🧡🍎☕️Slow down – Chew – Enjoy and reach your goals! Did you know that your stomach can hold up to 4 liters of volume? However, the feeling of satiety is not caused by your stomach being full, but a result of your brain reacting to chemicals released when you put food or drink in your stomach. Your brain 🧠 takes around 20 minutes to register these chemicals. After you eat, the levels continue to rise over 10 to 30 minutes and stay elevated for three to five hours following the meal, keeping you sated. As the chemical 🧬 levels fall, the feeling of hunger returns. If you do not feel full directly after you eat, wait, as the level of chemicals increases, your hunger will dissipate.
🍎☕️You might know by now that I care about the presentation. I am a huge believer that we eat with the eyes 👀 first! Of course Sometimes it is way easier to just grab an apple and devour in 2 minutes! However if you take some time for yourself and your snack, you may yourself enjoying your snacks even more, and will give some time for your body sends signals to my brain that it is enough.
🙎🏻♀️I can hear some of you saying, “meeehhh it takes so much of my time”! BUT! You are worth having a nice presentation and YOUR BODY is worth it to be in it’s healthier version of itself!🧡👉🏻If it helps you snacking less and hitting your calories and macros, it is time to sacrifice just a minute of your time to chop an apple.
Wishing you all an amazing day!
