Losing Weight Does NOT Mean You Have To Be Hungry All The Time

If you are trying to manage your weight, it does NOT mean you have to be hungry all the time. If you eat the right kinds of food, being hungry will be a past condition.

Here's a typical example:
You have decided to lose weight so you choose a low sugar/low carb eating plan. You read the eating plan info in my FREE ebook How To Lose (at least) 20 Pounds In 1 Month (click the title to download your copy).

You are not counting calories, only grams of sugar and carbs you consume.

The sugar/carb guidelines are strict - 15 grams of sugar and 120 grams of carbs (six servings). To prevent the hunger pangs, you could transition to the lower sugar/carb guidelines. Or, you can substitute more good fats in your diet to address any hunger you may experience. What are good fats? Foods like avocado and certain nuts fits the bill.

Fats Help Satisfy Hunger 

Remember that fats (except for trans fats) have been replaced by sugar and bad carbs as the bad boys of nutrition. This is what my fav doc ( has to say about about fats to manage weight:
Consider that frequent hunger is oftentimes a clue that you're not eating correctly. 
As a general rule, most people likely need upwards of 50-85 percent healthy fat in their diet, along with high amounts of vegetable carbs, moderate-to-low amounts of high-quality protein, and very little, if any, non-vegetable or grain carbs.  
Fat is far more satiating than carbs, so if you have cut down on carbs and feel ravenous, thinking you "can't do without the carbs," remember this is a sign that you haven't replaced them with sufficient amounts of fat.  
You do want to make sure you're adding the correct types of fat though. Sources of healthy fats include: 
  • Olives and olive oil.
  • Avocados. 
  • Coconut and coconut oil, as well as other unheated organic nut oils.
  • Butter made from raw grass-fed organic milk.
  • Raw nuts, particuarly macadamia nuts.
  • Organic pastured egg yolks.
  • Grass-fed and finished meats. 
Buy that funny-looking avocado, slice it up into salads or make yourself a healthy avocado dip. It's a low-sugar, high fat food to help manage hunger and weight.
