This blog should not be interpreted as medical advice. If you struggle with your appetite on a daily occurrence, consult your physician immediately.
Eat Smaller Meals
If you struggle with consuming three full meals per day, you may find eating smaller meals (five to six times per day) more helpful. Eating smaller meals will keep your metabolism stable, which may help maintain a steady appetite.
Make sure the meals you eat are nutrient-packed foods with high fiber. Overall, avoid any processed foods and stick with high-calorie natural foods, such as avocado, milk, red meat, fruit, nuts, and starches. These types of foods will give you the energy and nutrients you need to have a properly functioning body.
Cut Out Sugary Drinks
A common ingredient in soda is a type of sugar called sucrose. This sugar tricks your mind into feeling full, which could be preventing you from feeling hungry. Beyond messing with your appetite, it can mess with your hormones, mouth problems and cause other negative effects. For a healthy diet, it is best to avoid sugary sodas and beverages that contain sucrose.
Some people eat in silence with few distractions, which is good if your goal is to eat less. However, if you are trying to increase the amount of food you are eating, keep your mind occupied. While eating your next meal, watch a show or chat with some friends to distract yourself, so you can eat more than you are accustomed to.
For years, people have used teas and cannabinoids as methods to urge a hungry stomach. Enjoying a cup of fennel or chamomile tea are easy remedies to help curb low-hunger, but some have found hemp-derived cannabinoids to be helpful as well.
Delta 8 has been reported to improve appetite and offer an uplifting experience. Although there are no guarantees, you may find cannabinoids useful.
Many factors can be affecting your appetite, but making simple changes to your lifestyle may encourage hunger. Try these few tips, and find which ones work best for you. If you feel that your low appetite is abnormal or has been occurring longer than a few days, you should contact your physician immediately.
