Are you someone who fights the urge to snack and eat meals throughout the day, even after eating?
The constant feeling of hunger can be triggering & difficult to navigate, and can even be detrimental to your wellbeing & relationship with food if not addressed.
Fear not, we are here to delve into some of the potential reasons for your perpetual hunger, and introduce you to a sustainable solution that avoids restrictive diets.
The role of hormones
The role of hormones hunger is not just a result of an empty stomach. It is a complex interplay of various hormones that regulate our appetite. Two key hormones, ghrelin and leptin, play a significant role in this process.
Ghrelin, often referred to as the "hunger hormone," stimulates appetite and is released when your stomach is empty. This hormone increases the sensation of hunger, making you more likely to eat. On the other hand, leptin, known as the "satiety hormone," signals to your brain that you are full and should stop eating.
However, some individuals, particularly if overweight, may have imbalances in these hormones, leading to increased hunger and overeating. That is why at Kurami, we design our meal plans to help stabilise these hormonal fluctuations, by providing balanced and nutrient-dense meals that help regulate your appetite over time.
Nutrient deficiency and cravings
When your body lacks essential vitamins, minerals, and macronutrients, it can trigger cravings as your body seeks out the nutrients it's missing. This can lead to a cycle of overeating as you try to satisfy these cravings. This is particularly common in dieting, when your list of “safe meals” is short and bland, never satisfying you or your body. Kurami meal plans are carefully crafted to provide a wide range of nutrients your body needs, reducing the likelihood of cravings and promoting a feeling of fullness.
Blood sugar fluctuations
Consuming meals high in refined carbohydrates & sugars can lead to rapid spikes and crashes in blood sugar levels. These fluctuations can cause intense hunger shortly after eating and can contribute to a cycle of overeating.
Kurami meal paths prioritise whole, complex carbohydrates, lean proteins, and healthy fats to help stabilise blood sugar levels, providing sustained energy and reducing the likelihood of constant hunger. We have worked tirelessly to develop more savoury breakfast and improve our sweet breakfast composition, so you can start each day with stable blood sugar levels.
Mindful Eating & Portion Control
Mindful eating involves paying attention to the sensations of eating, such as taste, texture, and fullness. Over time, poor eating habits and mindless snacking can desensitise your body to these signals, leading to overeating and persistent hunger. This is particularly common nowadays, when lunch is eaten at a work desk or even during an online meeting, driving, scrolling or watching tv.
Our meal plans encourage mindful eating by providing portion-controlled and well-balanced meals, allowing you to reconnect with your body's natural hunger and fullness cues.
