11 foods that make you hungrier

first_img Share Share Tweet 209 Views   no discussions Sharecenter_img Sharing is caring! Food & DiningLifestyle 11 foods that make you hungrier by: – August 18, 2014 Do you ever get the feeling that your stomach’s a bottomless pit? These foods might actually be the problem.Feeling hungry? You should eat. But what if the foods you’re eating actually make you hungrier than you were before you dug in? It’s a more common conundrum than you might think. “Hunger is a result of many complex interactions that occur in the stomach, intestines, brain, pancreas, and bloodstream,” says weight-loss specialist and board-certified internist Sue Decotiis, MD. Problem is, it’s a circuit that’s easily hijacked. Here are 11 foods that can make you feel like you’re running on empty—even when your stomach is stuffed.White breadThe white flour used to bake white bread has been stripped of its outer shell (the bran), which depletes the grain’s feel-full fiber content. Eating it spikes your insulin levels, Dr. Decotiis says.In a recent Spanish study, researchers tracked the eating habits and weights of more than 9,000 people and found that those who ate two or more servings of white bread a day were 40% more likely to become overweight or obese over a five-year period compared to those who ate less of it.JuicesJuicing is all the rage, but these “healthy” drinks contain all the sugar of your favorite fruit, but none of the fiber-containing pulp or skin. That means drinking a glass of juice can shoot your blood sugar levels up—and then back down again—bringing on hunger, according to Mitzi Dulan, RD, author of The Pinterest Diet: How to Pin Your Way Thin. Your better bet: blend a smoothie using whole fruit instead, and mix in a scoop of protein powder or nut butter to help balance your blood sugar and boost satiety. (Just be sure to steer clear of sugary fro-yo or sherbet.)Salty snacksThere’s a reason why you crave something sweet after polishing off a bag of potato chips. Chips, pretzels, and salty snack mixes are little more than quick-digesting simple carbs, which can spur insulin highs and subsequent lows, Dulan says. And since your taste buds and brain link fast-acting energy with sweet foods, it’s common to have a craving for something sweet once you finish your salty nosh. What’s more, thanks to a phenomenon known as sensory specific satiety, you can fill up on chips and feel like only your salty stomach is full. Your sweet one can still feel empty, Dulan says. So get ready to eat two stomachs’ worth of food.Fast foodPretty much every ingredient behind a fast food counter is designed to make you supersize your meal. For instance, trans fat inflames the gut, potentially impairing the body’s ability to produce appetite-controlling neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin, Dr. Decotiis says. Meanwhile, the GI tract absorbs high fructose corn syrup (commonly found in buns, condiments, and desserts) quickly, causing insulin spikes and even bigger hunger pangs. Lastly, fast food’s huge helpings of salt can spur dehydration. And with symptoms that closely mimic those of hunger, it’s easy for dehydration to trick you into thinking you need to go back for seconds.AlcoholAlcohol doesn’t just lower your healthy-eating resolve, it downright makes you hungrier: According to research published in Alcohol & Alcoholism, just three servings can slash your body’s levels of leptin—a hormone designed to squash hunger and keep you feeling full—by 30%. “Alcohol can also deplete your body’s carbohydrate stores (called glycogen), causing you to crave carbs in order to replace what was lost,” Dr. Decotiis says. And if you find yourself craving salty snacks, dehydration and a loss of electrolytes may be at work.White pastaWhite pasta packs all of the same problems as white bread, but it does deserve its own mention as a hunger-offender because it’s so easy to eat far too much of it. A standard serving size of cooked pasta is just half a cup cooked, but restaurants regularly serve up four cups in a single entrée. When you overload your body with simple carbs, your pancreas goes into overdrive churning out insulin, and soon you’ve produced so much of the sugar-managing hormone that your blood sugar levels are low and you’re ravenously hungry. And consider this: What are you pouring over your pasta? If it’s a store-bought sauce, then it probably contains even more hunger-spiking sugar.MSGMSG (aka monosodium glutamate) is a flavor-enhancer best known for being added to Chinese food, and may also be found in other foods including canned veggies, soups, processed meats, and even beer and ice cream. One animal study from Spanish researchers suggests the chemical triggers a 40% increase in appetite, and according to research published in the journal Obesity, people who consume the most MSG are nearly three times more likely to be overweight than those who don’t eat it at all. “The effects of leptin (a “satiety hormone” made by fat cells) may be blunted by the damaging effects of MSG on the hypothalamus,” Dr. Decotiis says. What’s more, the effects can compound over time, so the more frequently you eat MSG, the more you’ll eat, period.Sushi rollsYou might intend to load up on good-for-you fish, but you’re really eating more rice than anything else, says dietitian Susan M. Kleiner, RD, PhD, a scientific consultant with USANA Health Sciences. Case in point: the California roll. Loaded with 30-plus grams of carbohydrates, it’s like eating three slices of white bread. “If you don’t eat anything else, sushi rolls are fairly rapidly digested and emptied from the stomach without a high level of satiating properties like fiber or protein,” she says.Artificial sweetenersWhether they are in your diet soda or sprinkled in your coffee, artificial sweeteners (aspartame, sucralose, saccharin, and others) excite your brain cells, making them think they are about to get a sweet serving of energy (aka calories), and then let them down—hard, Dr. Decotiis says. The upshot: You may crave—and eat—more sweets throughout the day, trying to make up for the letdown. Over time, this process can actually affect the hunger control centers of the brain, she says. And get this: It has been proposed that artificial sweeteners cause insulin spikes just like real, calorie-packed sugar.Kids’ cerealswith a generous dusting of table sugar, these morning starters may cause blood sugar and insulin swings. “Eating such a high carbohydrate load in the morning when cortisol levels are at their highest is a double assault to your metabolism,” Dr. Decotiis says. During the night and into the morning, your body pumps out huge amounts of cortisol, which is believed to be a natural part of your body readying itself for the stresses of the day ahead. “Higher cortisol levels mean a lower ability to metabolize ingested sugars. Therefore blood sugar may be high, but still not reach the tissues where it is needed, leading to fatigue and hunger.” Cereal can be a smart way to start your day—look for whole grain or bran cereals that contain at least 5 grams of fiber and less than 5 grams of sugar per serving.PizzaYou know you can’t eat just one slice—no matter how big it is. That’s because your favorite pizza joint’s combination of white flour dough, hydrogenated oils, processed cheeses, and preservatives can throw off your blood sugar levels, production of satiety hormones, and hunger-regulating regions of the brain, according to Dr. Decotiis. That said, if you make pizza at home with whole-wheat dough and top it with lean meat, lots of veggies, and just a sprinkling of cheese, then you’ll have a fiber- and protein-packed meal that’s less likely to have you reaching for more food in an hour.Healthyliving.msnlast_img read more

