17 May Tip 46- Eat Heavy Foods
By heavy, I don’t mean heavy with calories, but heavy by weight.
While the calories and fat in food will help fill you up, so will the weight of your food. Did you ever wonder why you can eat a whole bag of rice cakes and you never get full? There’s nothing in a rice cake that will fill you up. Your body needs calories, fat and “weight” to fill up your tummy.
You can eat less and still feel full if you choose heavy and healthy foods. Here are a few examples: oranges, grapefruits, apples, broccoli, cauliflower, cooked spinach, bok choy and cabbage.
Today’s tip: Lightly steam or grill broccoli and cauliflower. Put them in plastic bags and dip in hummus for a high energy and filling afternoon snack.
Also, drinking more water and hot tea can keep you feeling fuller, longer.
