Six foods that can make you more hungry
After rich holiday eating, it may pay to bring meals back into focus toward a healthier lifestyle. Some foods can actually leave you hungry after consuming them. Here are six of them.
According to Aurora Health, the following foods can cause a rapid drop in blood sugar, which can lead to hunger.
1. Fruit juice: The fiber is stripped out in processing. So with no fat or protein, but lots of sugar, juice causes a quick rise in blood sugar then a quick drop leading to hunger.
2. Yogurt: Some types are high in sugar and all types require very little chewing. Chewing helps make people feel full. Greek yogurt is better because it is higher in protein, promoting more satisfaction. Add fresh fruit to provide fiber.
3. White pasta: Low in fiber and high in carbohydrates, pasta provides few vitamins while increasing blood sugar.
4. Chips/pretzels: These high-sodium snacks lead to dehydration. People make feel hungry later, but they may really be really thirsty.
5. Muffins: Sound healthy? Like pies and donuts, muffins break down quickly into sugar, which signals the body to release insulin, which lowers blood sugar. Then you feel hungry.
6. Alcohol: Lowers your inhibitions and makes you crave carbs.
