How to Stop Non-stop Hunger
6 tips on curbing your cravings

Did you ever have one of those days where no matter how much you eat you still feel hungry? I had one of those last week. This is called rebound hunger and it can make you fat. Here are few tips on combating those cravings and help you avoid a garbage gut.

Cut back on the Coke. Sweetened soft drinks often contain high fructose corn syrup. In fact two thirds of our HFCS consumption comes from this. Studies have shown that HFCS, which in fact is mostly glucose and can contain less hat 20% fructose, can trick our brains into feeling hungry by blocking our body's ability to use leptin, the hormone that makes us feel full. So cut out the sugary soft drinks.

Say Oh No! to the Spaghetti O's. Aside from being loaded with carbs and sodium, most food out of a can contains BPA which can cause spikes in leptin with a resulting sudden fall making us feel more hungry that when we started. If it is in a can take a pass on it. Do your shopping on the outside isles of the store where the fresh meat and produce are located.

Beef up on your Breakfast. Your most important meal of the day is breakfast. A recent study revealed that people who at 300 calories or under for breakfast gained twice as much weight as those how ate 500 calories or more. Eating a small breakfast triggers ups and downs in blood sugar levels creating food craving. So, chow down and make it high protein.

Savor your Salad. Leafy greens should make up the majority of your meals… fact! These leafy greens are loaded with fiber, minerals and vitamins that protect us against fatigue, weight gain and even depression. They are also high in vitamin K which has been shown to help regulate insulin thus putting the kibosh on cravings. Load up on the greens but, don't smother them in dressing.

Take Time for Tea. I recent study by the Journal of the American College of Nutrition it was conclusive that folks who drank a cup of black tea after their meals decreased their blood sugar levels up to ten percent which results in us staying fuller longer. So, crank up that kettle and brew up some tea.

H2O Oh Yeah! Seventy-five percent of the time people confusion dehydration with hunger. If you feel hungry down a glass of water, wait a few minutes and see if you still have those hunger pangs. If so, eat and since you drank that glass of water you will eat less and feel fuller quicker. So, drink up.

Above all listen carefully to your body, it will tell you if you are really hungry. Something as simple as taking a walk around the block can take your mind off your belly and stave off the hungry feeling.

Have an excellent day.

This is a super easy recipe anybody can make. These came out so well I am willing to go head to head with my grandma's gingersnaps.

3/4 cup almond flour/meal
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ginger
1/8 teaspoon cloves
Pinch nutmeg
Pinch allspice

1/8 teaspoon vanilla


In a small bowl, blend the spices and salt with the almond flour.

Stir in the remaining ingredients until well blended and a sticky dough forms.

Drop the dough by teaspoons in 24 tiny lumps on parchment-lined or well-greased baking sheet.

Gently pick up each piece of dough and roll into a ball; put back on the baking sheet making sure to space them evenly 6 across and 4 down.

Cover the balls with plastic wrap and with a drinking glass bottom press down firmly over each ball of dough. Be sure to press all the way down to the baking sheet.

Peel off the plastic wrap and repeat until all the cookies have been shaped.

Bake at 325º for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

Remove from the pan, cool on a rack and enjoy.
