Lose weight by eating foods that suppress appetite

According to Mayo Clinic research, foods with a low energy density can help control hunger. The energy density of a particular food refers to the number of calories contained within a given volume. For example, a small piece of cake or a pastry may contain a large amount of calories. It is said to have a high energy density. Celery, conversely, has few calories for a large amount, so it has a low energy density. These are the kinds of foods to include in the diet to suppress hunger. Psyllium is a soluble fiber that adds bulk to the diet and provides a sense of fullness. Including more fiber can help weight loss. Add a serving of psyllium powder, a tablespoon of lemon juice, and a couple of drops of stevia to a large glass of cold water. Mix thoroughly and enjoy.

Lentils have a large amount of fiber, which helps dieters with satiety. Lentils boast 8 grams of fiber per serving. Much of this fiber is soluble and aids in the stabilization of blood sugar. This helps prevent spikes in blood sugar, as well as subsequent fat accumulation. The nutritional content of lentils is remarkable. In addition to the fiber, they also have a large of amount of protein, folic acid, iron, and magnesium. Protein can suppress hunger by its slower rate of travel through the digestive system. Nine grams of healthy proteins are in every half cup serving of lentils.  A cup of zucchini has a mere 20 calories. One interesting way to use zucchini is to prepare it as a pasta substitute. It can be processed through a spiral slicer to resemble thin spaghetti noodles. Add low-calorie tomato sauce or salad dressing for flavor. This quick meal also provides protein and fiber, and is very low in cholesterol, making it a highly beneficial food that can help healthy weight loss efforts.
