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.
