Desperate to Lose Weight Quickly? Tips for Reaching Your Ideal Weight Just by Snacking
You love to snack between meals, and while this was okay when you were younger, it gets more difficult as you get older. Your metabolism changes when you age. You gain weight more easily and have trouble keeping your cholesterol count at a manageable level. Snacking when you are trying to maintain your weight is like buying a high-end car on a budget: impossible. When you’ve been asked by your doctor to cut back, they’re usually the first to go.
Now, snackers can revel in this piece of good news: swearing off snacks between meals can actually have an adverse effect on your waistline. Some studies reveal that people who avoid eating between meals may end up consuming more calories overall. When you’re famished, your blood sugar is low and your defenses are down, so you aren’t exactly equipped to make the best choices. It’s actually now time to embrace your need to nibble.
To enjoy eating without adding some bulk to your body and feeling guilty about it, fill your cupboard with goodies that are built to strengthen your willpower. What probably helps most are foods pumped with air so that your stomach feels inflated without giving you a belly that puts Santa Claus to shame. Those scarfing on puffier snacks such as rice chips and puffed chips consumed more volume. The thing is, they also took in fewer calories. When something is full of air, an equal amount looks bigger, so people tend to munch on fewer calories. You actually eat more without your gut suffering the consequences.
As far as your mind is concerned, all calories are created equal. But, your brain does play favorites. Liquids don’t seem to trigger the same response in metabolism and hunger suppression that solids do. You’re consuming calories, but it somehow doesn’t seem to register. So, you still feel hungry and will end up eating more in the end. A great solution would be to get thicker liquids such as smoothies. These are still recognized as food in your brain’s appetite center. This helps you get that couldn’t-get-another-bite sensation in your stomach.
For those who love spice, there’s another piece of good news for you as well. Just make sure that you don’t suffer from hyperacidity or else you will end up inflicting pain upon yourself. Spices have a good track record as a weight-loss tool. You just end up consuming fewer calories when you add some pepper in your meals. Not only does the hot sensation slow you down, peppers cause thermogenesis. This means that your body literally heats up, burning a few extra calories in the long run. Moreover, the compounds found in red pepper prove lethal to fat cells, killing them before they get the chance to full form inside your body. Common sense also tells you that you simply cannot eat spicy cuisine as quickly.
Enjoy snacking and know that this certain passion of yours does not necessarily have to make you fat. In fact, this may be your way to get healthy and lose those fats that get more difficult to get rid off as the years progress.
