33 billion dollars is spent yearly by Americans trying to lose weight. Even if the diets are successful 95% of the dieters will put the weight back on. One of the biggest complaints by people trying to shed weight is ” I never feel full.” Researchers have honed in on this factor and scientists may have pin pointed some the key to fighting the “battle of the buldge.”
A hormone called ghrelin released in your stomach and your intestinal tract which signals your brain and compels you to eat. However, you can supress this hormone by eating certain foods to keep the ghrelin at bay and stay full.
This is where our title comes in. If you knew which foods to eat to keep yourself full and aid in weight loss, would you eat them???
Which Foods Should You Choose To Stay Full ?
PROTEIN, PROTEIN, PROETIN!! Oh and don’t forget the fiber. I advise my clients to fill up on protein every 3-4 hours. From a scientific stand point, eating through out the day keeps your ghrelin levels low so that you can control what you eat.
The weakest point of the day is usually night time. People hit the snacks late. My solution is to fill your body with a protein shake that is low in carbohydrates BEFORE you hit the cabinet.
Since I’m gluten intolerant and sensitive to dairy I use the Jarrow’s Brown rice protein shake. Another option that I recommend to clients is Isopure which is low in carbohydrates and calories.
Use the science and this fitness tip to help you fight the urgde to overendulge. The leaner you is just around the corner so keep reading!
