How to Feel More Satisfied After Meals

By Donna Stark

Do you have a few extra pounds you need to lose? Would you like to reduce the number of times you find yourself mindlessly snacking? If so, you may need to make some changes to your diet, but do so wisely! Because if you don't, you can still find yourself hungry, unsatisfied, and craving more foods than you ever have before. So, where does one start? Well, here are some simple tips from your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic that can help you reach your goals while also feeling completely satisfied after every meal. Take a look.

Consume More Vegetables

There may not be room for dessert after your meal, but there is always room for more vegetables on your plate! In addition to providing your body with more vitamins and minerals, incorporating more vegetables into your meals will also make them more filling! Either pile them on your plate as they are or sneak them into other components of the dinner. Adding cauliflower rice to your taco meat or chopped vegetables to your spaghetti sauce are perfect examples of how to bulk up your meals.

Increase the Fiber Content

Adding more fiber to your diet will do more than support a healthy digestive system. It will also keep you feeling full sooner and for longer! Here are some easy strategies on how to include more in your meals.

  • Replace refined grains with whole grains
  • Consume more vegetables and fruit rich in fiber, such as cabbage, broccoli, spinach, raspberries, avocadoes, and pears
  • When possible, leave the skins on your fruits and vegetables
  • Substitute your sweet breakfast items for oatmeal and bran flakes
  • Snack on more nuts and seeds

Remember Your Lean Protein

Just like fiber, lean protein sources will also keep you feeling satisfied for longer throughout the day. Think about adding a piece of salmon or some chicken on top of your salad, experiment with different recipes that call for beans, or give some plant-based sources of protein a try! Who knows? You may find out you like something new in the process!

Feeling Satisfied and Getting Through the Day

By following the tips above and planning for more balanced meals in your diet, you will be able to feel more satisfied and content after eating. You may also reach your goals a lot faster than you imagined. So, go ahead and commit to making these changes today! They could be exactly what is needed to propel you in the right direction!
