6. Go For Healthy Fats
Healthy fats like those found in avocados, nuts, seeds, and fish are a great source of energy, and they also help us to absorb important vitamins into our systems. These fats are also known for their ability to help keep you feeling full.
7. Dodge Simple Carbohydrates
Things like white bread and sugars (found in soda) – as delicious as they are – should be avoided when possible. Although they provide energy, they lack nutritional value, quickly spike your blood sugar, and won’t keep you feeling satisfied.
8. Chew Gum
Chewing sugar free gum is a great way to keep from over indulging. If you’re chewing a wad when you’re surrounded by food, it helps to keep your mouth occupied! Gum is also known to help lower cravings for sweet and salty food.
9. Drink A Glass Of Water
Drinking a glass of water before eating helps to fill you up, and drinking water throughout the meal also gives your brain a chance to register fullness. Low water intake has been linked to obesity in many.
10. Cave Into Your Cravings
It’s better to cave into a craving in moderation, than to blow it off and completely over-indulge later. The more you avoid foods that you love, the more desirable they’ll be to you – so don’t make them a danger.
