How to Feel Fuller, Longer: So You’ll Eat Less and Feel Fabulous!

Health

Have you ever eaten an apple for a snack, only to be hungry again an hour later? Or a bowl of cereal in the morning, but by 11AM you find yourself thinking “I wonder if I have any Girl Scout cookies in my trunk”.

So how can we feel more satisfied and stay fuller for longer? Being satiated with wholesome foods, in the right combination, translates into increased energy and improved vitality. It can also mean making better food choices and avoiding those annoying cravings in the afternoons and evenings. You know the ones, where you’ll do anything to get your hands on something salty-chewy-sugary-crunchy-greasy; in other words, dense carbohydrates for instant fuel.

It all comes down to regulating your blood sugar. Let’s go back to that apple which is made primarily of carbohydrates. It begins to break down with help from enzymes in your saliva as you chew. Carbs, especially the simple ones, metabolize very quickly which raises your blood sugar.

Blood Sugar Balance Chart

Your body responds by secreting a rush of Insulin from the Pancreas to drive the extra glucose for storage into your fat cells. There is an opposing hormone, called Glucagon, which works to elevate your blood sugar when glucose levels are low. These two hormones work in harmony to keep your body in balance. Imagine the arcade pinball game where you are using your right and left paddles to keep the pinball in the middle, right where your blood sugar level should be; between 80-120 mg/dL (milligrams per deciliter). Abusing those hormones on an ongoing basis by eating overly-processed foods and too many simple carbohydrates–especially sweets–and you’ll be setting yourself up for insulin resistance and the potential for Type II diabetes.

Once you combine your carbohydrate, such a vegetable, brown rice or quinoa, with a lean protein (I’ll use a chicken breast as an example) and a healthy fat (such as avocado), you have designed a meal that will metabolize much more slowly. Your body will release the calories at a slower rate so your blood sugar won’t spike. Because it metabolizes gradually, you will enjoy sustained energy for a longer period of time, feel more satiated for longer, your hormones will be regulated, and unless you are a purely emotional eater, you’ll find yourself eating less!

With our ever increasingly busy lives, it’s often challenging to find lean proteins on-demand, and even more so to have the convenience of healthy meal options designed with the optimal balance of lean protein, complex carbohydrates and healthy fats.

What started out as my own desire to make healthy foods more convenient for my family and friends–especially as I began to witness many of them becoming sick–evolved into a passion and stewardship for others who share in this common goal.  I’d like to introduce you to Toni’s OatMEAL which I designed to keep you FULL and FUELED for hours! It’s the perfect blend of lean protein (whey, egg white or plant-based), complex carbohydrates (whole rolled oats) and healthy fats (flax and nuts, depending upon the blend).  It is delicious and convenient, just add hot water and go!
