South Beach Diet
I worry that if the only thing I have going for me is grit and determination, that might not be enough to stay in the fight. This is a common question. Hunger is a battle for many people who are trying to lose weight or have lost weight and are trying to maintain their weight. Once you form and fill fat cells, the body has a well-designed system to maintain them, so hunger and weight regain are common.
Hunger is particularly complicated, as it relies on numerous systems throughout the body including the brain, stomach and gut. The science of satiety, or fullness, is a constantly growing field along with our waistlines, unfortunately.
There are a few things that have been proven to control hunger better and help you eat fewer calories without necessarily compromising the volume of food. Fullness begins with the act of chewing, so solid calories tend to be more filling than liquid calories. A study presented by a well-known researcher in this field, Dr.
Barbara Rolls, showed that an apple is more filling than apple sauce, which is more filling than apple juice. Because solid food requires chewing, thereby beginning the process of digestion and the release of digestive enzymes that begin to trigger fullness.
It simply slows down the process of caloric consumption because it takes longer to chew an apple than to guzzle a 6-ounce glass of apple juice.
In addition, an apple contains fiber, which has added benefits see below. So make sure the majority of your calories come from solid food, and limit sugary beverages and alcohol, which contain empty calories, and even juice, coffee drinks, shakes and smoothies if you don't find them as satisfying.
The one exception that you should include in your diet is noncream-based soups, which Rolls and others have shown can decrease calories significantly when consumed before a meal. While liquid calories in beverage form are less satisfying, eating water-rich foods like fruits, vegetables, and low-fat or fat-free dairy can help you eat fewer calories without cutting serving sizes. Try diluting calories in everything you eat by adding vegetables, fruit or fat-free dairy.
Examples including adding vegetables to pasta dishes and casseroles, topping frozen yogurt with fresh fruit, and making sauces or dressings with fat-free dairy instead of cream or oil.
Fiber, especially water-soluble fiber, may play an especially important role in feeling full, as it forms a gel with water in your stomach that slows the emptying of food from the stomach; slows the absorption of blood sugar, which also prevents the rapid drop that can lead to hunger; and allows the food to have more contact with the intestinal wall, which may help with the release of fullness hormones. Good sources of soluble fiber include oats, beans, barley, apples, strawberries, carrots, onions, sweet potatoes, grapes, oranges, peaches, pears, plums and prunes.
Insoluble fiber can also be useful, as it takes longer to chew and is bulky, so it causes physical distension of the stomach without providing significant calories. Good sources of insoluble fiber include whole grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds. Be wary of products with added fiber as it is unclear whether added fiber has any effect on fullness or blood sugar stability and it does not provide added bulk in most cases.
Finally, lean protein is an essential component of fullness and weight maintenance, as it triggers the release of fullness hormones and can help keep blood sugar stable, thereby controlling hunger. I encourage my patients to try to eat some form of lean protein with every meal and snack if they struggle with hunger. Congratulations on losing 35 pounds, and I hope some of my suggestions can help you keep the weight off for good!
I have lost pounds. What have I learned? That lean protein is essential to controlling hunger. I am never hungry or tired on my diet. I have half of my gm protein daily in the form of whey protein.
A shake in the morning, and a protein drink in the afternoon means I am never hungry. I eat lunch and dinner with a balanced protein and carb diet. That means never having carbs by themselves, because that is what stimulates hunger.
The same carbs, when eaten with protein, will not produce the blood sugar spike that having carbs by themselves does. The blood sugar spike from carbs by themselves is followed by a blood sugar crash, making you want to reach for more carbs by themselves. So most people who need to lose weight will need to learn to always have equal grams of protein with their carbs. Then you will never be hungry on your diet.
Carbs should always be with protein. The carbs help deliver the protein to the muscles and the protein helps slow down the absorption into the blood.
Very quickly after a hard workout, combine your protein with high-sugar fruits preferably as a shake. Avoid fiber and fat as these will slow down digestion and your bodies ability to replenish ravished glycogen levels and to shuttle the much-needed protein to the muscles.
One thing the blog failed to mention is water. How much water do you drink on a daily baisis? I've been working out and eating as healthy as possible and find myself feeling ravenous — I mean absolutely insatiable 3 to 4 days a week.
I always thought I was drinking enough water, but I added about 30 to 40 oz throughout the day and my ravenous day count dropped to 0 or 1 day per week. That is very true. I've noticed many times, when I feel "munchy" that I'm really thirsty. This has helped me keep off about 60 pounds I lost three years ago. You do have to learn your body's cues, too. So this means different strategies: I eat a piece of fruit or some veggies; munchy: I drink something and wait 15 minutes before I eat; emotional: I've recently started trying to shed my "winter 15" and have made it a habit to drink at least 3 glasses of water right before taking my first bite of a meal, and then grabbing another few glasses between meals whenever I get the urge to eat something.
