How to reduce your appetite 

Are you someone who struggles with snacking? Could you easily eat a big lunch and still feel unsatisfied? Or perhaps you lose track of what you have had throughout the day – how many snacks was that again? If that’s you, then you will want to look at how to reduce your appetite healthily, and this article is here to help.   

Having a large appetite 

Do you eat all day long and still have room for a delicious dessert after a meal? If this is you, we hate to break it to you, but this can lead to weight gain, and you will soon be stressing that you can’t fit into your favourite outfit.  

One way to reduce your appetite is to take medication, but that is not only expensive but also unhealthy. The best approach is to do it naturally. Did you know that you can train your body in this regard? Much like training your muscles in the gym, you can do the same for your appetite. Your body becomes accustomed not only to what you consume but also to how much you eat. And once this switch is flipped in your mind, your body will naturally follow. It’s a matter of habit. However, we are only talking about unhealthy snacks here. You still need to pay attention to what you have for your meals and ensure you have a regular breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  

Below are a few tips to help you healthily reduce your appetite. 

Tip #1 

Avoid sweet drinks and alcohol and opt for water during meals when you can. We’re not talking about litres of water but taking a sip of water after each bite will make you feel fuller faster. 

Tip #2 

Try halving the portions you usually have. It may take some getting used to at first, but after a week, you won’t notice the difference, and you’ll be satisfied with the halved portion. Your stomach will naturally start to shrink, making you feel full faster. 

Tip #3 

If you are a salad eater, great. However, if you still binge alongside your salad, try making your next salad using strong-flavoured ingredients such as tuna or goat cheese. These tasty but potent flavours can be overpowering and stop you from overeating. 

Tip #4 

In this case, a good start is truly half the work. So begin your day with a healthy breakfast. Cottage cheese and fruit make a great combination. 

Tip #5 

Make sure to eat regularly. If you consume a lunch portion meant for multiple people, you’ll find yourself hungry again quickly. Eat a little less, but make sure to have something to eat every two hours. You’ll notice that after dinner, you’ll feel completely satisfied and ready to roll into bed.
