No one likes to be hungry.
And it’s so easy and cheap to get high calorie food, hunger only seems to happen when we’re so busy we forget to eat.
But since we’re trying to lose fat and get lean, we are eating less food than we need on purpose.
Being hungry is actually a good thing.
Chances are, if your stomach doesn’t have that empty feeling at least a few times throughout the day, it means you’re eating too much to lose fat.
Even if you do intermittent fasting and have big meals like me, you’ll still feel hungry sometimes.
This is 100% normal and anyone who doesn’t experience hunger while dieting probably isn’t being honest and/or getting the results they want.
Fortunately, there is a way to minimize it.
The best way to minimize hunger is to get the basics covered first.
- Drink 3-5 liters of water per day.
- Drink black coffee or green tea.
- Stay productive during the day.
- Get plenty of quality sleep.
And in my opinion, skipping breakfast and eating all your calories later in the day works best for most people.
Yes, you’ll probably be hungry in the morning, but after you adjust you might be surprised how productive you’re able to be without food.
The coffee and water will help curb your appetite as will staying busy and feeling rested.
Then you can enjoy a delicious and nutritious protein filled meal in the afternoon.
Don’t forget, you still have to track calories.
Eating the right amount of calories is still the number one reason why fat loss happens.
Hunger can be a sign that you’re dieting and losing fat, but it’s possible to be hungry while eating too much every day too.
So tracking calories + intermittent fasting + a bit of morning hunger = you’re on the right track.
