A lot of people these days are becoming diet conscious. People are now starting to make healthier food choices, and CrossFitters are no exemption to this “trend.” Aside from making your digestive track happy, natural and healthy foods can also make you look good on the outside.
No matter how hard we try to stick to our diet, temptation always has its way of testing our sense of control. Don’t you just wish there is a magic pill that could control our hunger pangs? If you are having a hard time in this department, then this post is for you.
Here are 5 foods that help control your appetite.
1. AN APPLE A DAY KEEPS THE DOCTOR AWAY
Avoid extra visits to your doctor due to unbalanced blood sugar. Soluble fiber in apples, called pectin, reduces the amount of sugar and calories that’s absorbed into the bloodstream after a meal. That’s good news for folks who want to prevent type 2 diabetes, but it also makes apples one of the best snacks for dieters. Apple pectin prevents spikes in blood sugar that lead to increased fat storage. It will help you avoid the blood sugar “crash” that leaves you craving more food.
How long it will keep me satiated?
