The struggle is so real.
How You Can Stop Being Hungry All The Time

I think a lot of people can relate to this problem... We just can't stop eating! As soon as we're done munching on something, we're already thinking about our next meal.

Well, the good news is - our winter has been quite mild so far. As a consequence, we end up eating way less than we could have because people tend to eat more as temperatures get colder. So, thank you, mother nature, for not making us fat... sort of. We're still always hungry. So here are some tricks to help you deal with your hunger games.

1. Drink water

Yes, you probably know that sometimes our mind mistakes thirst for hunger. If your stomach is growling, drink some water. It will fill it up and help curb your "hunger".

2. Get busy

You're not hungry, you're just bored. Most people tend to eat out of boredom, so get busy: do your laundry, clean up your house, read MTL blog posts, etc.

3. Have snacks in between meals

Healthy snacks in between breakfast, lunch and dinner are a must. Make sure to include foods that are rich in fiber. Fruits, vegetables and whole grains are all good examples of snacks that are guaranteed to keep you full until your next food intake.

4. Exercise

Feeling hungry? Go for a walk or a jog. The adrenaline spike will curb your appetite for a certain amount of time.

5. Brush your teeth

Brushing your teeth will leave your mouth clean and minty... It will help decrease feelings of hunger and you'll think twice before munching on something.

6. Take a nap

Naps can re-energize your body and cut your cravings. Most people don't feel hungry as soon as they wake up, a power nap can recreate this feeling.

7. Never skip meals

It's crucial to have three full meals and two snacks in between breakfast, lunch and dinner. Never skip a meal. Your body needs to get used to a proper food intake schedule in order to function well.

8. Avoid sugar

Foods high in sugar taste great but they won't keep you full for a long time. They burn through your body very quickly and leave you feeling hungry soon after you're done eating.

9. Chew gum

Scientific studies show that chewing gum can cut feelings of hunger almost immediately. It tricks your brain into thinking that you're actually eating, so it can definitely help you out.

10. Suck in your belly

Did you know that it is recommended to always keep your abdominal muscles contracted? It will help get your abs in shape and compress your stomach in size, making you feel less hungry. Try it right now!
