Feel-Full Quick-Tricks

by goldsgym

H20 some more

Drink two 8-ounce glasses (16 ounces total) of water before each meal. It will fill up your stomach and trim up to 60 calories per meal.

Flavor of the day

Use vinegar/vinaigrette and cinnamon for flavor (where possible). These two ingredients can help regulate blood sugars after meals, and help you feel full longer after eating, according to a study from the Department of Agricultural and Food Sciences in Zurich, Switzerland.

Snack on Veggies

These bites help you feel full fast without putting a huge dent in your daily calorie count. Green and orange vegetables contain about 90% water, which fills your stomach and makes your brain register fullness.

Go a Little Nutty

The complex trio of fiber, protein, and fat in nuts activates satiety so you chow down on fewer calories throughout the day. (Plus, they may increase metabolism up to 11%!).

Add some oats

Oats have a filling fiber compound called beta-glucan that helps the body release CCK, a hunger-suppressing hormone.

Variety of beans

Beans contain a fiber-protein balance to increase fullness. As an added bonus, a diet rich in legumes may also up your metabolism, according to a Spanish study.

Egg-cellent

Eggs are protein-packed, so it’s no wonder a study in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition found eating them helps control appetite for up to 36 hours.
