1) Eat less calorie dense foods
It’s no surprise that most coaches will recommend vegetables as they offer the least amount of calories gram for gram compared to many other foods. As you can essentially eat more volume, you’ll fill your stomach before which will improve satiety.
2) Stay hydrated
Hunger cues can sometimes be triggered through a lack of hydrationas opposed to lack of food. Try to aim for at least 2 litres of water a day, with an additional litre for every hour of training. If you’re struggling to get it in, buy a 2 litre bottle, fill it with water and make sure to finish it every day.
3) Keep busy
Are you hungry or are you just bored? This is a very common complaint, particularly from office workers. Find something to occupy your brain to take your mind off eating.Find a new hobby or other distraction which requires yourfull attention.
4) Increase your fibre intake
Soluble fibre in particularly slows down the digestion of food which can help you feel fuller for longer. Dark leafy vegetables, beans and lentils, oats, potatoes and other root vegetables are all high in fibre as well as offering a lot of volume for the calories.
