Healthier Ways to Satisfy Your Hunger

Aug 10, 2008
There is nothing more aggravating than feeling those hunger crumbles well before it's time for lunch or dinner. It can be a bit embarrassing if you work in a small office and it's quite. It happens to everybody so it's no big deal.

What do you usually reach for when your stomach starts to growl? More than likely it's one of the quick choices that everyone makes - you grab for the bag of chips, the candy bar or even those jelly filled donuts. These items will fill your stomach but they'll also fill your thighs, abdomen and stomach with fat!

Rest assured, these aren't the only foods that can satisfy your hunger. There are healthier choices out there that will fill up your stomach but not make you gain a few extra pounds. Here are some options you can try reaching for instead:

1)There is nothing worse than your 104 pound co-worker who stops at the bakery on her way to work and brings in two dozen fresh donuts. It's cruel and should be company policy that if somebody is dieting, it is against the rules to do such a thing. Never fear; dried fruits are there to save the day. Trust me; I'm a huge fan of dried fruits; they've never let me down yet.

2.) Candy bars are nice ways to take a bite out of your hunger, but it's full of calories. If you're on a limited caloric intake each day, a candy bar will eat up most of those allotted calories, leaving you with little left for the rest of the day. Instead of biting a candy bar, how about trying some of those low-fat, low-calorie granola bars? You'll satisfy your hunger, stick to your diet and give your body some needed nutrients as well.

3)You might want to try eating rice cakes instead of chips or candy. It's sweet, healthy .They are a great snack to ward off the signs of a stomach under attack.

4.) What about those jelly-filled donuts or other popular pastries? They're good for taste (and a quick sugar high) but not good for your waistline. Maybe you can consider some sugar free Fig Newton's instead. They don't have as much fat as the pastries and they can satisfy your fruit craving that you may be suffering from when you reach for the jelly-filled donuts.

Remember, you are in control of your own body and what you put into it. You have to make the right choices of food if you want to lose those extra pounds. Snacking is fine as long as the snack you pick is not going to stretch your designated calorie intake for the day to the point that you will have to sacrifice at your meal time.
