hungry snacking“Fake” full? What the heck is that?

Glad you asked!

Food high in sugars and carbs leave you feeling “fake” full. This means your stomach feels full for a bit, but then before you know it, you’re hungry again, usually long before your next meal.

Fake full is not good for you because it means your meal did not provide the nutrition necessary to keep you going, and it highly increases your desire to snack and eat more poor food choices.

If you’re always hungry, then you’re always looking for quick eats, which usually results in poor nutrition as well as weight gain. 

The Worst Offenders

Here is a list of the foods that will fill you up, but only short term – meaning you will be hungry again long before your next meal.

  • Cereal
  • Pretzels and crackers
  • Bagels, toast, croissants
  • Granola bars
  • Store-bought soups
  • Juice
  • Artificial Sweeteners
  • Donuts and cookies
  • Alcohol
  • Fast food
  • Pasta
  • Corn
  • Potatoes
  • Pizza
  • Chips
  • Fried foods

Notice a trend? Foods high in sugars and carbs satisfy you quickly, but then leave you hungry again, with no actual nutritional gain.

How to Stay Full and Satisfied

When your stomach is full it sends a signal to your brain that turns off your desire to eat. Obviously, if you are trying to control your diet or even lose weight, this is a key trigger in resisting the urge to gorge on snacks or treats.

First, instead of something dangerous like gastric-bypass surgery, take a supplement that helps you feel fuller longer. For example TummyTrim was designed for just this purpose. Called “The World’s First Natural Lap Band”, TummyTrim is a natural alternative to expensive gastric bypass surgeries with none of the risks or dangerous side effects.

Developed by British scientists, TummyTrim’s herbal blend causes the stomach and intestines to believe that they are full, releasing appetite hormones and suppressing your desire to eat. It also helps your body to decrease cortisol, which promotes muscle growth and activates your metabolism, as well as to release insulin, which helps control blood sugar levels and inhibits fat storage.

Second, eat foods high in protein and fiber. Fiber and protein take longer to digest and thus, obviously keep you fuller longer. Foods like lean chicken, pork and fish, nuts, leafy greens, veggies, and dairy (without added sugar) all help fill you up with good nutrition and keep your hunger and snacking urges to a minimum.

In addition to taking the right kind of supplement and eating good foods, you also need to eliminate the bad foods. Sugars and refined carbs like candy, donuts, white breads, white pasta and more do three things: they make you “fake” full,  they spike your blood sugar which causes short term energy but long term exhaustion, and they also cause sugar addiction which makes you eat more than you need.

Think about it. How many times have you eaten a dessert or sugary/high carb snack even though you weren’t really hungry? You were just craving it…just because! Sugar addiction is a real problem and only getting worse in today’s society full of quick, sugar-filled snacking. Just like nicotine or other illegal drugs, our brain gets used to sugar and over time actually demands more, which means even if your stomach is full, your brain will tell you to eat more sugar. What’s worse, when you try to clean up your diet, you will go through actual sugar withdrawal, which includes headaches, hunger and cravings, irritability, exhaustion and more.

To reduce hunger and cravings you need to get out of the Fake Full trap! If you combine a supplement like TummyTrim with better food choices (more proFtein and fiber and less sugar), you will soon (After the sugar withdrawal wears off!) notice a massive difference in how you feel and how often you get cravings.

We all know feeling fuller longer, craving snacks less, and being able to feel satisfied and stick to a healthy meal plan is about the best way to lose weight and feel great!
