          Foods That May Make You Hungry

          January 05, 2015

          In his new book, The 20/20 Diet: Turn Your Weight Loss Vision into Reality, Dr. Phil highlights some common foods that may make you hungry:

          Did you know there are foods (probably many of which you eat on a regular basis) that can actually make you feel hungrier and experience more cravings?

          They affect your brain and production of certain hunger hormones so that you constantly want more, more, more — they literally drive your hunger.

          Beware these potential hunger-inducing food traps:

          • Regular and diet sodas
          • Concentrated sweeteners, including artificial sugars and sugar alcohols (closely check labels for such words as aspartame, sucralose, polydextrose, xylitol, lactitol, mannitol, maltitol syrup, and neotame)
          • White bread, pasta, and other starches made with white flour
          • Sugary cereals
          • Alcohol
          • Processed meats (like hot dogs, bacon, and cold cuts)
          • Fast food
          • French fries and fried chips

          You might not have realized that these foods can make you feel hungrier and cause you to eat more, but now that
          you know, you can make a concerted effort to avoid them so they can’t derail you.
