Who hates being hungry? 🏻♀️If so, I feel ya. I’m in the middle of a fat loss phase myself right now and the hunger is starting to get reeeeal.
Instead of giving in and goin’ off my plan, I use these tips to make it feel more manageable.
Instead of eating teeny tiny little meals that leave you hungry an hour later, stick to 3 larger meals and maybe a snack or 2 if you need it. Make them a balanced mix of protein, veggies, and some carbs and fat which will be way more satisfying.
One of the best ways to fill up without putting a big dent in your calorie budget is is to eat lots of high volume foods. Think fruits veggies, egg whites, Greek yogurt, and oatmeal.

Prioritize protein. It will help fill you up and keep you full for longer. Aim for 20-30 grams with every meal.
This one is more of a mind trick, but don’t deprive yourself of the foods you love! That only leads to craving more of what you can’t have. Find ways to incorporate those foods into your diet in moderate amounts to help you feel more satisfied overall.
Keep your mind occupied and belly full by drinking lots of 0 or low calorie liquids. If you get bored of plain water, go for sparking or even the occasional diet soda if you’re down with that. I love me a Zevia!
Not getting enough sleep messes with hunger hormones and makes you crave more foods, especially the high calorie ones. Make sure you're gettin’ 7-9 hours every night to help keep you on track.
Caffeine can help blunt hunger and give you a boost of energy. But try not to use it s a crutch cause you can easily overdo it.
Instead of reaching for food the second you feel the slightest twinge of hunger, get your mind off of it by staying busy. Go for a walk, read a book, or call a friend.
Repeat after me. Hunger is NOT an emergency. And when fat loss is your goal, a little should be expected. Don’ - 6 hours ago
