Does that 3 p.m. itch hit and cause you to immediately go on the hunt for chocolate or salty chips? Next time try these easy ways to stay full throughout the day and avoid unnecessary snacking.
Drink Your H20
Instead of reaching for a snack out of boredom, drink some water. It’s good for you and can make you feel full until your craving subsides.
Eat More Often
Instead of eating 3 big meals per day, opt instead for 5 small meals. Eating larger meals with long periods in between can cause your blood sugar to spike and crash (and therefore lead to binging on afternoon cravings). Eating a small meal every 2-3 hours will help to keep your blood sugar more stable.
Opt for Whole Grains
Avoid eating sugary foods that can cause your blood sugar to crash. Opting instead for whole grain carbohydrates will help to regulate your blood sugar over a longer period of time.
If diet is half of the equation, exercise is the other half. When you’re ready to get serious about fitness, try a ‘do anywhere’ circuit workout from theworkoutgirl.com.
