Getting Your Calorie Count On? How To Trick Yourself Into Feeling Full

February 6, 2013 ‐ By Julia Austin


The main reason people fail at dieting is that they hate to feel hungry! Feeling hungry is distracting, can put us in a bad mood and make us unable to go about the rest of our day. But, considering that you can eat a giant bowl of pasta and still want more food (admit it: you can), sensations of hunger or fullness don’t originate only in the stomach. The mind is very much at play in determining feelings of being satisfied after a meal. Lucky for you, you can trick your mind.

    I’m a minor in Nutrition, & my prof taught me that eating an apple before a meal will make me eat far less & be full. Don’t have to be an apple, but anything w/ fiber in it. B/c i’m always hungry lol, good thing i have a fast metabolism

      I’ve heard that too but apples for some reason make my stomach growl louder!! So what I started doing is while I eat the apple, I drink a 20 oz. glass of water. Yeah, I’m usually making a mad dash to the restroom but I don’t feel hungry!! Lol I drink water with EVERYTHING.
