Cravings? These natural foods fill you up for a long time and help curb your appetite.
Especially if you are trying to lose weight, cravings for sweets are inconvenient. But there are helpers against it! We show you six natural, unprocessed foods that make you full for a while and regulate the feeling of hunger.
Citrus fruits such as lemons, limes, and oranges curb appetite because the pectins they contain keep you full for a long time. So just a slice of lemon in water is a great weapon against ravenous appetite.
Protein inhibits the feeling of hunger. Almonds are therefore perfect as a snack in between meals and a healthy substitute for chocolate.
Pulses such as lentils and peas contain a lot of protein and fiber, which are very healthy fillers! So even a small portion of curry or salad is enough.
Tomatoes have a high chromium content. Chromium regulates the blood sugar level and so also our ravenous appetite. As a snack, soup, or in a salad, tomatoes are a great appetite suppressant!
Whether as porridge, with yogurt and fruit, or as an addition to a smoothie: oatmeal swells in the stomach and keeps you full longer. In addition, the magnesium in oatmeal stimulates fat burning.
The Germans' favorite fruit also helps against ravenous appetite. Apples regulate the glucose balance in the body and satisfy the appetite. On top of that, there's a load of vitamins!
