Winters and good food are synonymous to each other. The urge of bingeing on greasy foods increases in winters, thanks to the dip in temperature levels. Hence, it gets a bit difficult to stick to weight loss plans during this time of the year. If you wish to meet your weight loss goals, it is imperative to keep a check on your cravings as giving into your cravings quite often would only add to the calorie load. In winters, our body temperature takes a dip, which makes our body switch to starvation mode, making us feel to eat more in order to stay warm and active. To help keep cravings at bay, you can add certain foods in your diet that are quite filling, thanks to their protein content.
Here is a list of 3 such protein-rich filling foods that can help you in achieving your weight loss goals:
When it comes to weight loss, what we eat can make or break the deal. One food item that may help boost weight loss to a great extent is oatmeal. Its high protein and fibre content help keep you satiated for long, further preventing untimely cravings. Oats contain soluble fibre that tends to absorb water in the stomach and forms a gel-like substance, which helps you remain full for a considerable time.
