TIP OF THE DAY
How to Know You're Hungry (and Avoid Eating when You're Not)
Watch the clock. When was the last time you had something to eat? Hunger cycles peak about every 90 minutes.
If you plan to eat every time your hunger prickles you, confine yourself to very small portions.
Try to pass through the next cycle and eat every three or four hours.
Are you really hungry or just bored? At times, for lack of anything better to do, some people snack.
Try to refrain from this
Learn to occupy your time.
Distract yourself from thinking about food.
Chew gum. Sometimes you just need to have something in your mouth.
Are you really hungry or just tired? Being tired can create a sensation in or around your midsection, which can be mistaken for hunger. I
If it's late, go to bed.
Definitely, avoid eating heavily before going to sleep for a variety of reasons:
It can aggravate gastro-esophageal reflux disease and leave you with burning indigestion - very unpleasant.
It can make your sleep too warm, which disturbs the quality of your rest.
If you're really hungry before bed, consider a small bowl of cereal and milk.
Try two small cookies (Oreo size) and a 6-oz. glass of 1% milk.
Milk contains tryptophan, which can aid with sleep.
A couple of cookies or a little cereal will not create a calorie nightmare.
Determine how much you have exercised. Exercising will have the immediate effect of depressing your appetite, but after about an hour, you will feel that you have "worked up" an appetite.
Consider taking a walk or going for a bicycle ride if you're feeling hungry and it's way too soon to eat.
Exercise may help to suppress your appetite until a more appropriate time.
Analyze your body's signals. You may have real hunger and need a snack if:
You feel a gnawing in the pit of your stomach.
You feel a little nauseous.
Your stomach is making noises straight out of Star Wars.
tave off hunger until mealtime. Even if it isn't meal time, it's better for your body if you don't allow it to feel starved.
Have a hard-cooked egg.
Try a glass of reduced fat milk.
Try a slice of cheese and some fruit.
Eat a protein along with a carb. This will regulate your blood sugar and keep you on track.
Eat an apple with a little cheese.
Eat some crackers with a little smoked salmon.
Try a cookie and a glass of low fat milk.
Overeating may occur if:
You starve yourself for another hour and a half.
You wait too long between meals
