Food That Prevent Overeating

Jul 29, 2015 12:11 PM EDT | By DonDon Navidad

The researchers at Rutgers found in a new study  that overindulging especially in high-fat food could be caused not by a lack of fortitude, but by the unmanageable hormonal response triggered by an imbalance in the brain.

If a person lacks the willpower to stop over eating, the best way a person can deal with such ordeal is to have a series of strategic fight-back foods ready. These are foods that will keep the cravings of a person at bay and at the same time have their brain satisfied by signaling to the stomach that it is full. Foods that can stop overeating are actually available.

Green tea can shrink a person's fat cells, proven in the new study from the University of Florida. The study suggests that in order to lessen belly fat, a person must drink green tea. As proven in a study, a person who drinks 4 to 5 cups of green tea each day for 12 weeks, will lose an average of two more pounds. And as the researchers said that, the unique catechins found in green tea trigger the release of fat from fat cells.

Skim Cappuccino will also put an end to food cravings. A person consuming foam-based foods and drinks, such as cappuccino, can significantly reduce appetite and snack cravings. As a person's gut and brain are pretty gullible, the air-injected fare by a cappuccino tricks the person into feeling fuller.

Hummus can make a person feel fuller. Hummus or houmous is a Levantine and Egyptian food dip or spread made from cooked, mashed chickpeas blended with tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and garlic. And a review published in the journal Obesity, said that beans, chickpeas, lentils and peas, could keep a person from the snack drawer until dinner.

A New York City-based nutrition expert, Bonnie Taub-Dix, RD, suggests pairing hummus with fiber-rich veggies like snap peas, jicama, carrots or celery for an easy holdover when a person is making dinner.

Avocado is a food that suppresses a person's appetite. A Nutrition Journal published study, found that a person who ate half a fresh avocado with lunch can definitely has a 40 percent decreased desire to eat for hours afterward.
