ARE YOU EATING ENOUGH ?
Fibre that is……
Fibre is great on a number of levels
Cravings exist because your blood sugar levels have abruptly changed, particularly over the age of 40, they were steady then started to come down quickly.
Here is one tip that can help…
ADD MORE FIBRE
High fibre foods are low in calories, but keep you feeling full longer.
Eat a diet rich in fibre to control cravings and late night hunger.
Soluble fibre stabilises blood sugar levels so that you don’t end up craving sugary treats at night, and insoluble fibre fills your stomach to reduce hunger pangs.
Eat a fibre rich evening meal that contains plenty of non starchy vegetables (ones that are grown above the ground), and drink plenty of water throughout the day as well.
Fibre helps with constipation and excess hormone clearance.
Soluble Fibre – fruits & berries, vegetables, oat bran, barley, seed husks, flaxseed, psyllium, dried beans, lentils, peas etc
Insoluble Fibre – Chia seeds, wheat bran, corn bran, rice bran, the skins of fruits and vegetables, nuts, seeds, dried beans and wholegrain foods.
So, you see, we should all be eating plenty.
Another reason to eat/drink your veggies.
Have a great day
