How To Prevent Yourself Consuming Calorie Laden Snacks

Top Tips January 13, 2015 By Lifehacklane

Cut the calories and you will lose those extra pounds. Simple, right? It should be, yet your body doesn’t seem to agree. Your stomach rumbles and eventually, despite your best intentions, you relent. So how do you prevent yourself becoming a bottomless pit for calorie laden snacks?

Brush Your Teeth 

Brush Your Teeth

Dentists will tell you to blush and floss twice a day. As it turns out, this has more benefits than simply cleaning your pearly whites. Most people don’t feel like eating right after brushing their teeth or using mouthwash since it makes food taste bad.

Breathe

Breathe

By simply breathing in and out slowly and deeply, with awareness, for a minute or two, time will seem to stand still. With perseverance, using the aid of a timer if necessary, you will find you will have soothed your appetite and will feel a distinct sense of calm.

Make Protein Your First Meal of the Day

Make Protein Your First Meal of the Day

Lean protein such as egg whites, bacon (who knew, right?) or low-fat yoghurt not only keeps you fuller than other nutrients, taking more time to digest and absorb, but keeps you satisfied longest if consumed at breakfast time.

Eat More Fibre 

Eat More Fibre

By eating more fruit, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds, you will find yourself feeling satisfied faster since fibrous food has the most volume per calorie. You therefore end up losing weight by default.

Drink Plenty of Water

As well as keeping you hydrated, water is fantastic ways of convincing your body that you’re satisfied, reducing your appetite while consuming no calories whatsoever. It’s a fantastic solution to those peckish moments when you would otherwise be snacking.
