Steps to Better Satiety: How to Stay Full on 500 Calories
The HCG 500 Calorie Diet is very specific and tailored to suit your needs. Howeer if you’re coming from very high calorie diets, there can be an adjustment period wherein you may feel a bit tired. To help curb the cravings and hunger while detoxing, here are some ways to stay satiated.
1. Drink 1-2 glasses of water before meals.
Water is a great way to trick yourself into feeling full without racking up the calories. Gulp down a couple of glasses of water and let it sit in your stomach for a couple of minutes before attacking the food. This way, you feel a little less starved and you have less space in your stomach for food, which will help you control your portions until you can start doing it intuitively.
2. Eat as much leafy greens as you’d like.
Leafy greens are also low-calorie but filling, and are packed full of dietary fiber. Not only will this move things along, but it will help keep you full longer. This is so important when transitioning from a free-for-all diet to a more controlled one.
3. Never allow yourself to be hungry during mealtimes.
The reason why 5-6 meals a day are optimal is because it keeps you from getting too hungry. When you get hungry you are more susceptible to tempting sweets and unhealthy food. Your cravings come out full force, and it becomes infinitely harder to say no to the naughtier food choices. By keeping yourself full, you stay on track more easily.
These are 3 things you can do anywhere to help keep you on track with your goals. It’s not the easiest thing to do going from junk food to eating clean, but it is possible with the right tools and mindset. Contact us for a consultation so that we can get you started ASAP!
