Are you snacking more than usual right now?
Snacking can be dangerous as it’s a habit that becomes addictive.
Before you know you start to snack more and more on the wrong foods…
You stop eating proper meals…
Your clothes start getting tighter and less comfortable…
Your energy levels drop….
You feel Bloated and Blahhhh
So today I want to share the 3 tips to stop snacking
1 ) Get Back to 5 Meals per Day
It’s as simple as Breakfast, Morning Tea, Lunch, Dinner and afternoon tea.
This will stabilise blood sugar levels and reduce craving for junkfood.
5 balanced meals per day will also help with energy levels and stop you from feeling hungry all the time.
2) Drink more Water
When your body is dehydrated the brain send us signals…
To often we misinterpret these signals for hunger and cravings and reach for more food / snacks rather than to drink water and hydrate.
As soon as you get up in the morning have a big glass of water to kickstart your hydration..
Aim for approx. 2.5 litres of water per day.
TIP: If you are struggling to drink plain water
Add a little juice to your water bottle
It can be some orange juice or apple juice or passionfruit juice or a combination ..
(just make sure its 100% natural and no added sugar or preservatives)
This will give it a whole new flavour and appeal
2) Have Protein with every meal
Protein helps you feel more full — with less food…
- Protein makes you feel fuller
