Carbohydrates such as bread and grains as well as sugars play havoc on blood sugar levels, and in turn, cause appetite cravings that ensue. Sugar makes our hormones become out of balance and also cause spikes and drops in blood glucose levels. These wild swings can cause more cravings to occur as the body looks for ways to create a source of energy for your body.
Carbohydrates are converted to sugar quickly and therefore cause the same reaction from the body. However, there are some good carbs which are healthy and fall low on the glycemic index, meaning they will not cause a large spike in blood sugar, such as:
- Good Carbs from nuts, seeds, almond flour, and coconut flour
- Fruits (Certain ones in small amounts)
Another thing that may come as a shock to you is that some fats can actually help to curb your appetite. That’s right, scientific research has found that some fats can actually help to curb hunger and reduce food cravings. This doesn’t mean that you can eat cheeseburger and French fries drenched in vegetable oil; however, if you choose the right fats your body can actually benefit from fat consumption.
This is because fats can trigger the production of specific compounds within the body that send the brain a signal that you are full. Oleic acid is a fatty acid which comes from specific fats. This fatty acid is then absorbed into your body’s’ nerve endings which in turn send a message to the brain that you are full.
