It doesn’t matter how much you fill up on certain foods, you never seem to feel satiated. Iíve learned over the years that whole foods fill you up and processed, junk foods can bring on the pangs of hunger as if you didnít eat anything at all. This results from the fact that much of the nutrient density is depleted in processing.
And no matter how much your will power attempts to hold strong, certain foods are addictive. No matter how bad they make you feel, you just canít stop. I mean you could stop, itís not like youíre tied to the kitchen table being force-fed, but you get my drift.
What are these foods? What foods should you avoid when you’re trying to get the most for your hunger buck?
1. Chewing Gum
Chewing gum stimulates the gastric juices, producing saliva. According to Faddiets.com the saliva that is produced while chewing goes down to the stomach and fools the stomach into thinking there is food to be digested, making you hungrier.
