Control Hunger While Dieting
No matter what kind of diet you're
on-low-fat, high-protein, or low-carb-hunger may be
lurking to derail many weeks of discipline.
Ways to manage those hunger pangs include;
minimizing the intake of trigger foods like potato
chips or other foods with "hidden" fat or calories;
following a diet plan that uses a meal replacement
approach and portion-controlled meals to reduce
caloric intake; aerobic and heavy resistance
exercise; relapse prevention; social support; and
Regular physical activity is essential for long-term
weight control, stress reduction, and overall
health. Experts recommend that you participate in
both aerobic activity and resistance exercise.
Aerobic activity strengthens the heart and burns
calories. Resistance exercise strengthens bones,
builds muscle, and increases metabolism. But before
you begin any new exercise program, consult with
your doctor first.
