I will present you some simple tricks to get rid of the tormenting hunger feeling.
Citric fruits, reliable alliesEat half a grapefruit before a meal or drink a juice from freshly squeezed oranges. Besides the fact that it hydrates you, it will also provide you the necessary of vitamin C in your organism, which will strengthen your immune system.
Give up carbohydratesTo control your hunger, give up carbohydrates. In fact, the exaggerated input of sugars, especially of refined ones allowed the quick elimination of insulin which favors their settling as triglycerides. Due to these refined sugars, the pancreas excretes more insulin to burn the consumed sugar. Thus, the excess insulin will eliminate and reduce the level of glucose in your blood thus causing the sensation of hunger. This shall manifest itself especially when it comes to sugars that are absorbed fast (jam, honey, candies, chocolate, pastry, fizzy drinks, etc.).
Eat food products rich in fibersThey not only get rid of the hunger sensation, but they are also low in calories and will help you lose. By increasing the amount of food fibers ingested, "foods" that are not assimilated by the organism, and thus the hunger sensation is reduced; by eating less, you lose weight.

Don't forget that people following a balanced diet, besides achieving their ideal weight, manage to get younger in a visible manner, by at least 10 years. Proteins can be found in meat, fish, eggs, cheese, milk and in certain vegetables (in low quantities). Besides the fact that they help us lose weight, proteins prevent bloating, allow the organism to go through a weight loss diet, don't transform into sugar, accelerate the healing process of wounds and help us fight against infections with antibodies they produce.
Fluids and fruitsDrink a lot of water, especially flat, or prepare a lemonade. Consuming 250 ml flat water before every meal, you will eat less. Fruits, especially apples and bananas, are very filling and have a low calorie content. Try to take your time eating an apple, you can even try vegetables, like carrots and small cucumbers. It is important to nibble slowly and to take small bites from your favorite fruit or vegetable.
