Weight Loss Recipes to Keep Hunger Away

Healthy snack recipes are mandatory to staying on any nutrition program. Hunger is an unfortunate, but necessary, part of any weight loss endeavor. Sorry to burst your bubble, if you were thinking you could achieve an awesome body without suffering a bit.

When your body is burning away fat, you are basically cannibalizing yourself. Can you say, "Ouch?!" All those pleasurable moments you've spent horking down cookies and pizza... Did you think you wouldn't have to pay for that?

Come on, now. You know better!

So, hunger is part of the package. But, that doesn't mean we need to be masochistic about it. There are a few tricks you can do to tame the pain.

1. Eat Frequently. Meals and healthy snacks spaced 2-3 hours a part helps not only speed your metabolism, but it will keep something in you belly most of the time.

2. Balance Each Meal. Now, you don't need to be very particular about macronutrient ratios necessarily, but if you eat a little food from at least two of these groups during a meal or snack, it will help satiate you. For example, combine fruit and oatmeal, or nuts and cottage cheese, not just a protein shake.

3. Guzzle Water. Never end a meal or snack without downing at least 16 ounces of water. It'll bloat your belly enough to leave you not wanting more food.

You can have a cup of broccoli with a 1/3 cup of rice, plus an apple for around 200 calories. Or you could have slightly less than a 1/2 cup of ice cream. Which will fill you up more?

5. Fillers. Okay, most of the time fillers are bad for your body, but I'm talking natural fillers here. Fiber. Celery, wheat bran, mushrooms, etc. Bulk for little calories. Make it count!

Get a simple or as creative as you like when whipping up your own healthy snack recipes. I tend to just grab something easy, instead of concocting some elaborate dish. Time is, more times than not, higher on my priority list that fancy foods.
