More Room Needed for Weight Loss Questions
Today’s question really needed it’s own space because food cravings are a huge piece when people try to learn how to lose weight.
Just a quick recap in case you are joining me with this blog.
In the first blog I started answering weight loss questions and giving weight loss tips because I was really close to wrapping up the long-awaited Eat Right for Life Plan.
Still working on it – still releasing the Plan in early September. Easy, permanent weight loss without pills, boxed foods, nasty shakes, expensive supplements are right around the corner. You’ll learn how to lose weight by finding the right foods for you and using great weight loss tips.
But before I finalize everything and send it off to the technical magicians that will make it available, I need to make sure I have covered everything. So, I asked people to take a few minutes to let me know what their top two questions about weight loss are that I absolutely NEED to answer in the Eat Right for Life Plan.
Wow, the response has been amazing! Thank you so much for helping me out so I can help others learn how to lose weight. The Eat Right for Life Plan is improving every single day thanks to your responses.
I started adding a weight loss question and answer every day to the previous post but people sent me notes saying they’d like to quickly see all the weight loss questions as I’m answering them – i.e. titles. So, if the answer is long enough, like today’s, I’ll make a new post every day. Hopefully you’ll continue to learn more about easy, sustainable, permanent weight loss. Lots of great information on how to lose weight and some fun weight loss tips.

Weight Loss Questions Answered:
What are the best foods to curb appetite “binging”?
There can be any number of reasons a person continues to eat or want food. Identifying why it’s happening is the first step. Sometimes people keep eating because they aren’t satisfied, they are in a habit of eating at a certain time/place, they may be bored or tired, they may be dehydrated, or they may still be hungry. The best weight loss tip is to start by noticing if there is a pattern.
Do you feel the need for sweets after a lower fat meal? This can happen if the body wants more fuel for energy and sugary foods will provide a quick source. My weight loss tip is to add a bit more high quality fat to the meal / drizzle a little extra virgin olive oil over your vegetables.
Do you want a snack every time you sit down to watch television? If so, this is a patterned behavior not related to food. Weight loss tip: change how you watch / sit in a different chair, multitask with another project, move during commercials, drink water instead of eating.
The same is true if you find yourself eating because of boredom / find something else to do. My weight loss tip is to go for a walk, read a book, take a hot bath.
Do you want more food because you didn’t sleep well? When we aren’t fully rested important hormones that regulate hunger become out of balance. At this point it’s better to sleep than to eat, that’s a reality easy weight loss tips – go to bed ;).
One of the signs of dehydration is hunger. Our body identifies the thirst but we interpret it as hunger. My weight loss tip is to have a large glass of water, wait 15-20 minutes and then determine if you are still hungry. If feelings of hunger persist, then you may not have eaten enough and good snacks like hummus and raw vegetables will help not only the hunger but help with weight loss.
