The Science of Appetite

Source: http://www.time.com

Nature prefers you fat, but you can take control. New research could explain better approaches to dieting and how to curb your appetite.


1. Eat Fiber
Unrefined foods, especially those that are high in fiber, stimulate appetite-suppressing hormones and make you feel full.

2. Brush your teeth
Take a break from that ice cream to brush. The flavor change helps you resist eating more

3.Be consistent
Eating breakfast and regularly scheduled meals keeps hormone levels steady and quashes hunger pangs

4. Slow down
It takes a while for the brain to realize that the stomach is stretching. Eating slowly gives the brain time to catch on
