How To Eat Well and Feel Full Every Time

One of my biggest fitness questions for Trainer Momma is how to eat well yet still feel full throughout the day?  I’m a busy mom and constantly on the go and I know that you are too.  So today Mandi is sharing her tips on healthy eating for busy women.

To quickly recap in case you’ve missed part of the series, we’ve already learned practical ways to get a good workout as well as tips on  how to eat well and get control of our health and today we’re taking it a step further with how to feel full while healthy eating!

Don’t you hate it when you eat breakfast and you are ravenous 30 minutes later? Or how about that intense, crazy 3:00 PM craving for chocolate that hits every day? Or when you get so desperately hungry you end up eating your toddler’s half eaten, left over graham crackers off the floor of the minivan?

Eating well does not have to equate to being hungry all the time nor being sentenced to eating cardboard-tasting fare for the rest of our lives. It’s just a little math.

All you need is the “Feel Full Formula”:  Protein + Fiber = FULL

If you make sure every single meal and snack you put in your mouth follows the Feel Full Formula you’ll step off the hunger roller coaster, take control of your appetite, and feel full throughout the day.

Here are some simple, winner food combos that all have protein and fiber in them:

Breakfast:
Oatmeal with berries and nuts
Whole grain cereal with almonds and a banana
Egg whites with salsa in a whole wheat tortilla

Mid-Morning Snack:
Almonds and an orange
Low-fat cottage cheese and a pear
Apple and peanut butter

Lunch:
Huge veggie packed salad with some lean protein
Lentil soup with some fruit
Albacore tuna with veggies in a whole grain wrap

Mid-Afternoon Snack:
Handful of trail mix and some grapes
Greek yogurt with some strawberries and nuts
Banana and a cup of soy milk

Dinner:
Grilled salmon, quinoa and asparagus
Brown rice with black beans, salsa, and cooked zucchini
Whole wheat pasta with a ton of broccoli, lean ground beef topped with marinara sauce

Trainer Momma Tip: With all of these meals/snacks, be sure to follow them up with a ton of water. Water tops us off, and is the world’s best appetite suppressant.

By eating plenty of protein and balancing it out with stomach filling fiber, your body will get the nutrients it needs and you’ll feel full every time.

Guaranteed.
