Foods That Help Curb Hunger And Cravings.


While experts suggest the best way to keep healthy and fit and keep your body nutritionally balanced is by eating several small meals per day. But, of course what you choose plays a large part in how you look and how you feel. And, while many of us “should” be noshing every few hours, how often we crave and what we crave may depend on what we’re indulging in. In fact, experts assert that when it comes to curbing hunger and cravings, the key lies not in NOT eating, but in selecting foods that fill you up but that don’t add fat or calories to your diet or your waistline.

1. “Liquid Lunches”: Broths and filtered fresh drinking water help keep appetite at bay. In fact, according to experts thirst is often mistaken for hunger. They suggest drinking an 8-ounce glass of water at the first sign of hunger and waiting a few minutes, before making the decision to eat. If you’re not partial to water, they suggest organic vegetable or chicken broth and heat it up at a quart at a time.

2. Field Of Greens: Dark leafy greens and vegetables have lots of nutrients but very few calories, and can fill you up quickly and easily. And if you prefer them with a little seasoning; consider low-calorie salad dressings or stir-fry veggies in water. For more flavor you may even want to add a few onions, a little garlic, and some soy sauce, just may sure it’s the low sodium kind.

5 Ways to Manage your Diet for Diabetes

Since my diagnosis with diabetes at the age of eleven, my own diet has changed dramatically. I maintain my current healthy weight with a great diet/eating plan. If you do plan on losing more than about a stone in weight then I would visit your doctor for more tips on how to do this without risk.

I’ve had diabetes for seven years now, but to tell you that how I maintain weight is perfect would be totally wrong of me. However, I can advise you to follow my steps because I know what works and what doesn’t. Before I really begin I must also say that I have been brought up by great parents who taught me to eat everything, and so I do! If there is something that you don’t like, there are loads of other diabetic recipes and ideas that you will eat and appreciate.

I am a university student and I like to buy fresh and organic produce from where I live. I believe that this is important because it can be the most good for your body and contain more nutrients and vitamins than most supermarket produce. I like to source food from my fortnightly farmers market in town, which sells amazing meat and dairy produce and fresh in season fruit and vegetables. This is another important thing to remember, that eating fruit and vegetables in their season means that they will taste better as well as doing you good. I have a lot of influence from Western European cuisine (mainly France and Italy) as you will tell, but I do not profess to be a chef and everything is easy to make and very convenient.

I have read countless diet books and diabetic recipe/diet books, and I came to a conclusion that I think really works. I fused all the good things from the diets (but not from every diet) and sort of put together my own one. I call this my Juvenile Diabetes Healthy Diet!
