Why can’t people control their appetite?

According to Dutch research, people’s desire to “eat a little more” is very strong, and it is very difficult to overcome such desires. In order to satisfy such desires, people will want to use all kinds of excuses to eat. If you want to overcome your desires, it is important not to let yourself feel like you want to eat. As a countermeasure, drinking plenty of water and eating more foods rich in dietary fiber is the best way.

According to the study of the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands, the imagination will become very powerful in the state of “knowing that you can’t eat but still want to eat”, that is to say, the ability of human beings to find excuses for themselves will also change. Stronger. “To work overtime today, you have to eat more energy.” “Today, eat it tomorrow, then run back and run back.”… The brain will instantly come up with various reasons that seem very legitimate, prompting yourself to reach out and satisfy the expansion. Appetite.

That is to say, if a “more want to eat” mentality is produced, such people often cannot lose weight. Because only the mentality of “I don’t want to eat” is the fundamental way to stop eating too much. How can I make myself resist the temptation?

Dr. Kelly Grassman, a nutritionist, believes that “drinking water” and “foods rich in dietary fiber, such as vegetables” are more reliable. Drinking water can suppress the feeling of emptying that should not be produced. Drinking water before and during meals can make the stomach feel full and quickly, thus reducing the amount of food intake. In addition, eating vegetables rich in water and dietary fiber when eating can quickly produce satiety and reduce food intake.

Another way is to use smaller, larger quantities of tableware as much as possible. At first glance, it makes people feel a lot, but it is easy to make people feel full. The number of times with a small spoon to the mouth, and the small tableware filled with food, can visually stimulate the body to feel full.

Of course, if you really don’t eat too much, don’t let yourself think that “I am hungry” and “these are not enough to eat” is very important. Self-psychological suggestion is also a good means of controlling appetite.
