While we are all aware of what foods to eat to keep you full longer, knowing which foods make you hungrier is also a good strategy to keep your diet on track. Here are five foods that you can avoid the next time you eat out.
Sushi is commonly believed to be a healthy option, but did you know that eating a sushi roll is equivalent of eating three slices of white bread. If you are having just sushi for a meal, it gets digested by your body and is emptied from the stomach without a high level of satiating properties like fiber or protein.
Juices and smoothies are full of natural sugars but lack the necessary protein or fiber that keeps you full in between meals. Adding a scoop of protein powder to your smoothie is recommended to make it a satisfying snack.
This is not something new. White bread spikes your insulin levels and causes weight gain, but does not contain the grain’s fiber content, thus making you feel hungry while resulting in an increase in weight.
While it is common knowledge that alcohol is not your best friend when it comes to dieting, did you know that alcohol causes you to crave carbohydrates because it depletes the carbs storage in your body? This causes you to feel even hungrier than before and cause dehydration.
Do not be fooled by the word diet in diet soda, they are filled with artificial sweeteners, which triggers appetite but does not make you feel any fuller than before.
