Thanksgiving is officially over. 🦃 It’s time to get back on track! Here are some helpful tips on how to eat healtheir. I have some more helpful diet tips I wanted to share — it’s on how to stay fuller longer. Have you eaten a meal and still felt hungry afterwards? Well, you’ve come to the right place! I’ve been trying to eat healthier and have tried them all. Here are my thoughts on how to stay fuller longer. I hope this helps!

1. Eat a balanced diet

Eat your carbs, fats, and proteins. Eat your vegetables and fruit. Don’t avoid fruit because it contains sugar. Fruit helps to cut down sugar cravings, and it’s very healthy for you. It contains vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Vegetables are packed with vitamins, minerals, and fiber as well. It is a low calorie food that will make you feel stuffed in large quantities. Keep in mind that having a variety of healthy foods in your diet will keep you full longer and won’t make you crave junk food.

2. No junk food

Stop eating junk food. Junk food is nutritionless and will only add extra pounds to your waistline. It will just make you crave more junk food. It’s that addicting. Quit it cold turkey.

3. Eat your fats

Stick to healthy fats from almonds to peanut butter. Fats really do keep you feeling fuller longer because it takes a while to digest in the body. Eating enough fat is good for the brain, skin, hair, and to help absorb vital nutrients that the body needs to function properly.

4. Eat more fiber

Vegetables are low in calories packed with minerals, vitamins, and fiber. Fruit makes a sweet, healthy satisfying snack inbetween meals. Increasing your fiber intake through vegetables and fruits will prevent you from overeating. Fiber is also beneficial for your digestion. It slows it down, so you end up feeling fuller much longer.

5. Eat until you feel full

You read that right. Eat until you feel full and satisfied! I don’t mean go all out and stuff your face. When you feel full, stop eating. Listen to your body. It will tell you when to stop. Trust your gut instinct.

6. Drink water

If you think you’re hungry, try drinking water. Many people confuse thirst for hunger. You could just be dehydrated. I highly recommend drinking a cup of water before your meal. Doing this can trick your mind into thinking that you are full, so you won’t ruin your diet.

Is Dairy Ruining My Skin?

Leave a comment

After talking about my new skin care routine, I was wondering if dairy could be another culprit that’s giving me acne. I recently switched from a vegan diet to a vegetarian diet. A vegetarian diet that consists of eggs and dairy products. I have noticed that my skin is looking different too. The texture and condition of my skin just reacts differently to my skincare and makeup. It’s not as smooth anymore. My skin has been a little bit more oily too. These are just observations.

I came up with a plan. Here it is.

I’m going to stick to my current skin care routine for a week, which only consists of two skin care products — face wash and an acne treatment. If my skin doesn’t change along with consuming dairy, then I’ll know that dairy is indeed causing issues for me. I have been thinking about going back to being vegan or cutting dairy out of my diet. Hmmm. Let’s see what happens after a week. Only time will tell.
