Three Foods That Halt Hunger and Get You Faster Fat Loss

Tired of feeling so hungry on your diet that you are ready to eat anything that walks by?

Sadly, this is a common situation that many dieters face. Hunger is almost unavoidable on some diet programs, depending on the particular type of plan you are following.

Luckily, if you're smart with your food choices, hunger can be controlled reasonably well, making your fat loss diet that much easier.

Some simple ways to structure your diet to prevent hunger include:

Eat More Frequently

While eating more frequently doesn't necessarily boost your metabolism to that large of an extent, it typically does control hunger better.

Be Sure To Eat Protein At Each Meal

Protein has been proven to be the most satisfying nutrient, so try and consume it with each meal you eat for optimal hunger control.

Drink More Fluids

Finally, we very often mistake hunger for thirst, so be sure you are always drinking.

After you feel like you've had enough water for the day, drink another glass - just to be sure.

Three Tips To Preventing Binging and Sticking with a Weight Loss Diet

If you're goal is to lose weight and you're on a good weight loss program at the moment, one thing you want to work to avoid is binging. Whether we want to admit it or not, however, most of us have had a binge at one point or another.

While frequent binging is indicative of a serious problem, particularly if coupled with purging incidents, even weekly binges can put a halt to weight loss very quickly.

Thus, it's really in your best interests to do whatever you can to prevent these binges from taking place.

Here are some simple binge-busting diet tips to get you started.

Clean Out Your Pantry

Out of sight - out of mind. Perhaps the simplest way to prevent a binge is to just remove the problem food entirely.

Very few people will actually leave the house to go get whatever they want, so if it's not available, this is a very easy way to make sure you don't eat it.

Put The Food In The Freezer

The next thing you can do is put whatever food you want in the freezer (only works for some foods, however).

For example, if chocolate is your arch enemy, put a box in the freezer. Take out one piece each morning to have later on the evening when you can really savor it.

Doing so may make cravings completely vanish, and since the rest are still frozen, there is no chance of you eating those as well.

Never Let Yourself Get Too Hungry

Finally, the last thing to ensure you're doing with your weight loss diet is never letting yourself get overly hungry. It's when you do this that problems really start to happen and it's very likely that you will binge.

By keeping hunger levels under control, you will remain in better control over your food choices.

Don't underestimate the power intense hunger has over food decisions. When a growling stomach really wants food, it often gets what it wants.

So, keep these simple tips in mind to prevent binging on your weight loss diet program. The more you get the hang of saying no and taking control over the urge to binge when it hits, the more likely you will get the fat loss results you're looking for.

Situational Overeating - Will It Cause You To Gain Weight?

With the holiday season just over, many of you are looking back thinking that you should now spend this week putting in extra time at the gym and watching your diet a little more closely.

You stepped on the scale - you saw the damage.

And now the price must be paid.

But, is this really accurate? Did you really gain weight?

Understanding Situational Overeating

When you have an incident of situational overeating, as in the case of a Thanksgiving meal, you likely took in a great deal more calories than you needed and thus you saw a weight gain.

What many people overlook however, is just how hard it really is to add a single pound of fat in one day.

Considering the fact you'd have to add 3500 calories to your daily maintenance calorie intake (which for most people is 1500-2500 per day), and you'd have to consume between 5000-6000 calories of food.

For you non-calorie counters out there, that is A LOT of food - more food than many people could theoretically eat.

Furthermore, when the body is faced with a period of high calorie eating, it actually will start to speed up the metabolic rate, trying to burn off some of these excess calories as heat, or turn the increase in carbohydrates over to the muscle glycogen stores, helping refill them if they are at all depleted.

Therefore, the weight gain you are truly seeing the day after a very large meal is more than likely due to water retention from eating so much salt or increased muscle glycogen storage from the carbs you had taken in.

So, don't stress too much if you found you gained weight after the holiday meal. Your body will be doing whatever it can to return you back to where it was earlier and you should be able to continue on with your fat loss program just fine.

It's when there is consistent overeating above maintenance that you really will experience big problems with fat loss.

One Big Reason You Might Not Be Losing Weight

Tired of not having results with your weight loss diet and fat loss exercise program? If so, you're like a number of people out there who are ready to throw in the towel.

Before doing so however, you should really take some time to assess a variety of factors in your weight loss program design and set-up that could be hindering the results you experience.

For most individuals, there is one small adjustment that they can make that will get results moving again and have them seeing success.

One big reason why many people do tend to falter with weight loss is....

Lack of Sleep

Having a lack of sleep not only will affect your performance at work and the mood you are in throughout the day, but it will also make fat loss that much harder.

The big problem here is that lack of sleep tends to increase levels of cortisol in the body, encourages the body to store excess body fat around the abdominal region.

Further, lack of sleep also tends to make us want more carb-rich foods, which again is obviously going to be promblematic when trying to stick with a diet.

So, over the next month, make a conscious effort to get more sleep. If you get six hours right now, aim for six hours and fifteen minutes. If you get seven, aim for seven and fifteen this week, seven and a half next.

Slowly work your way up until you're around 8 hours most nights. When dieting, this is one of the best moves you can make.
