Losing Weight Without Being Hungry

Losing Weight Without Being Hungry

Many people associate weight loss with being hungry all
the time. They’re afraid to start a weight loss plan
because they want to avoid the frustrations of hunger.

And yes,Losing Weight Without Being Hungry Articles a lot of times for many people it’s better to be
overweight than to starve. I’m no exception. I really
like to eat, so there’s no way I would be constantly hungry
for the sake being thin. What kind of life is it if you’re
always feeling hungry?

Our natural instinct tells us to eat when we are hungry.
Hunger is a signal telling the body that it needs to eat.
It is also a signal to the body that it is in danger, that
it needs food now. Our self-preservation instinct makes us
scarf down everything in sight in response to feelings of

Our body doesn’t care that we live in the modern world
where food is plentiful. It acts the same as it would if
we were living in a wild, having to hunt for our food. And
it is not wise to go against the instinct that is designed
to protect us from starvation death.

So, get ready for a surprise: you do not have to be hungry
in order to lose weight. On the contrary, eating regular
meals and keeping yourself full is what will actually help
you stick to your healthy eating plan and reach your goals.
Keeping your hunger in check will help you avoid
overeating. It will also prevent you from feeling
miserable, frustrated and out of control.

Try eating 5-6 small frequent meals as opposed to three
large ones. If you wait too long for a meal, by the time
the food comes, you will be starving and will not be able
to control yourself. Eating smaller meals more often helps
keep you full, and lets you be in control.

Never skip meals. Some people think that by skipping
breakfast or lunch they will save total calories, but the
opposite happens. Because they go for too long without
food, they end up compensating for it and then some later
in the day. In addition, skipping meals slows down your
metabolism, because your body feels like it’s not getting
enough food. So it activates its survival instinct and
burns fewer calories.

Another trick is to eat slower. It takes our body around
20 minutes to realize that it’s full. If you eat too fast,
you will eat unnecessary calories while your body is
determining whether it is still hungry. By the time it
realizes that it’s full, it is too late, since you’ve
already eaten more than you needed. If you eat slowly,
your brain will start sending signals to stop eating just
in time.

So don’t starve yourself in pursuit of weight loss.
There’s absolutely no need for it. Get used to the idea
that losing weight does not require being hungry.

Losing weight in a healthy way does not involve starving
or deprivation. That’s why it is permanent — if you lose
weight in a healthy way, you’re likely to keep it off for
