    Why does it seem like as soon as you start to eat better and lose a few pounds, someone somewhere comes along to sabotage your efforts? America Now Wellness Expert Peggy Hall explains why people who previously couldn't care less about what you were eating are suddenly pushing food at you right and left!

If you can't stand that gnawing feeling in your tummy, what can you do besides reach for a snack?

America Now Wellness Expert Peggy Hall shares her top tips on staying full in between meals:

1. Instead of eating smaller "mini-meals" throughout the day, as advocated by popular diet gurus these days, Peggy recommends going back to the basics and eating just three times a day.

"Eating enough to be satisfied at breakfast, lunch and dinner helps keep the hunger hormones at bay," Peggy explains. "Constant grazing or snacking throughout the day keeps levels of insulin raised, and that can lead to tummy grumbling."
 
2. Include a portion of protein and healthy fat with each meal. Together, these macro-nutrients turn off the hunger hormone ghrelin and increases the hormone leptin, which helps you fee you feel satisfied.

3. Eat or drink something warm with each meal, like cooked cereal, scrambled eggs, soup or casserole.

"Warm foods have more staying power and take longer to digest," Peggy says.

4. Drink hot tea in between meals. Hot liquids take a longer time to empty from your tummy, giving you a satisfied feeling longer.

"When your tummy feels full, you're less likely to snack on extra calories between meals," Peggy says.
