5 Foods That Beat Hunger and Cravings -> If You Let Them!

Quinoa helps control hunger and cravings to binge eat. Quinoa is high in protein and fiber.
Quinoa is an ancient "grain" that has made a modern comeback because of its high nutritional value. It is cooked and eaten just like rice, but is packed with fiber and protein that helps beat hunger, Plus, it is not nearly as refined as other options like rice, noodles and grits. Quinoa is a seed that releases energy slowly into your body. This means it helps your body avoid the sudden fluctuations in blood sugars that can lead to cravings for chocolate and other diet busting snacks!

Nuts get a bad rap for being high in fat and calories, but they have very useful calories from beneficial omega-3 fatty acids. These nut fats help promote healthy circulation and improved brain function. They are also stuffed with fiber and antioxidants which promote smooth digestion and stable blood sugar levels. The greatest thing about nuts is that they're so full of nutrients that just a few will go a long way. For example, 1/4 cup or a small handful of nut with low fat yogurt will provide a steady release of energy throughout the morning. Raw nuts are better for health.

Berries are AMAZING for sugar cravings. They are a welcoming combo of sweetness and fiber to help beat hunger. In addition to these wonderful qualities, berries are loaded with nutrients and are low in natural sugar. The form of sugar in berries - fructose - is harder for the body to break down than the highly refined glucose found in sugary snacks. This helps keep blood sugars stable while helping you avoid sudden hunger pangs. The work involved in digesting berries means less calories are converted into those troublesome fats that are usually stored around your body.

Beans are not just for vegans and vegetarians; they are a dieter's best friend for weight loss. They're tasty, versatile, filling, rich in fiber and vitamins. It doesn't matter whether you choose white or red beans, organic dried or bpa free canned, consider swapping out meat for beans in recipes for an added touch to meals (some people do this every other day for health). Beans help beat hunger and support weight loss without sacrificing any taste. They are high in carbs, so you can use them to balance out your energy needs' especially if power training.

Seeds such as sesame, sunflower or pumpkin make a healthy and tasty snack. They regulate blood sugar levels efficiently as well as aid in healthy digestion and circulation. In addition to snacking, many like hemp, sunflower and sesame seeds can be added to salads to provide flavor and texture. Seed make salad dish feel much more satisfying even without meat. You can also add them to morning meals. Chia or flax seed in smoothies are delicious. Sunflower or hemp seeds give yogurt that little extra substance when you don't have berries; makes it a filling meal.
