Have you noticed that you are hungry shortly after a large meal? It’s hard to ignore that gnawing pain in your stomach that eventually leads you to pick more food (mostly it’s an unhealthy snack) to drive away your hunger pangs. This type of eating pattern leads to frequent snacking and eventually weight gain. Even more so, for dieters who want to lose weight, hunger pangs seem to hit harder. Switching to low-calorie, high-calorie, high-protein foods will help you stay full and full longer without adding a lot of calories. This is an important key to combating unnecessary hunger pangs. By eating slowly and carefully, you will stay in tune with the abundance signals when you have enough to eat to meet your energy needs. In this post we have the list of 15 foods that will fill you up and curb your appetite so you can stay in the calorie deficit and keep losing weight. Download the Rati Beauty App for detailed and effective weight loss diets to get healthier, fitter and leaner.
1. Apples: Apple is the best fruit to include in any weight loss diet as it can fill you up and suppress your appetite with its high fiber content that slows digestion and keeps you full longer.
2. Salads: Salads made with vegetables like spinach, carrots, broccoli, tomatoes, lettuce, etc., and nuts like almonds or walnuts are a nutritious and filling treat that would also kickstart the entire weight loss process.
3. Vegetable Soup: A bowl of soup (homemade) can fill your empty stomach without affecting your weight. Aside from helping you keep your weight on, home-made vegetable soups can fill you up without adding too many calories.
4. Cucumber: Cucumber is the healthiest vegetable to add to your salad. We all love having cucumbers on our plates in summer. You can also have cucumbers in different forms, for example in your salad, in smoothies, in juices or with simple quark. The water content in cucumbers can fill you up without adding too many calories. Plus, it’s a waterproof vegetable and helps keep the body hydrated.
5. Buttermilk: Buttermilk is also great for your appetite and intestines. Buttermilk is very low in calories and aids in digestion as well. It keeps your stomach cool and healthy, especially in summer. The best time to eat buttermilk is in the morning so that you don’t get hungry until noon.
6. Water: We need almost 3 liters of water a day to flush out toxins and smooth out all physiological processes. It is a fact that the majority of people cannot drink even 4 glasses of plain water a day. There is also a huge misconception that fruit juices and other carbonated beverages can replace water. Water is extremely important for the proper functioning of the body and for a high metabolism. It also helps a lot that water is a calorie-free liquid and you can drink as much as you can. In fact, you can effortlessly speed up the weight loss process using a technique called “water subpoena”. With this strategy, experts recommend drinking 500 ml of plain water half an hour before each meal (breakfast, lunch, and dinner). This amount of water will stretch your tummy a lot and you would feel full with less food and fewer calories later. It’s an effective strategy to combat overeating. Plus, most of the time, we’re just thirsty and not really hungry. You can curb your appetite considerably with a glass of water. Frequent hunger pangs are most likely caused by dehydration. If you can supply your body with more H2O, you can lose weight quite effectively.
7. Milk: If you are not lactose intolerant, drinking a glass of milk can keep you full of casein and whey protein. Adding turmeric to milk is also a great way to boost your metabolism and increase thermogenesis.
8. Eggs: It’s a superfood full of nutrients, especially protein, that will keep you full for most of the day.
9. Oats: Oats are high in fiber, slow down the digestive process and do not cause sharp insulin spikes. That is why it is counted as an appetite-limiting food. In the Rati Beauty App you will learn how to turn simple and boring oatmeal into a delicious treat to lose weight.
10. Popcorn: Not the ones that come in microwaveable packages. We’re talking whole grain popcorns, which are considered high volume foods and will fill you up with fewer calories.
11. Pickles: The short-chain fatty acids in pickles and other fermented foods make the gut robust, and a healthy gut improves the functioning of hormones, especially hormone-controlling hormones.
12. Dark Chocolate: Say yes to dark chocolate as the high levels of antioxidants in dark chocolate such as polyphenols, flavanols, and catechins, and theobromine stimulate fat loss and encourage the growth of friendly bacteria in the gut. Flavanols also lower blood sugar and body weight. In addition, dark chocolate suppresses the appetite for sweet, salty and junk food. So, bite into a small piece of dark chocolate to stay full and full and to avoid consuming high calorie junk food.
13. Almonds: Almonds and other nuts like walnuts, peanuts and pistachios make a healthy snack with their high levels of protein, fiber and healthy fat. Not only do they keep hunger pangs at bay, but they also help with fat burning.
14. Walnuts: All nuts contain many nutrients (vitamins, minerals, protein, healthy fats, fiber) and you can be full with just a few of them in your daily diet for a long time. Walnuts in particular are high in omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, copper, manganese, and fiber that will keep you full and keep you away from cravings.
15. Paneer: If you are not lactose intolerant, paneer, or cottage cheese, is a good source of protein, especially for vegetarians. Not only is paneer extremely tasty, it’s also extremely filling, and there isn’t anyone out here who would say paneer butter masala, is there?
