Still Hungry!


Q: Often when I’m finished with my meal, I still want to eat more. What can I do?

A: One strategy to increase satiety during meals is to make sure you have included plenty of high-volume, low-calorie items to fill up your stomach without filling up with calories. For example, load up on fruits and vegetables (as found in salads), low-calorie vegetable soups, and whole grains.

Another strategy involves mindful eating, where you slowly eat each bite and savor it. Many people have found this helps them get in tune with their feelings of fullness for the first time in ages.If you still have a problem with appetite even after trying these strategies, you might want to seek help from a weight-management specialist. There are many people struggling with appetite, as it is an ingrained instinct that is hard to overcome. There are also medications that a doctor can prescribe for appetite suppression if you have medically serious obesity.
