How can we prevent snacking?

  • Include a lot of fats(unsaturated) and proteins in your diet. They are calorie-dense and lead to the secretion of satiating hormones in our body which will keep your cravings at bay.
  • Reduce refined carbs from your diet. They are nutritionally bland and will lead to more cravings.
  • Practice intermittent fasting. It will allow your elevated insulin levels to subside.
  • If your job is labor-intensive and you need to eat something, go for foods like seeds, nuts, and yogurt. They are any day better than refined carbs which give you a surge of glucose for a limited period of time.
