Hands up if you’re scared of snacking when it comes to weight loss.
I’m a snacker. I don’t go a day without snacking.
But, I wasn’t always this way. I used to think the less I ate the more weight I’d lose.
And that’s great in theory. But, the reality? By the time the afternoon rolled around, I was so hungry that no amount of willpower was any match for my bodies built-in mechanisms to protect itself from starvation.
All I could think about was food. Sweet food. Starchy food. Food that would give my body the fuel I’d been starving it of all day.
I’d lose the ability to make good decisions about what I ate. And, I’d eat with such urgency that I’d miss the subtle signals of fullness my body was giving to me. Then the guilt would kick in. I’d feel like a failure for not having more control.
The good news is there’s a better way to eat that’ll leave you feeling satisfied and in control. You can still snack and lose weight – yes it’s possible and I’m proof of that!
By following the 3 step plan that I teach other mums in my free “Overcome your Cravings” mini-coaching sessions, I started to eat more throughout the day which included regular meals and snacks.
And you wanna know what happened?
I started making better food choices later in the day because I wasn’t starving, I learnt to eat without guilt or shame, and I started to lose weight!
I recently went live in my free Facebook group Easy Weight Loss For Busy Mums to talk all about snacking.
A few topics on the agenda were:
- How to figure out if you need to be snacking
- The best snacks to keep you feeling fuller for longer
- Snacks to avoid
- The fun experiment you can do to find the best snacks for you
If you struggle with eating too much sugar or processed foods, you don’t wanna surf on past this! Let me help you change your habits with my ideas, hints and tips on healthy, quick snacks to help you lose weight.
