The Scientific Reason Why You Still Feel Hungry After You Eat

One little ingredient in food can throw you diet completely off-balance and land you in a of junk food cravings and weight gain vortex. The ingredient is processed fructose. Not just sugar, but a specific compound within sugar. Fructose can increase your cravings for burgers, pizza, cookies and cake throughout the day, even after you eat. Making simple sugar swaps is a smart way to cut down these intense yearnings for junk and start eating healthier. Swap #1: Processed fruit drinks for water If you love flavour and hate the boring nothingness of a glass of water, add in some lemon and lime or orange slices! Swap #2: Sweetened coffee and tea for unsweetened Start slowly by simply reducing the amount of sugar you put in your favourite drink each week. Swap 3 lumps for 2, and carry on until you can drink it with no lumps. Your tastebuds will adjust accordingly. Swap #3: Sweet yogurt for plain The sugar content in yogurt can surprise you, even if it doesn't taste that sweet. Buy plain and add in fresh or frozen fruit, honey, agave or anything you like that makes it sweet and flavourful. Fructose occurs naturally in fruit, and that type is okay to eat! It is only when fructose is chemically manufactured and added into foods at staggering rates that we get crippling food cravings.
