Did you know that there are some foods and drinks that can make you even more hungry? Not at the moment, but it happens really soon after eating. Hunger is the result of a complex interaction between stomach, intestines, brain, pancreas and bloodstream. Well, these foods can give you a sense that you are hungry even though your stomach is full. So let’s get started.
At the moment while you are consuming alcohol, you are not feeling hungry, and you think that you are full. But after a while, you are actually feeling very hungry. This is because only three glasses of alcohol can reduce levels of leptin by 30 percent, and this is the hormone that controls hunger.
Chips, pretzels, and other salty snacks are fast carbohydrates that increase insulin levels, and then rapidly decrease. Because of the amount of salt you eat, you will have the impression that the stomach is full, and you actually are very hungry.
White flour that is used to make white bread is made from grains that have been removed from their skin. This reduces the ability of rice paddy you saturate. When you eat white bread, you are increasing the level of insulin, and in a very short amount of time, you feel hungry again.
The “healthy” juices that you buy from the grocery store, are actually not that healthy. They contain large amounts of sugar and no fiber at all. When you drink these juices, your blood sugar levels can rise and fall rapidly, so the hunger returns quickly. It is for the best to do it yourself, using a juicer.
White pasta acts just like white bread. But this is even more dangerous, because you can easily over eat them. You should eat a serving size of one cup because they rise a lot in the stomach and cause problems, but even portions in restaurants are larger than the recommended dose.
Almost every ingredient in the fast food stores, is made to make you wanna eat more. For example, over saturated fats cause inflammation in the gut, because that reduces the body’s ability to produce neurotransmitters that control appetite, such as dopamine and serotonin.