Also, I found working through a meal I'm at a computer is enough of a distraction to reduce food intake slightly. If you do this don't forget to regularly clean your keyboard. Foods with high water content can help, too, such as low-sodium soup, or a small all-fruit smoothie. More volume, less calories.
MoodyMoody, the question as it was posed on the site was "How can I stop being hungry? And Derp answered it. I had this problem while on a diet to lose my pregnancy weight. I think it is because you're on a diet and you're constantly thinking about food and anyone who has been on a diet can probably agree with that.
After a month of that, I gave up on it. The thought occurred to me that maybe I didn't even realize when I was hungry or how much it really required to fill myself up since my eating was so screwed up from pregnancy. One day I decided to wait and trust my body to tell me when it was hungry, what it was actually hungry for not the chocolate fantasy my mind was plotting as an escape and then when I was hungry without any shadow of a doubt my stomach literally was growling , I ate slowly, chewing fully each bite — tasting everything.
You'd be amazed at what truly tastes good when eating this way. Fast food tastes pretty horrible when you're really focusing on each mouthful.
I found that my body really only wanted to eat times a day and only small, healthy meals. Actually less than when I was on a diet. There are several books out there that talk about eating mindfully and I highly suggest anyone fed up with dieting try this out. We are so completely out of touch with our bodies that we may not even know how much IS enough. Katie, thank you so much!!!! You are the first person I've noticed to say this.
I read a book called Health at Every Size that talks about that very subject, that your body has an almost perfect weight regulation system and that we just need to allow it to work. Once I started listening to my body cues and really really focusing on what I was eating, everything changed!
I've lost close to 50 lbs so far, I feel fantastic and I'm not hungry or jonesing for food at all. Now its not about looking good, but being healthy — thats the ultimate goal.
People should forget about weight loss and start cleaning the house and do more important things such as sending money to mission agencies who help poor countries with starving people. So people shouldn't take care of their bodies because there are poor people we can brainwash with religion ie Mission groups?
Liz, people are obsessed with the shape of bodies way too much. Christian missions are rescuing humanity at its neediest. Hearing their reports blows away our own sorrows, praying and helping in any way always do true good both to our mind and body.
We are having collective troubles because of the greed for ourselves anyway. Liz, I'm one of those who were fed and rescued by American Christian missions.
You must be another ignorant secular American who remembers nothing about the American missionaries' massive contribution in the world.
Melissa, Cleaning is a good exercise usually neglected and forgotten. Angie, Christian missionaries' agenda is the best and purest — salvation of another. Read some missionary biographies or go to needy countries with them. Why does charity have to come with the price tag of "soul salvation"? Why can't people give to those in need out of compassion and goodness of heart? Christian missionaries may do some good in the world; but not everyone in the world needs "salvation" and a Christian way of life.
Hungry people are hungry people; as humans, we should take care of each other without expecting religious conversion. Just curious, as you present an idiotology of no relevance to the discussion. I am 44 years old and have been on a diet since I am 13 years old. My mom is a dietician. I live and am healthy. I know everything there is to know about food and exercise. Here is my conclusion: Welcome in my world, Jeff! First, if you haven't done so already, the first thing you need to do is make sure you don't have a metabolic condition such as hypothyroidism.
Second, if you've done that already, then stop thinking of yourself as "being on a diet. Think of it as a way of life, your choice. Third, if you truly have a "fat gene," you may need to adjust your thinking about a desirable body weight. Your body may be happier at a heavier weight than most people of your height and bone structure. If you have an "extra" ten or even twenty pounds but your blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar are normal, you should probably just accept that.
Fourth, kudos to you for recognizing the importance of vitamin S! I always eat more if I don't get 7 or 8 hours a night. I agree about eating higher quality food. It seems like eating processed food is the same concept as drinking apple juice vs eating an apple. I feel hungry again far too fast when I eat processed foods as opposed to when I eat high quality foods. It's too bad that fast food is so over processed and much easier to get than whole quality foods.
My new years resolution this year has been to bring my lunch because I have more control over of the quality of the food I eat that way. It seems to be helping me lose weight without feeling overly hungry.
Record everything you eat or drink everyday and get horrified at the amount you are eating. I Drink on average 64 oz of water while at my desk. I love bananas and strawberries. I've tried every diet and I've lost over 30 pounds twice. I was always fighting hunger whether I exercised or not. I did lose weight. But the last holdout was Nutrisystem. I finally tried it. I'm only on it a month so this is not scientific. But I always feel full. In fact I sometimes have to force myself to eat the full list.
My wife thinks I must be doing something wrong. But I'm following the darn plan every step of the way. I've lost about 10 pounds and a belt cinch. Before you flame me I am not working for the company. I am just a guy who sits at a desk all day working on design. The problem I had is that I continually ordered a vegetarian diet and they would still send me a basic assortment package each month.
I have continued to lose weight and as of today have dropped 86lbs. I do this mostly by consuming huge amounts of water and eating primarily fruits and vegetables. Best of luck to all who struggle with this issue. Doug- I too have tried Nutrisystem. In fact, I just started my second round of it. I lost all 30lbs of my pregnancy weight plus ten lbs the first time I did it for two months with plenty of exercise.
