Friday- Health Tip Snacking
“Learn to listen to your body and let yourself get truly hungry so you can understand what hunger actually feels like,” says Dr. Janet Brill, nutrition expert and author of Cholesterol Down and Prevent a Second Heart Attack.Hunger is often a deceptive reaction triggered by external factors—like emotions—often leading us to eat when we’re not really hungry. “People, especially women, emotionally eat—they eat because they are angry, bored, tired,” Brill said. “That is emotional eating and that is why so many people are overweight, which increases your risk for heart disease.”
Before you bite, start with a glass of water and revaluate where your hunger pains are coming from. If water did the trick and you feel your hunger receding, wait an hour or two before making your way back to the kitchen. Still hungry? Grab a heart-healthy snack like an apple or fresh veggies dipped in hummus.
The beat goes on!
