I’m almost done with my first pound of Chia seeds. I have to say, I’m completely impressed with how well they help to curb my appetite.
I’m a girl that could eat all day. As a former member of the fat girls club, there are still some bad habits that I haven’t been able to completely shake. Like eating when I’m bored, stressed or sad. I had done really well with turning to exercise to work past those moments, but now that I don’t work from home anymore, it’s hard to be able to just go for a run when I’m feeling stressed or pissy. So now, I just try to keep any “snack” like foods. I have barely any good in my house. If its there, I’ll eat it even if I’m not hungry. I know, it’s terrible!
The month of March is going to be a challenge for me. I’m embarking on a challenge of no soda, no sweets of any kind (even those made of healthy things – I need to break the cycle!) and a rigorous workout regiment. I need to not only change the foods I’m eating but also cut back on how much I eat. This is where the Chia seeds are going to come into play!
I’ve made them the first part of any meal. This way I’m already feeling a little full before I start eating so I won’t eat as much. Getting accustomed to smaller meals is going to be a challenge but it certainly is not impossible!
I strongly recommend Chia seeds if you’re looking to curb your appetite! They’re not cheap but worth every penny. Like I said in a previous post, I simply pour the scoop into my mouth and take a swig of water to wash them down. I can’t let them become jelly like first and then eat them. It grosses me out lol but to each their own!!