Now that I am done nursing my second baby, I am giving it another shot based on my success last time. The food isn't gourmet, but it is pretty good for what it is.
I think what it teaches us is portion control Americans are notoriously bad at this , and to fill up on fruits and veggies. I like being accountable to my little list everyday and I know I am going to be around for a long time to see my kids grow up because I am taking steps to take better care of myself.
I guess the major question is: I would give every piece of chocolate I have ever eaten back if it means I get to spend just one more day with my family! He will explain why vigorous exercise coupled with calorie reduction is a recipe for weight loss failure — you're always hungry!!! It's darn near impossible to maintain a semi-starvation diet long-term. Add high quality fats to your diet not trans fat ; don't worry about how much and cut out sugar and drastically cut your carbs.
Have been doing this for over a year and lost 30 lbs. I agree, Eat healthy fats and protien, cut carbs way down and you will not be hungry in a calorie deficit. Keto , look it up.. I quit eating sugar, flour and most fruits Lost my constant hunger and 10 pounds in one month. For all you yo-yo dieters out there try watchting FatHead the movie. This expert is so full of it. Eating an apple is like eating grass most of the time.
Do you get less hungry when you eat that? Apparently he's not real up on how a lot of fat people's problems are. Most of them don't get satiation from straight carbs. It has to be fat and carbs, or protein or a mixture.
And you are still hungry even if you eat a lot of bulk. People don't respond the same way to food, so you can't give advice to other people for what works for you. Big problem with diet advice. Did you read the whole article? The last couple of paragraphs talk about the importance of lean protein. She's generally advocating a Volumetrics approach to the problem. I agree that Dr. Jampolis could have put some more concrete suggestions for healthy, satisfying snacks in her article.
In the last 10 years the incredible significance of a hormone called leptin has gradually been realized but not fully embraced by the medical community and outright challenged by bug-pharma and processed food industries. Leptin resistance correlates with the diet based causes of chronic inflammation and a grass protein called lectin found in all grain-seed based foods, especially processed foods. I strongly suggest anyone really determined to get healthy and lose weight, research leptin resistance and inflammation.
Simply reducing specific unhealthy food sources, adding specific healthy foods and the timing of eating and excercise can have dramatic, permanent improvement effects on your weight and health. This is life changing information. WRONG — Simply increasing calorie expenditure and decreasing calorie intake will only work for a few days or weeks — if you're under 30 it might work for a few months or more.
But eventually, your brain will interpret the sustained low blood sugar level as imminent starvation and immediately lower your metabolism and immune function and shuttle all available calories glycogen and fatty acids to your fat cells. In order to make your metabolic system work correctly to lose weight AND be healthy you need to exercise and eat the right foods at the right times, but most importantly you need to eliminate the foods that over time will screw up your hormone signaling and receptor system.
That means no processed carbs, no hydrogenated fats, no fructose corn syrup, etc. If you stick to stuff a caveman would eat foods we evolved to eat — the Paleo diet — lean protein, fruits, vegetables, nuts then you might actually have a chance to permanently lose weight. I've lost over 60 pounds in the past six months. I have more energy than I did before, and I'm steadily losing weight. If you take in fewer calories than you expend, you'll lose weight; if you take in more, you'll gain weight.
I lost 80lbs and kept it off till I got preggo and was never miserable, in part, because I felt better and that made it easier. I recently popped out two kids and have maybe 15 lbs to lose, and honestly, to support what you said, I am following a slightly modified paleo diet I eat some cheese, love my cheese Diet rich in protein.
Skipping on protein makes you feel hungry soon after you ate. Some fish, or low-fat cheese, or tofu. I add some tofu to salad, it makes you feel you had a full meal. Make your salads with "things". Cut up meat like chicken, ham or beef roast on the salad.
Chopped eggs, veggies, and strawberries really make salads pop. Make your OWN salad dressing, use sour cream and blue cheese or other low carb ingredients. Top with finely chopped nuts. Eat until you are full and then go DO something else I've lost weight ON my bi-polar meds. They help keep my energy level up and consistent, so a crave fewer sugary foods. I started by swearing off restaurants, too much food, too many carbs and hidden carbs.
I put everything I was going to eat that day on a single plate pretty well same stuff each day and each day I took stuff off until I started losing weight.
I was amazed at how little I need to eat to even maintain my weight much less lose. It is both the size of the portion and cutting out all carbs except berries and non starchy veggies and had to cut back on amount of proteins too. I also prerecord anything I am watching on TV and zap thru the commercials so I dont have to see "food".
I am really amazed too how a single bite of something I dont eat like "carby" can be enough and not make me want the whole thing. Somebody once said "the first bite lingers just as long in the mouth as the last bite". My DH is good, we cleaned all the carbs out of the house and he hides any that he does bring in. Consider the associated with the ads.
