Foods That Make You HUNGRIER
Foods That Make You HUNGRIER

Did you know that some foods can actually make you feel HUNGRIER when you eat them?

Here are the foods that ABC News says to watch out for:

White bread  It makes your insulin levels go up which can make your body think it needs more sugar.

Fruit juice  It’s so sugary that it causes a sugar spike in your blood and then a hard crash afterwards.

Salty snacks  A lot of times your body will compensate by craving something sweet.

Fast food  It’s so salty you can get dehydrated and sometimes that can cause stomach pain that feels like a hunger pang.

Alcohol  It tends to reduce levels of leptin, a hormone that makes you feel full and it can deplete your body’s energy reserves, so you crave carbs.

White pasta  It’s so full of carbs that it can cause insulin spikes and those can make you feel hungry, just like with white bread.

MSG  It messes with your hypothalamus and causes big increases in your appetite.  (Now you know why they serve Chinese food by buffet!)

Sushi  It’s mainly white rice so it has the same effect as bread or pasta.

Artificial sweeteners  They make your body think it’s about to get something it can use for energy but they have no calories, so then you just crave sweets.

Kids cereals  They’re so high in sugar that they can cause spikes and drops in insulin and blood sugar levels throughout the day.

Pizza  It messes with your hormones, your blood sugar levels…everything.  It’s because everything in a pizza is processed.  If you made a pizza from scratch with fresh toppings and whole wheat dough, you’d be all right.

Guess we’ve got some grocery shopping to do!
