Use These Weight Loss Secrets To Feel Better

If you have ever tried to lose weight, you are probably familiar with the feeling of going hungry. Often, when someone wants to lose weight, they immediately begin going hungry. And while a key to losing weight is generally to consume fewer calories, it is no fun to be hungry.

 Because, let's be honest: you can only stand being hungry for so long. If your weight loss strategy involves going hungry, it is unsustainable and you are in for the crash and burn. Luckily, I have got good news for you. You do not have to go hungry in order to lose weight. In order to feel full, you need to fill your stomach. The key is in knowing which foods to fill it with.

Choosing the right foods is critical, because you want to fill up your stomach but not with foods that are going to lead to more weight gain. The trick is to eat food that is low calorie but high density. You will be able to eat a lot more food if you eat 400 calories of raw veggies than if you eat 400 calories of steak, for example.

Now of course you will need to eat other things than just raw veggies, but you will still have calories left over in your eating plan to go ahead and eat some other foods like nuts, beans and whole grains.

Those high fiber foods are going to take up a lot of room in your stomach and stay there a while too, because your body takes longer to digest fiber than it does some other foods.

The end result is that you are going to lose a lot more weight, because you are going to spend your days satisfied and comfortable rather than starving. You will cheat less and have more self-control because you will not be so hungry.

The next time you are hungry, do not reach for salty snacks or fatty foods. Instead, reach for fiber and see how it fills you up and helps your will power. Keep lots of healthy, fiber filled snacks around your house, in your car and in your office. That way, you will be less tempted to reach for things that will sabotage your weight loss efforts.
