Taking Control Of Hunger

Introduction And Background
The topic of this article might intrigue you a lot because in all honesty, taking control of hunger does not come that easy. You cannot just tell a person to control their hunger just like that and it happens. It does not work that way. Try controlling your own hunger and you will see how it is, especially for a person who loves food. Nonetheless, there are easy ways to do something really hard and there are techniques which one can utilize to make the entire process a lot less hard than what it actually is. Taking control of your hunger is not impossible and is very likely, as long as you are willing to struggle a little and do the right things to achieve it.

Mind Over Matter
The first thing you have to do, before you even try to manage your diet and work out a physical regime to lose weight, you have to make up your mind. This is very important and probably the key element which is going to get you through till the end; determination. If you are not determined enough, you will probably end up dieting for a day or two only and then you are going to give up. What’s worse, this can also lead you to never try to diet again because you will think that you cannot do it. This is why it is important to have a control over the mind first and then the control over the matter comes by itself. If you are determined enough, if you have the control and if you really want to do it, you can easily take control of your hunger. Psychiatrists often tell a technique to their patients who find it difficult to stay away from food. For instance, if they want a piece of pudding or a scoop of ice-cream, they should look at it for a full ten seconds before digging in. In those ten seconds, they should shake their head from left to right saying no to themselves. After those ten seconds are over, it will be fairly easier for them to ignore it and move away as compared to before.

Know What Foods Will Keep You Satisfied Longer
Another way to control hunger is to know what foods will keep you satisfied for a longer time so that you do not get any unnecessary cravings throughout the day and end up gaining weight. You cannot expect yourself to eat only a few fries and expect that you won’t feel hungry after a little while. You will. But if you eat apples, this means that you can keep your hunger at bay and reduce your appetite along with it because apples are not only a good fruit but they are also high in fiber and so are almonds. And we all know how essential and crucial fiber is to us when we are dieting. It keeps us full and also gives us lesser calories than the average foods.

Appreciate Protein
Another thing that you need to be aware of is that protein is a food which you should utilize considerably when it comes to taking control of your hunger. Protein takes a longer time to digest in the body. In fact, it is the last thing which is digested and stays in the stomach for quite a while. This means that your stomach will contain food for a longer time which means that you will feel hunger after sometime, as opposed to having eaten carbs and fats which get digested quickly and empty the stomach. Appreciate protein and utilize it. This is why most people recommend that you have a high protein breakfast. It keeps you going throughout the day without having unhealthy snacks till lunch time and then you can easily eat the lunch you were planning on.

Use Water
Another way to control hunger is to drink water whenever you feel hungry and then eat a small item after it, such as an apple or even some almonds. They are appetite suppressants but the importance of water is what is highlighted here. Water fills the stomach and body and generally keeps your hunger a little tolerable, enough for you to control it till your proper mealtime. Always have water before a meal though and not immediately after. That is unhealthy and won’t help. Drinking it before a meal definitely will!

Conclusion
The conclusion that you can get out of this article is that taking control of hunger is not that hard if you have your priorities lined straight. You first have to be really determined about your goal and then follow it and you will pull through. Also research on food items that can keep your hunger at bay and you will do just fine.
