Healthier Ways to Satisfy Your Hunger
One of the most annoying (and embarrassing) things we endure in life is a loud grumbling stomach in a nice, quiet environment. Everyone knows it’s you, so it doesn’t do any good to try to hide it. Your stomach is going to mumble and grumble no matter where you are or what you’re doing if it’s hungry.
What do you usually reach for when your stomach starts to growl? More than likely it’s one of the quick choices that everyone makes - you grab for the bag of chips, the candy bar or even those jelly filled donuts. These items will fill your stomach but they’ll also fill your thighs, abdomen and stomach with fat!
Rest assured, these aren’t the only foods that can satisfy your hunger. There are healthier choices out there that will fill up your stomach but not make you gain a few extra pounds. Here are some options you can try reaching for instead:
1.) Instead of the bag of potato chips, how about trying a bag of dried fruit? Fruit is good for you. Dried fruit is something that you can take with you in your car and keep in your purse and it won’t spoil right away.
2.) Candy bars are nice ways to take a bite out of your hunger, but it’s full of calories. If you’re on a limited caloric intake each day, a candy bar will eat up most of those allotted calories, leaving you with little left for the rest of the day. Instead of biting a candy bar, how about trying some of those low-fat, low-calorie granola bars? You’ll satisfy your hunger, stick to your diet and give your body some needed nutrients as well.
3.) Almost everyone likes a good chocolate chip cookie (or 2 or 3 or possibly more) when they’re hungry. Again, they taste good, but they can pack on the calories. Instead of those tasty cookies, how about going for rice cakes or low-fat, sugar-free cookies to squash your hunger?
4.) What about those jelly-filled donuts or other popular pastries? They’re good for taste (and a quick sugar high) but not good for your waistline. Maybe you can consider some sugar free Fig Newton’s instead. They don’t have as much fat as the pastries and they can satisfy your fruit craving that you may be suffering from when you reach for the jelly-filled donuts.
There are many more options out there to reach for the next time your stomach is grumbling and causing all eyes to be on you. Take healthy snacks along with you so that you can stay satisfied at any time of day.
