Controlling and ending chronic pain and fighting hunger pangs at the same time
How do you reduce your intake and portion sizes? Especially when you’re always hungry? It seems impossible. It’s possible. Learning what foods your body needs will ease your hunger pangs as well as your overall girth. Staying flexible will be a side benefit as well as healing any digestive issues you may have.
Learning which foods will keep you from always being hungry and eating the foods that fuel your empty food spots will help you feel full. By feeling confident that you are providing your body with the nutrients it needs, you can continue to age with confidence.
As we age, we will lose muscle mass, even when we exercise. Cutting back on food and eating less protein will protect the colon from impact that causes pain. This means cutting out all unnecessary processed foods and white foods such as bread, pasta, biscuits, snacks and white flour, white rice and white potatoes. This prevents us from eating more protein for balance. Balance for everyone means finding your most effective fat-burning ratio of protein to low glycemic carbs and high fiber to fat.
Learning what ratio your body can eat will make you lose excess body fat. You’ll feel better and look better. Eating low-glycemic, high-fiber carbohydrates, rather than crackers, bread, and noodles, will give your body the energy it needs to help with excess body fat loss.
Plus, finding your best proteins will keep your digestion running smoothly. Grass-fed varieties will also support your aging body with more nutrients. Having the energy to do the things you love.
As you move through middle age and into old age, you may find that you are not as hungry and can choose when to eat. You can always know what to eat next if you know the last food you ate. If it was protein and you’re still hungry, you’ll find that low-glycemic, high-fiber carbohydrates will help you feel full. There are friends of mine that I have helped and the Facebook group also recommends eating protein with vegetables and some fat. Also, eating protein with vegetables will help prevent kidney stones.
Avoiding foods you avoid will also help prevent kidney stones. Learning what foods your body needs will do many things for you at once. It will give your body the nutrients it needs. Give you the energy you may be lacking and solve your IBS problems at the same time.
Change makes the body happy sometimes and sometimes not so much. Sticking to the process will help you find your best health through a step-by-step process.
As an example, here are the breakfast changes I made while going through menopause — comment on a Facebook page: Yogurt is actually avoided on the computer generated genotype list, but we are working through the process and trying everything… EVERYTHING to not you are hungry I tried eggs and was hungry so I added a Clif bar. This worked for a short time. I tried sugary yogurt and oats, and quinoa with steel cut oats, and rolled oats, and it didn’t feel right. (Back then, sugar gave me excess gas). I tried eggs with cabbage as an omelette and was still not satisfied. So… I tried just processed amaranth flakes and Cheerios and fruit, with almond milk and that worked for a while. (Fruit sugars are fine for some) Then I had to add more protein so since eggs didn’t work I tried thick greek yogurt and so far it’s working. My goal was to be able to last 4 hours. And to be able to poop daily. And twice a day.
For me, it didn’t hurt to find the nutrients my body needed and not be constipated. Too much digested food causes pain.
Finding your best foods can be a process. Don’t be afraid to experiment and try new things or combinations. Oatmeal Quinoa Breakfast Recipe is under Wheat Alternatives with Bread Video.
