Making good decisions for our health isn’t always easy. At times it seems like the harder we try, the more barriers we come up against that prevent us from accomplishing our goals.

One foe that is particularly difficult to beat is hunger. Most of us understand the importance of nutrition and good eating habits on overall health, but that knowledge starts to feel irrelevant when hunger strikes.

And it’s not entirely our fault, either. Appetite is regulated, in part, by hormones, which tell us when, what, and how much to eat—and they don’t always steer us in the direction of wholesome salads.

What we eat, and when we eat, also matters. Fortunately, these are factors that are under our control, and they make a big difference. There are a few things we can do to make it easier to manage hunger and keep cravings under control.

3 macronutrients for satiety

If you want to spend less time feeling hungry, the answer isn’t necessarily to eat more. Making sure you’re filling up on the right foods is the first step.

Fiber, protein, and healthy fats are three dietary components that play a significant role in promoting satiety, which helps ensure you won’t be ravenously hungry again a few hours after you eat. They also have less of an impact on your blood sugar levels than simple carbohydrates do, which means you are less likely to hit an energy crash later.

  • Fiber, found in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, adds bulk to your meals, slowing down digestion and helping you feel full for longer.
  • Protein is found in a variety of sources, including  meat, legumes, vegetables, and dairy products. In addition to building and repairing tissues in the body, protein also triggers the release of hormones that signal fullness to the brain.
  • Healthy fats, like those found in avocados, nuts, and olive oil, slow down the emptying of the stomach and enhance the flavor of meals, making them more satisfying and satiating.

Foods containing high amounts of these macronutrients take longer to digest than simple sugars, which are found in a lot of high-carb and processed foods. This is a huge plus if you want to spend less time feeling hungry.

How Unicity Balance helps suppress appetite

Eating the right foods can do wonders for your mood, energy levels, and overall health. But even with these benefits as motivation, it can be difficult to follow healthy guidelines all the time. Sometimes, we need a little extra help.

This is where Unicity Balance comes in. A key ingredient in Balance is viscous soluble fiber. This type of fiber forms a thick gel when combined with water. As it moves through the digestive tract, the gel-like consistency helps slow the emptying of your stomach, which results in prolonged satiety. (Learn more about the ingredients in Balance here.)

Furthermore, Balance is an easy way to get more fiber in your diet, something most of us don’t get enough of. Fiber supports digestive health, promotes satiety, and helps lessen the impact excess dietary carbohydrates and cholesterol have on the body. This is what makes Balance so handy in a world full of quick fixes for hunger—it helps keep your body well-maintained, even if you don’t follow a perfect diet, so hunger and cravings don’t rule your life.

Break your nightly snacking habit

Our best intentions often go out the window when the craving for after-dinner snacks sets in, but Balance can help with this too. Because it helps reduce carbohydrate absorption in the body, Balance supports normal, healthy blood glucose levels. Without constant blood glucose spikes, not only do you have steadier energy levels throughout the day, but the cravings may start to subside too. That, combined with Balance’s ability to help you feel fuller for longer, helps you reign in late-night snacking, allowing your body to take a break from digesting food for a while and focus on supporting your health in other ways.

To get the full benefits of Balance, mix with 8–10 oz. of water and drink before or with your largest meal(s) of the day. Taking Balance with dinner is especially important if you plan on not eating again until the next day, or if you simply want to cut down on snacking late at night.
