Eliminate Eat-More Foods!

Fri, 12 Jan 2007 by Denise Austin

Want to cut your appetite? The secret is to reach for foods that satisfy, instead of ones that leave you hungry for more, experts say. In a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers found that some high-calorie foods, like bakery treats, not only don't leave you full but actually trigger your appetite! In fact, participants who were fed a meal of such foods ate twice as many calories over the rest of the day (3,000 in all) as those fed a low-fat, low-calorie meal! Now, that's calories out of control!

So reach for foods that fill you up and turn off your hunger switch, the experts say. For example, instead of a cheeseburger, have a sandwich made with whole-grain bread, a lean source of protein, lettuce, and tomato paired with an apple and a cup of tomato soup. Or eat oatmeal with fruit and milk rather than a doughnut and coffee. You'll feel fuller for longer, without skimping on the size, or taste, of your meal!
