Do you find that you are always hungry? Is the hunger insatiable? This can be very frustrating especially when you're trying to watch your weight or slim down. If you eat a meal, you want to feel full and satisfied and not hungry within an hour. It's important to note that if you are trying to slim down and the leaner you get, you will experience some hunger. That dieting hunger is inevitable because it's a survival mechanism. You are not dying of course, but your body is trying to preserve its body fat in case of a true famine. On the flip side, if you simply struggle with what feels like excessive hunger here are my top 5 tips for taming hunger:

Tip 1: Track Your Calories Often times people think they are consuming enough calories for their body but we've learned that most people are terrible at estimating calories. This tip is about using an app to track your calories so you understand exactly how much you are consuming. You won't have to track your calories forever but it will start to give you a clearer picture until you figure this out. For weight maintenance you will want to eat in calories, your body weight multiplied by 14-16. This is a starting point, it's important to monitor your weight and hunger levels. If you begin to lose weight eating those calories then increase them. Foods that are higher in calories are nuts and seeds so grabbing a small handful of those and eating them slowly can provide a boost. The fat in the nuts and seeds will also help with satiety.

WHY WEIGHT LOSS IS ALL ABOUT YOUR MINDSET

Weight loss is unlike any other endeavor. The things that people have to go through to lose weight are more drastic than what they would have to go through to change other features of their physical appearance. Many of the other dietary conditions are easy to fix and simply require one or two changes, like a low sodium diet, or cutting out gassy foods.

Changing your diet to lose weight takes a significant mental element also. Tons of plans, groups, shakes, supplements, and ideas surround weight loss. It can be overwhelming. When treating a dietary condition like GERD cutting out acidic foods and taking an antacid will produce immediate results. When you reduce your caloric intake, you don't get those same immediate results.

People gained weight over a long period of time. If their weight is extremely high, it has taken them decades to get to their weight. For some reason, people get a mindset that their weight loss will be instant. Web M.D. tells that healthy weight loss is about 1-2lbs a week and not the 20-30lbs. That many people have come to expect.

Realizing that you will lose 1-2 lbs. a week from the beginning will stop you from getting frustrated and giving up. Setting the right expectation when you go into your new diet and exercise program will help ensure that you retain your motivation as time goes on.
