Lose Weight Without Being Hungry

Losing weight is usually associated with not eating very much and being constantly hungry all the time, which is why so many people are so loathed to do it and if they do give it a go, understandably they usually fail.  The trick is not to assume that to lose weight you have to starve and be hungry. You do not actually have to eat less food to lose weight, but more change what kind of food you are eating.

By eating when you feel hungry, it will reduce the need to eat more between meals. So if you are literally starving yourself, you are likely to end up putting on more weight. It is far better to eat consistently, but smaller amounts, for example 5-6 small meals a day as opposed to 3 very large meals. The secret is not to wait too long between meals so that there is no temptation to snack which will undo all your hard work. 

Most people snack because they are hungry; they have not eaten enough or have not eaten anything so before lunchtime they find themselves snacking. Never skip breakfast, this will mean you will eat a large lunch and by skipping meals, your body’s metabolism slows down and does the opposite of what you expect and holds onto the calories instead of burning them off.

Eating little and often is also good for people who get a slump in the afternoon where they feel very lethargic, this is due to a drop in sugar levels due to not eating enough.

Eating small meals or eating healthy snacks between meals will stabilize your blood sugar and ensure you do not get that uncontrollable tiredness in the middle of the afternoon, so you won’t be reaching for the energy drink or chocolate bar for a boost of energy.

Eating slower is another way to ensure you do not over eat, but you eat enough to feel satisfied. It takes about 20 minutes for the body to realize it is full so if you eat too quickly, the body will take longer to realize it is full up and obviously by that time you have eaten too much and it is too late.

So by eating more slowly, the brain will send signals that you should stop eating just in time.

So as you can see, there really is no need to be hungry to lose weight; you are far more likely to keep the weight off if you eat sensibly and regularly. 

Eating less food can sometimes be detrimental to weight loss not to mention your health. A varied, balanced diet coupled with exercise and a bit of determination and willpower will ensure that you lose weight.
