Tips for Managing Hunger Pangs


Apple in Fridge

Two hours after eating a piece of whole-wheat toast for breakfast, your stomach starts growling loudly. Embarrassed, you quickly head to the vending machine at work. Despite your best efforts to eat healthy and lose weight, you can’t control your hunger pangs. If you can relate to this scenario, rethinking what you fill your plates with at mealtimes might be in order. To manage annoying hunger pangs, consider adhering to the following tips. 

Eat Fiber Filled Foods 

In addition to helping you feel full immediately, eating fiber packed foods can: 

  • Boost your digestive system
  • Decrease your cholesterol levels
  • Help you control your blood sugar levels 

When shopping for fiber rich foods, avoid processed products enriched with added fiber. Instead, select delicious, healthy options such as:

  • Apples
  • Broccoli
  • Pinto beans
  • Almonds
  • Sunflower seeds

Consume Lean Proteins

Proteins require more energy during the digestive process than refined carbohydrates. Besides helping you feel full longer, consuming lean proteins assists you with: 

  • Muscle growth
  • Cell growth
  • Cell repair
  • Gland health
  • Skin health

Lean sources of animal protein include grilled, broiled, boiled, or roasted: 

  • Skinless chicken breast
  • Skinless turkey breast
  • Sirloin steak
  • Salmon
  • Trout
  • Tuna

Delicious, healthy sources of plant protein include:

  • Quinoa
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Kidney beans
  • Walnuts
