Food choices that help us feel full with fewer calories

To be successful at lifelong weight management, we need to make food choices that help us feel full with fewer calories and make sure that we don’t feel hungry. Feeling full and satisfied while eating nutritious foods should be a critical part of any successful weight loss eating plan.

Hunger is the most significant problem with weight loss and a diet that results in hunger will never be successful. It is hard not to eat when we get hungry. It goes against human nature. When we get hungry, we tend to want to eat more. The feeling of an empty stomach is very difficult, if not impossible, to tolerate and at some point we give in. You diet is not going to work for you if you are hungry or tired all the time.

It is hard to force yourself to eat less. But it's possible to choose what we eat. Some foods keep us full and satisfied, while with others hunger returns soon after eating.

Lost 91 pounds without feeling hungry

In May 2010 my weight was 261 pounds. Since then I learned a lot about physiology, nutrition, health and exercise science, and I believe I know more about losing weight than an average person. When it comes to shedding pounds, it is what and when we eat that counts most. If you change what you eat and how you eat, you will be able to lose weight. I did it and it worked very well for me. I lost 91 pounds without feeling hungry.

While staying home and sitting through Hurricane Sandy

This storm forever changed our lives. Hurricane Sandy brought horrific reality to New York. I could see with my own eyes the nature’s devastating power. I thought that NYC was immune to dangers like this.

Whether you were affected directly by Hurricane Sandy, or just fitness what is going on in New York, the devastating event has caused many of us to feel way more fragile.
For some New Yorkers live is slowly and gradually returning to normalcy, but for many it is going to take much longer. While times are extremely tough for those who still have no power, heat and water, there are many examples that Hurricane Sandy brought out the best in us.
It appears that at a moment of extreme polarization, Mother Nature brought us together and the we're-all-in-this-together spirit is being felt everywhere.
Strange thing happened to me. While staying home and sitting through Hurricane Sandy I ended up with eating even when I was not really hungry. I am surprised by my response to the storm.
