What Is Hunger?
What is hunger? Are you actually hungry or are you just craving food because you drove past a McDonald’s? Today, Devon and I are going to share why we crave foods when we do, what hunger actually is, and our top 20 tips on how to suppress hunger and food cravings to maximize your weight loss results.
Tune in and learn more as we dive into our top hacks to reduce hunger.
- Add more fiber-rich foods to your diet.
- Drink coffee; especially decaf coffee.
- Nibble on dark chocolate or something bitter.
- Eat more protein/lean meats during meals compared to fatty meats like buffalo wings or rib eye steaks.
- How eating more protein rather than carbohydrates will help increase your weight loss results.
- Slamming your water – drink 2-3 glasses of water 10 minutes before your meal or start your meal off with a soup.
- Eat mindfully by thoroughly chew your food and slowing down how much you’re eating by being present in the moment.
- Eat solid foods rather than liquid foods (except for hearty soups) like sugary smoothies or juices.

- Take the most important vitamins such as probiotics or Vitamin D but be careful about which brands you select.
