News Highlights

  • Low-calorie foods have hidden sugar that can trigger hunger pangs very quickly.
  • Fruit juices and breakfast cereals also trigger hunger pangs as they have less fiber and more sugar.

Weight Watchers are always looking for foods that keep them fuller for a long time so that they eat less and consume fewer calories. More often you choose foods that are healthy, full of fibers and nutrients to lose weight and remain fit.

However, there are certain foods that come under the list of healthy foods but have a tendency to trigger hunger pangs and thus make you eat more than required.

White rice

White rice is a part of the staple diet in most of the states in the country. Various dishes made from white rice including pulav and biryani are eaten with relish in almost every Indian household. However, apart from being highly processed and refined, white rice also is high in carbohydrates and starch which is why there is an immediate spike in blood sugar levels and a sudden drop making you feel hungry faster.

Egg whites

Most people on a diet prefer to skip egg yolk and only consume egg whites for increasing their protein intake. However, when you skip egg yolk you feel hungry much quicker and are more likely to eat dishes that are not good for health.

Fruit juice

Fruit juices are considered extremely healthy. Do you remember how every rich household from the movies has a jar of juice on their dining table? But in reality, it is better to eat fruits than drink fruit juices because when you make juice the fiber and flesh are lost, and as a result, you do not feel satiated.

Naturally, you start feeling hungry after some time.

Breakfast cereals

For working women, quick-fix breakfast cereals are just perfect to save time. Most of their packaging also promotes that they are rich in fibers and all the vital nutrients. However, they are loaded with lots of sugar and preservatives that tend to trigger hunger pangs after a short time.

Low-fat Yogurt

Low-fat yogurt from the shelf can be rich in prebiotics or probiotics but they also have lots of sugar which triggers hunger pangs very fast.
