I get this question a lot from clients/friends and family…

“I just ate a healthy lunch but I am still hungry – What should I do?”

I ask – “Well…what did you eat?”

A recent answer from my cousin Josh was – “Meatloaf, apple and rice”

My answer – “White rice is a highly processed carb which basically turns to sugar in your system…after which you have a sugar drop and you’re hungry again. There’s very little nutritional value or fiber in white rice”

So we made a simple change – Replaced white rice with quinoa (more fiber). I also recommend adding fats to your meals if you are having a similar problem.

I add avocado and walnuts to my salad to help fill me up 🙂

Here are some more suggestions to fill up your tank 🙂

FILLING OPTIONS for meat eaters, vegetarians and vegans

  • Grass fed red meat
  • Organic butter from grass fed milk, organic cheese, high-fat organic dairy (avoid skim or low-fat)
  • Organic Egg Yolks
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Avocado
  • Wild Salmon
  • Nuts (almonds, walnuts, brazil nuts)
  • Coconut oil, Avocado Oil, MCT Oil
  • Legumes (beans, peas, lentils)
  • Quinoa

The easiest way to get and stay full is to add fiber and fats while eliminating processed foods, which are high in all things detrimental to your health: sugar, processed carbs, and bad fats.

Sometimes it takes a small change to get a positive result!

Have a great weekend 🙂

Let me know if you have any questions!
