoy. You can also do this without any absurd dieting tricks, products, or unhealthy habits.
Chew Your Food
The average adult chews each bite of food only 5 to 10 times, instead of the suggested 20 to 30 times. Taking more time to chew your food not only improves digestion, but will make you feel fuller faster—because you will give your meal more time to work its way down to your tummy, in turn alerting you as soon as you are full.
Eat A Well-Balanced Meal
The reasons to eat a well-balanced meal are never ending, one of which is that your body may be telling you it’s hungry—simply because it is lacking a specific vitamin or nutrient. Have you ever craved a specific fruit or veggie, or protein source? This is often because your body requires a specific nutrient. Give your body what it needs, and you will feel fuller faster.
Fiber And Water
Fiber content and water are often an essential part of any short-term diet. However, you should make fiber and water a higher priority in your day-to-day diet. Sometimes when you feel hungry, your body is actually craving water or filling fiber. Aim for at least 64 ounces of hydrating fluids each day, and 30 grams of fiber a day for men, and 25 a day for women. Just don’t overdo it.
The tips above will make you feel fuller faster, and more satisfied with each meal!
