And welcome to joining me on this class of how to beat my hunger pangs. Or why am I always hungry In this short class, I'm going to share with you some lifestyle tips off what you can do to feel fuller for longer before we go into the class itself. I do want to point out that this class does not provide any kind off medical advice. The information I provide in this class is purely for informational purposes only. The purpose off this class is to help you to understand various health topics a little bit in war and give you a little bit more knowledge about those health topics. This class is in no way intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. You are advice to always seek the advice off your physician or qualified health care provider with any questions you may have regarding your own health, medical condition or treatment. So I'm not a doctor. I'm not a health care professional. I just want to share with you some basic knowledge on how you can beat your hunger pains. The first thing that I would like to talk about very briefly as this close is a very short class. But the first thing that I want to share with you is the general knowledge about your diet . Your diet is all about the foods that are good for you. Foods with very high sugar index that could be sugar, either added artificially or even its own fruit sugar. But it includes foods that are high in sugar, such as soft drinks. Can drinks that kind of stuff or white pasta? White bread All rise. These boots are rapidly digested by your body, which also increases your blood sugar levels quite quickly. Your body, on the other hand, produces insulin and insulin helps you to control your blood sugar. But once it drops too much, it triggers the hunger feeling. So as a tip here, I would like to say you want to look at the foods that are high in protein and also in healthy fat, which helps you feel full for longer. The foods that include such um, protein and healthy fats include fish, chicken, eggs, beings, vegetables as a whole nuts and also low fed dairy products. Another point I'd like to raise with regards to feeling those hunger pangs is not getting enough sleep. Many of us don't actually realise that a lack of sleep may have a direct effect on how hungry we feel and how much we eat. As a result, they're off. Research has shown that sleep deprivation can increase the levels off the hunger hormone that is called ghrelin, and also it reduces the levels off the feeling for hormone called lepton. If one of those really isn't there, we're not in the right combination there. It will stop here feeling full. So therefore you always want to eat. So make sure that you do get enough sleep each night, and that will also help you to control your appetite. The 3rd 1 on my list is dehydration. Dehydration is a lot off a loss off fluid in your system. Rather than being hungry, you may simply be thirsty. It has been estimated that people inappropriately respond to thirst by eating instead of drinking more, and that's more than 60% off the time. People will do that. They may feel thirsty, but instead of just grabbing some fluid, they decided, Why don't I just eat something? The reason for that this. That is a part of the brain that's called the hipper thalamus, which regulates booth hunger and fist. And sometimes it just messes it all up in the system so it gets its signal mixed up. So it's advisable to always sipping on water to be an easy solution to calming your hunger pains. Drinking water between meals also helps you to feel generally fuller for longer. Another point that will help you to understand why you always feel hungry is that your blood sugar levels may be low. Feeling hungry, even after you have eaten, can be assumed to off abnormally low levels of sugar in your sister or in your blood. That's the glucose sugar we're talking about. And it could potentially be sign off diabetes, in many cases, in people with diabetes, they have taken too much insulin, Mr Meal, what over exercised, And in that case, they have a nab normally low level off glucose in the blood, even though it can occur very rarely in people who don't have diabetes. Usually the feelings that are associated with low blood sugar levels can be nausea and generalized weaknesses that can last from anything between 2 to 10 minutes before the systems resolving itself, but it's always worth double checking. It cause low blood sugar levels and, they said, could be an indicator off diabetes with Check that with your health professional and the last point I'd like to raise with regards off beating those hunger pains is that many people resource through emotional eating. Emotional eating means you're not actually hungry at all, but you feel that you want to eat because it may help you to reduce symptoms off stress or anxiety that, in other words, is sometimes cooled de comfort eating scenario. Some people also eat because they're just bored or they feeling lonely. Whichever way you look at it, the emotional eating is just eating for the sake, off eating without rennie requirements based on what the body actually requires. Here's a tip. If you're craving food and you know that you're not really hungry, give yourself a break. Wait 15 or 20 minutes and then you'll be surprised how simple distractions can't stop you from reaching for those snacks. Those snacks are usually high in calories high in sugar ends. On top of that, you could potentially feel really guilty about eating those snacks so it becomes a vicious circle. If you're also feeling like eating when you're not really hungry, replace the food that you're craving with sips of water. Because, as I mentioned earlier in the dehydration part water will fill up your stomach. It will fill up your system and reduce those hunger pains. So there you go. Five simple solutions to those hunger pangs. Number one. Looking at your diet and change the sugary diet to a more balanced, low fat and more protein diet. Make sure you get enough sleep. Ensure that you always have a bottle of water at hand so he can always sip. When you feel you want to break down those hunger pangs and also to keep yourself hydrated , check out your blood sugar levels by maybe making appointment at your GP or medical professional to see how your sugar levels in your blood off the glucose levels And, lastly, don't stress and replace stress with food. The next thing I want to give you is a couple of tips on how you can slim easily. The 1st 1 that I want to share with you is small is beautiful, smaller plate will encourage you to eat smaller portions. That's effect because you won't be able to pilots much food on a smaller plate. And therefore, as long as you stick to just that plate, you will eat less. That will help you to lose and control your weight. The 2nd 1 is munch and crunch. Eat your food slowly. Make sure your food is chewed well, and if you're sitting at the table and you're using your fork and knife, put them down while you're chewing your food. That will give you more time to chew properly and not rush to fill another mouthful with that folk. And lastly, it is shopping wisely. Stock up on healthy and nutritional foods. Remember what you buy is what you eat. Don't put those sweetie things all in your trolley. Go for the more healthier option off. Crunchy food, munchie food, low calorie food and low sugar food.
