Curbing your cravings is one way to effectively lose weight and maintain it as well. Unfortunately, weight loss diets often lead to increased appetite and severe hunger! Long gaps can also lead you to eating more in your next meal. Here are three ways to curb your appetite:
* Avocados: Avocados get their creamy texture from healthy monounsaturated fats, which take a long time for our bodies to digest and, therefore, can help suppress appetite. They’re also an excellent source of soluble fiber, which forms a thick gel as it travels through the gut, slowing digestion.
* Lean Proteins: There is growing evidence of the power of lean protein, like lean meat, fish, poultry, soybeans, and eggs, to help with fullness and weight-loss.
* Spinach: Spinach is a source of thylakoids, the chlorophyll-bearing parts of green leaves. But aside from their role in photosynthesis, research suggests that thylakoids may be helpful in reducing the amount of food we eat.
