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
- Wild Salmon
- Nuts (almonds, walnuts, brazil nuts)
- Coconut oil, Avocado Oil, MCT Oil
- Legumes (beans, peas, lentils)
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
