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?
