Do you sometimes feel like your stomach is a bottomless pit? We all know that feeling, especially when we’re dieting. The trouble is that when you restrict your food intake, your body starts to pump out more ghrelin, the hunger hormone, to get you to eat more. Luckily, there are some ways you can satisfy your rumbling belly without stacking on heaps of extra calories. With these healthy appetite-suppressing tricks, you’ll feel fuller and crave less, getting you well on track to reaching your weight loss goals.
Although parents dislike the bribing or bargaining with their kids to make them eat healthy, they should know that they are doing their offspring a tremendous favor, and will eventually be rewarded for their persistence.

You don’t have to be a Master Chef to cook healthy foods. By using some basic healthy cooking techniques, you can reduce the amount of fat and oil going in to your food, and therefore reduce the impact on your diet. Each tablespoon of oil you use when frying adds more than 100 calories, and around 14 grams of fat, to your meal. Although some of this fat is the good kind, it’s important not to overdo it. By switching to some healthier cooking methods, you can eliminate some of this extra fat, making it better for your diet and your overall health.
And it doesn’t mean losing all the flavour, either! You can still retain all the taste and nutrients in your food without adding excessive amounts of fat or salt. If you use some of these methods more often, you can make a huge difference to your weight loss plans, as well as discovering some delicious new ways to enjoy your food.
