Weight loss is not as easy as some of the infomercials make is sound but I think I know some ways to make it easier.
To be successful at lifelong weight management, we need to make food choices that help us feel full with fewer calories and make sure that you don’t feel hungry. Feeling full and satisfied while eating nutritious foods is a critical part of my eating plan.
Hunger is the most significant problem with weight loss and a diet that results in hunger will never be successful. It is hard not to eat when we get hungry. It goes against human nature. When we get hungry, we tend to want to eat more. The feeling of an empty stomach is very difficult, if not impossible, to tolerate and at some point we give in. My method is not going to work for you if you are hungry or tired all the time.
It is hard to force yourself to eat less. But it's possible to choose what you eat. Some foods keep us full and satisfied, while with others hunger returns soon after eating.
I consumed a low number of calories but got all the fullness and satisfaction. Eating foods high in nutrients and fiber and low in calories allowed me to become satiated without consuming excess calories. Eating large amount of the right food is my key to success. Fresh green vegetables and fresh low-sugar fruits work the best for me. Eating this way contributed to controlling my hunger and helped me lose weight, keep it off, and stay healthy. I lost 91 pounds.
