Lean people know this trick well; they never allow their hunger to get out of control. When your hunger is overwhelming, you will eat about 30% more calories than your body requires. Often, you will end up craving and eating foods you don’t normally eat. Not only are you overeating, but you’re also eating whatever you have in front you, just to satisfy your hunger.
The solution? Plan ahead and pack a snack with some protein. If you just eat carbs (ex: fruit) you will be hungry again in no time.
Today’s tip: Shop and prep the following snacks for the week to come.
- Nuts. All you need is an ounce, which is one serving. You can use a shot glass for easy measuring.
- Hardboiled eggs. Keep some in the frig at work.
- String cheese. Combine this with an apple for a high energy afternoon snack.
