weight-loss-food-to-eat1
Certain types of food are nutritious and can keep you well-satiated.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could easily help yourself from eating too much? It wouldn’t be very hard for you to blurt out, “No, thank you.” because you actually mean it and you’re actually not hungry.

That hungry feeling is what makes you over eat. It’s very hard to stay within the parameters of your weight loss plan each time you feel hungry. You just end up eating more, succumbing to every kind of food temptation there is.

The best way to lose weight and to keep it off is to stay satiated all the time. Now this does not give you an excuse to eat whatever that’s there. You really shouldn’t do that.

What it means to stay satiated is to eat small portions of healthy foods round the clock.  This way, you won’t have to deal with hunger and you can easily say, “No thank you”. Eating these six healthy foods can easily help curb your appetite.

Pistachios

You want to curb your appetite? Eat some pistachios and other nuts. In spite of the high calorie-content of nuts, they can actually help you lose weight. The reason for that is because they help keep you feel fuller for a longer time. Nuts can also boost your metabolism.

When it comes to eating pistachios, you’ll benefit more from the in-shelled pistachios. Studies show that folks who ate in-shelled pistachios consumed lesser calories as compared to the folks who chose to snack on the shelled pistachios.

Seeing a pile of shells sends a message that it’s time to stop eating. This somehow gives you a feeling of fullness. It will also help you resist whatever food comes along.

Apples

Yes, apples not only keep the doctor away but they also melt the pounds away. Apples are loaded with soluble fiber that can easily make you feel full according to research on diet and weight loss site SavvyWP.com. At the same time, they contain a natural compound called, ursolic acid that can help burn a lot of fat.

You will surely benefit from eating the whole apple. Not only will it help curb your appetite, you’ll have glowing skin as well.

Eggs

If you worry about overeating during the day, you should make sure to eat an egg for breakfast. Eggs actually quell ghrelin, the hormone that makes you feel hungry.  At the same time, they elevate two other hormones that help keep you feel satiated the whole day.

So don’t think twice about eating that egg for breakfast. It will definitely help curb your appetite. You’ll be feeling full the whole day.

Mangoes

Now, you have every reason to eat mangoes. These yummy fruits are loaded with bioactive ingredients, which includes a compound called mangiferin. This particular compound helps trim the body fat.

There’s also one more good reason as to why you should be eating more mangoes. These stone fruits actually help control your blood sugar levels. So don’t hesitate to add some mangoes to your diet. They’re good for your health. At the same time, you’ll be feeling full and satiated for a longer period of time.

Beans

According to a study that was published in the Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics, overweight folks were able to lose ten pounds in a span of 16 weeks by adding more nuts to their diet. Not only did their weight improve, so did their blood cholesterol levels.

Beans, such as lentils, chickpeas, and peas, are loaded with lots and lots of fiber. You can also get a lot of protein from beans. These fiber-rich foods can easily help you control your cravings, eventually curbing your appetite.

Greek Yogurt

Yes, you can indulge in yogurt so long as it’s the Greek variety. You’ve probably heard about the benefits of eating Greek yogurt. There’s just so much fuss about it since it can really help in weight loss

According to research, the calcium, protein, and probiotics help keep the weight down. So stop reaching out for certain foods that will only ruin your diet. Instead, opt to indulge in a creamy cup of Greek yogurt. This way, you can easily watch your weight and curb your appetite.

Curbing your appetite is not an easy thing to do. Some folks go to the extent of taking appetite suppressants just so they can curb their appetite. Don’t make the mistake of doing that. You will only endanger your health. These six healthy foods can help you curb your appetite the natural way.

    That’s an interesting thing you pointed out about apples containing ursolic acid. I’ve looked it up and YES, you are absolutely right about it. Thanks to you, I’ve stopped peeling my apples. Except for the seeds, I eat everything. Thanks again for the info.:)

    The question is, how do we stay away from crappy food? That kind of food is everywhere and it’s hard to resist it. BistroMD looks promising but I won’t know until I try it.

    I would rather curb my appetite naturally by eating the various foods on the list. That is a safer way as compared to resorting to artificial means to feel full. That’s just too dangerous. I don’t want to risk my health for the sake of weight loss.

    Apples are great. I slice them up and cook them in cinnamon. I must admit that I add a little butter (Ooops!) but there’s no sugar. I cook the apples until they are soft and mushy, almost like a filling for a pie. Then I eat it for dessert. I just love it. My kids eat it ala mode. The cinnamon just makes it taste amazing. This is a no sugar recipe. So don’t be scared to try it. 🙂

    Apples are great! I usually cut two apples into bits and pieces. Then I stew them into a mixture of water and cinnamon. When the apples are cooked, I add in some finely blended rolled oats. Then I add in some low fat milk. This makes up for my craving for apple pie.

      I noticed you didn’t add sugar, not even a pinch of it? I’m going to try your recipe but I’m just curious about one thing; it looks more like oats with apple and cinnamon than apple pie. Anyway, I’m going to find out for myself. Thanks for sharing.

        Sorry for the late reply. No sugar at all. You will get a natural sweet taste from the apples and the cinnamon as well. This is pretty much my very own version of apple crumble. On some days, I add a little ice cream but not all the time because I’m really trying to avoid sugar. 🙂

    I never thought mangoes were good for weight loss. There were always considered to be sugar-laden fruits. I’m glad they’re not because I love mangoes. Now, I won’t feel so guilty eating them.

    I love chickpeas. I make hummus out of it and use it as a spread. It tastes wonderful. Now that I know it’s good for me, I’m going to keep on eating it. Thanks for sharing,

      YUM! Try mixing chickpeas with a slice of avocado. It’s the best spread ever. You can also use it for pasta. Try it. 🙂
