3 Ways to Decrease Your Appetite to Increase Weight Loss

When starting a diet most people find the hardest part of the diet is limiting their food. You go from eating whatever you want to only eating a few times a day, consisting of very limited foods. After a couple days of dieting, you tend to fall off the wagon and start gorging on foods you should not be eating.

This happens because instead of controlling your appetite and practicing healthy eating habits, you just start a diet and wing it from day to day. Here are a couple of tips to help you control your appetite, which in turn will help you control your weight!

1. Try eating smaller meals, instead of large meals. If you break your meals into 4 or 5 smaller meals throughout the day, you supply your body with a constant flow of nutrients. This constant flow of nutrients keeps you from feeling starving, because every couple of hours you are eating something. This will keep you from eating a lot at one time, which will decrease your appetite.

2. Increase your fiber intake. Dietary fiber helps give your body a feeling of fullness. Eating such foods as apples, peaches, oranges, grapes, and green vegetables will increase your fiber and add valuable other nutrients to your diet.

3. Don't starve yourself. Most people think of a diet as having to starve themselves to lose weight. This is untrue and will actually lead you to gain more weight. By starving yourself, you are actually setting yourself up to eat more. You will tend to snack more or gorge at your next meal. This tip ties in with tip 1, eating smaller meals throughout the day will help you from starving yourself!

These small tips will help you succeed at your diet and help you also to live a healthier lifestyle. Try implementing one tip at a time to make small changes to your eating habits. As you become comfortable with one tip, move on to the next. Lots of small changes will add up to One big change and help you be more successful at weight loss!
