Never Get Hunger Pangs Again!

Hunger pangs are something we all experience from time to time. However there are some people who seem to be hungry all the time! So if you are always hungry here's some information that may help you overcome the situation.

Why do people get hunger pangs in the first place?

  • Low blood sugar level
  • Mineral deficiency
  • Dehydration
  • Conditioned response
  • Hunger Pangs

    Low blood sugar level
    A low blood sugar level is the most common reason why people get hunger pangs. It results from skipping meals, reducing meal size too much, having too long between meals, limiting certain foods in a meal or eating the wrong foods in a meal. By simply eating the correct portion sizes in the correct macronutrient ratio (carbohydrate, protein and fat) and by having small, frequent meals, you can easily keep your blood sugar level stable and therefore, avoid any hunger pains that may result.

    Even though a low blood sugar level may be beneficial from a weight-loss perspective it is certainly not essential, particularly if it results in feeling hungry all the time. A stable blood sugar level that doesn't induce an insulin response is an easy way to receive the same fat-burning effects that result from having a low blood sugar level without the hunger pains! By simply following the nutritional principles outlined throughout the site, you will be able to easily achieve this.

    Mineral deficiency
    Since our food is often devoid of at least some of the nutrients our bodies require on a daily basis, it is not uncommon for many people to be minerally deficient to some extent, especially if they don't use a multi-vitamin/ mineral supplement every day. As a result, their bodies often crave minerals and this craving for minerals may be misinterpreted as being hunger pains.

    This is often noticed in people who eat relatively well but are still always hungry. Therefore, using a multi-vitamin/ mineral supplement every day is a great way to provide your body with any missing nutrients as well as help you overcome any hunger pains.

    Dehydration is another common reason why some people may often get hunger pains. When the body is mildly dehydrated the thirst mechanism may be misinterpreted as hunger pangs. Furthermore, it often takes the body quite some time to register the state of dehydration, which means that if you feel thirsty you are already dehydrated!

    If people who experience hunger pangs as a result of dehydration simply made an effort to drink more water instead of sodas (soft drink), coffee and/ or tea, they would be able to help their body overcome the hunger pains that they get.

    If you find water hard to drink on a regular basis, simply add some slices of lemon to improve the flavour. Then, carry around a water bottle with you everyhwere. Preferably one of the stainless steel water bottles that you can buy from health food stores. I believe this is a far better option than buying bottled water all the time.

    Conditioned response
    Conditioned responses are something that virtually all of us experience in different areas of life without even realising it! Conditioned responses (also known as Pavlovian Conditioning) are where the brain links two activities together and then, at some stage in the future, when we perform one task we are unconsciously motivated to perform the other.

    For example, when you get home each day from work or school, where is the first place you go? If you are like most people, you probably said the fridge or pantry. Now, is this because we are hungry or is it because we've performed that same action perhaps dozens or even hundreds of times in the past so our brains have linked the two activities together?

    This is a very common example of where conditioned responses may lead to hunger pangs. It is also common for some people to feel hunger pangs immediately after eating dinner! This is because in the past they have always eaten dessert. Therefore, if they go without their dessert after having dinner they may experience hunger pains even though they may feel full! This is another example of a conditioned response.

    If you experience hunger pangs on a regular basis you may like to try incorporating some of these principles into your lifestyle to help overcome them.
