Why am I Always Hungry?

If you are reaching for a snack mere moments from leaving the dinner table, it is time to look at why you are always hungry. Of course, there are times when it is normal to be hungry, but there are some factors that cause excessive feelings of hunger. Knowing what triggers your hunger pains will help you decide how to lose weight.

You Lack Liquids

Maybe you are grumpy, easily irritated or weak. While they are all symptoms of hunger, they can also be symptoms of dehydration. Not consuming enough liquids, including not only water, but other beverages such as green tea, can make you feel hungry. Before grabbing a snack, drink a glass of slimming tea, to feel full without the additional calories.

You Lack Sleep

Not allowing your body to rest means it is working extra hard to stay awake and remain functional. High quality sleep helps regulate your hormones, including leptin, which helps you feel full. A lack of sleep will ramp up hunger, push fitness goals to the back burner and can stifle weight loss. The recommended eight hours of sleep for adults may be hard to come by, but creating a nighttime routine, including a night cleanse, will help curb your hunger.

Your Diet is Poor

A poor diet, high in simple carbohydrates and low in good fats and proteins, will keep your hunger unsatisfied. Reach for complex carbohydrates, seed and nuts for snacks and leave the empty calories found in most snack foods behind. Try a tablespoon of almond butter with apple slices for a slimming combination that will keep you feeling full longer.

Why am I Always Hungry? You are Skipping Meals

Yes, skipping meals left you hungry at that time, but studies have shown people who skip meals, even in an effort to lose weight fast, eat more calories than the average person throughout the day. Sticking to at least three balanced meals a day will keep your diet in check.

You are Stressed

Stress leads many of us to eat, whether we feel hungry or not. Stress affects our hormones, which may make us feel hungry long before we should. Even physical stress caused by an injury or an overload of environmental toxins can cause us to feel hungry. A detox program may help relieve stress and lessen your hunger pangs.

You Have a Medical Condition

There are several diagnosable conditions that may cause you to feel hungry all of the time. Having an overactive thyroid is one condition that requires medical attention to determine its direct cause. Diabetes will also increase your hunger levels, so it is important to check with your physician if your hunger levels suddenly increase. Be aware that some medications also increase your appetite.

Which Type of Dieter Are You? Four Obstacles to Weight Loss

If you are like most people, you may want to lose weight for better health, fitness or appearance. However, many dieters try different diets without success. Understanding the motivation behind your eating habits and the physiology of dieting can help you lose weight and develop new habits that enhance health and nutrition.

Type One: Emotional Eater

Do you eat in response to stress? Turning to food for comfort often results in eating high-calorie foods. Loneliness, fatigue and financial pressure are just a few triggers that can undermine a diet. Afterward, you feel bad that you binged, feel a sense of self-defeat and continue the cycle of using food for solace.

Type Two: Fad Dieter

Do you jump from one diet to another to lose weight fast? Fad diets often eliminate important food groups. Some people try deatox diets to stimulate weight loss. Although a deatox program can be part of a successful diet, it must be supported with adequate nutrition. Fad diets can be rewarding at first but difficult to maintain. Eventually, you go back to your old habits and don’t lose weight.

Type Three: Rationalizer

Are you a rationalizer? “If I eat a high-calorie dessert now, I’ll skip supper tonight.” “I’m just a bit overweight. One more piece of pizza won’t hurt.” “I’ll eat a snack now so I don’t get hungry later.” With these rationalizations, you undermine your confidence. The result is weight gain.

Type Four: Perfectionist

Are you super-organized? You observe all the weight loss tips like planning your meals, counting calories and exercising. Sticking to a well-planned diet usually results in weight loss for a while. Then you may hit a plateau, stop losing weight, get discouraged and abandon your diet.

Successful Weight Loss

Dieting isn’t about denying yourself food. It is about changing habits, enhancing metabolic dynamics that cause weight loss and learning how to lose weight safely. Leptin is an important hormone that regulates energy by signaling the brain that adequate energy is stored in fat cells. When you diet, leptin levels fall. The brain perceives this as starvation and signals the body to eat to raise leptin levels. When the metabolic system works properly, adequate leptin levels tell the brain that you are full and you stop eating.

Obese people may have decreased sensitivity to leptin, called leptin resistance. Although leptin is present, the body doesn’t sense it and tells the brain that you are hungry. Leptin Teatox, a popular diet tea, uses a combination of natural ingredients like green tea and lemon grass to suppress the appetite, boost metabolism and aid digestion. Augmenting your diet with slimming teas may help you lose weight.**

Morning Boost detox tea can be used daily. Night Cleanse detox cleansing tea includes a mild laxative to rid the body of toxins. The two are sold together as an effective slimming combination. These fitness teas can be used in many ways. A slimming Teatox smoothie satisfies hunger while providing nutrients.

When you stress you produce a hormone called cortisol. Elevated levels of cortisol tricks your body into thinking that you’ve expelled energy which makes you HUNGRY!

Not getting enough sleep not only promotes more eating, but also causes higher stress levels.

Lift weights –

Lifting weights builds muscle quicker than cardio. The more muscle tissue there is in your body, the faster your metabolism works and the easier it is to make more muscle.

Cook at home, with lots of colors –

Stay away from take out as those usually come in larger quantities, with more grease (or carbs), and with sides that you would not normally eat. Cook, cook, cook to know what is in your meals and use the rainbow as a guide. Carrots, bell peppers, avocados, chicken, and chickpeas are all different colors that would make up a wonderful meal.

No liquid calories –

Frappuccinos, sodas, and shakes, oh my! Most liquids do not fill you up (I do allow protein shakes every once in a while) and therefore are just a pre meal snack, as they can hold 400-800 calories on top of whatever you’re eating next. Fill up on solid foods, focusing on your lean protein and veggies first!

Sit down to eat and eat often-

Boost your metabolism by eating 3-5 times a day. Make sure to take time to eat (not over homework or office work), pay attention to your food, and enjoy it!
