Appetite Control Tips
Appetite Control is one of the hardest things about starting your diet. I’ve been there, I know. You eat a healthy breakfast and a few hours later you want to chug M&M’s through a bottle of Coca Cola.
I have three simple tips I give my clients to help control your appetite when you start dieting.
Appetite Control Tip: Water
Drink a minimum of 100 ounces a day to help control appetite. Once you feel that you are getting a little hungry, drink 8 ounces of water. Water is great for controlling appetite but it is also great at increasing your metabolism. Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism showed that drinking 17 ounces of water can increase fat burning by 30%. Being mildly dehydrated can slow your metabolism by 3%.
Appetite Control Tip: Healthy Eating
Yes, eating healthy will help you control your appetite. Foods like rich in fiber, protein, complex carbs, and healthy fats will “stick to you” longer than simple sugars. When you eat simple carbohydrates (think sugar, white bread, soda, etc.) your blood sugar spikes, then drops rapidly as insulin rushes in. This causes you to want more food! Protein, healthy fats, complex carbs, fiber, etc. keeps your blood sugar down and will keep you from getting hungry.
I also suggest to my clients to eat a minimum of 6-7 meals a day. Eating frequent small meals keep your metabolism in an anabolic state. This means that your body is promoting lean muscle and ridding itself of fat. These meals aren’t 4 course meals, they can be as little as a serving of almonds between breakfast and lunch.
Here is an example from my wife, who is a trainer:
Her 7 meals consist of healthy fats, high protein, and she keeps her carbs low during the day and higher at night around her workout.
Appetite Control Tip: Supplements
If the first two tips aren’t enough to keep your appetite at bay, I suggest looking at the Royal 21 Queen System, or Royal 21 King System. These two products help you burn fat 24/7, control appetite and cravings, manage your hormones, help optimize thyroid function, and even help you sleep! The Royal Queen System is for women, and the Royal King system is designed for men, and are in my opinion, the two best fat loss supplements in the world.
Following these three simple tips should help you shed weight fast and help you control your appetite when it is out of control. The first few weeks of dieting is the hardest, and eventually it will subside.
