@Regranned from @cartergood - HUNGER FIGHTING STRATEGIES
Hunger doesn't usually tend to be a major issue when you're first starting a diet. However, there comes a time when your body catches on to what your sneaky little plan to lose body fat and, in response, shoots your food cravings & hunger signals through the roof
Here’s the thing. When you're in a calorie deficit, having SOME hunger is inevitable. But it should never-ever get to a point where you feel like you're going to pass out or eat a shoe
Luckily, there are things you can do to keep your hunger at bay.
We all know protein is essential for building muscle , but another benefit is its positive effects on satiety . Having some protein (~20g to 30g) at each meal will help increase your fullness during and after eating.
There’s this super-nifty graph called the "Satiety Index.” (search it on Google, and it’ll pop up). If you're struggling with hunger, I recommend choosing foods towards the tipidy-top of the list as much as possible. No surprise, but most of them are whole foods like fruits, veggies, and lean meats.
The more routined your eating schedule, the easier it'll be to predict and regulate hunger . Whether you eat 2, 4, or 6 meals is up to you. Just try to be consistent with the size and timing of those meals each day, for satiety's sake
A glass (8-16 ounces) of water before your meals can help fill your tummy tum before eating.
