How do you curb your hunger?

sweetpea12 sweetpea12
I am currently trying to eat a little bit less. But I find myself hungry all the time. I eat mainly protein and lean foods. I eat tons of vegetables, and fruits. But I still crave hamburgers, hotdogs, french fries, and all things bad for me. What do you do to control your heating habits?

I plan my meals and snacks ahead of time. I make sure I get plenty of fiber in my meals as well as protein. Also, drink water! Often times thirst is confused for hunger. If you're still hungry, reach for fresh fruits or vegetables for a snack.

I don't control my heating habits. I have this space heater on high in this tiny room.

Where eating habits are concerned: It's easier for me to eat healthily during the week and Saturday because Sunday is pig out day at my gramma's house.

I also plan my meals and snacks on days that aren't Sunday.

do you eat any fat? that does a great job of curbing appetite. how long has it been since you made this dietary change?

It's so hard, isn't it? I am trying to diet too and I feel like I'm hungry all the time. So I feel for you 100%.

the first thing I do is really think to myself to determine if it's a physical hunger, or if I'm just bored/tired/randomly craving fatty foods. Sometimes I have to force myself to stick to my plan if it's that second option though.

The other thing that helps is using those cravings for particular foods as inspiration for meals....you can make a decently healthy hamburger at home, maybe sweet potato fries with ketchup. I also love applesauce with cinnamon as a sweet treat.

Wishing you good luck!!

Eating a lot isn't that bad for you if you eat lots of little healthy meals you will become hungry but you burn more calories this way.

I eat Seriously though I snack throughout the day to kind of curb it.

I don't, but I keep meaning to. I don't need to lose weight, I just want to be healthier. Maybe it would be easier for me to motivate myself if I actually did need to lose weight, because it's a lot harder to see general health improving as opposed to weight loss.

I don't need to lose weight, I'm pretty healthy! If it's not an appropriate time for me to eat (like right before bed) or I'm craving crappy food, I drink a lot of water and have a tiny amount of whatever I was craving. That way I feel full for a little bit and I got a taste of what I want.

I try to drink more water but it doesn't always help. Like, right now I have a huge chocolate craving.

Drinking water and chewing a piece of sugar-free gum usually helps me.

If I can get through a "detox" period, the cravings usually go away. A week is usually enough for me, so I just plan EVERYTHING I'm going to eat for that week. I've learned to tell myself "NO CHOICE" regarding things like fast food - even though the sight of the place makes me want it, I have decided it's not an option, so as soon as the thought enters my mind, I say no to it and think about something else. It's not easy, but the cravings do seem to go away after a week or so.

I've found that since I've started eating better, I find fattening junk food like hamburgers/french fries etc to taste worse. I try to eat a lot of whole grains and that usually helps.

Drink lots of water, suck on mints, chew gum, exercise, manage portions, eat salads/soups to fill you up.

Depends on the hunger...if it's just your every day run of the mill rumbly tummy kind then I find chugging a cup or two of water or some other liquid when it starts getting unbearable helps for an hour or so...it helps when I need to tide my stomach over until supper.

But if it's a craving...I try to indulge it, but only a teeny bit.
Like if I want chocolate, I have a Hershey's Kiss or some similar small piece of chocolate. Ignoring it tends to make me go nuts and eventually I wind up binging instead of eating a little bit when the craving strikes.

I drink toooons of water. You weight in pounds / 2 = amount of water in ounces you should drink each day, at minimum. Example, if you weigh 150 pounds, you should drink at least 75 ounce of water a day.
I like to keep some carrots cut up for when I have a snack attack. (Or you can buy baby carrots, but I find them to be a ripoff compared to whole carrots.)
I also don't buy shitty food. If I don't buy it in the first place, then I can't eat it.
I let myself indulge every once in a while, like when we go out for dinner. This is important. If you don't let yourself have what you crave occasionally, then you're much more likely to binge on it eventually.

I also drink a lot of water. And I try to eat veggies like celery or carrots as snacks. Eating apples are great too, as they give you natural energy that you would normally try to get from soda or coffee. Also, using a smaller plate to put your dinner on will give you the impression that you have enough food, and you will not be tempted to load up the plate, like you might with a larger plate.

Lemon water with chia seeds added. The lemon helps diminish feelings of hunger and the chia seeds swell up in size which make you feel fuller. Plus they have omega 3s!

Craving is very different from hunger, so it depends entirely on what you're talking about. For hunger, I eat small servings throughout the day. And I do get cravings once in a while, so I indulge in them from time to time, but again, in small portions.