Palos plot on Tusker downfall in GOtv Shield

first_imgPalos head coach Hezbon Nyabinge will be taking charge of his fifth match with the second tier club since taking over after leaving his deputy coaching role at Western Stima and he hopes he can keep his record intact.“Tusker is a tough team because if you look at their form despite losing last weekend, they are up there in the KPL table. They are the defending champions of this tournament and they want to retain it, which makes that game even tougher,” Nyabinge revealed.“However, we know what we can do as a team and we have trained well for this kind of game. We want to go there and be competitive, push Tusker to the edge and hopefully get a win to progress to the next round,” he added.Palos FC players pose for a group photo.PHOTO/FILENyabinge has not lost since taking over at the team in May, winning against MOSCA before back-to-back draws against Bidco United and Vihiga United. They also won 4-1 against Griffin’s in the GOtv Shield round of 32.However, Tusker are more than determined to defend the title and their statement of intent was loud and clear when they beat Mombasa based SS Assad 9-1 in the first round match. Against Palos, head coach George ‘Best’ Nsimbe is taking no chances.“Knockout games are tricky and we can’t underrate anyone. We expect this match to be as tough as it has been against any other Premier League opponents. But we know our ambition as a team is to defend the title and we will work to do so,” the Ugandan coach offered.He has also hinted the possibility of rotating the squad to give players who have not had much of playing time in the league an opportunity to pick the much required match fitness.– Other fixtures-Gor Mahia Meddie Kagere celebrates with Timothy Otieno.PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaIn other top ties this weekend, Kenyan Premier League (KPL) giants Gor Mahia will be hoping for a perfect send off to their historic tie against English Premier League side Everton FC in Tanzania when they host Bandari FC at the Thika Sub-County Stadium.K’Ogalo stand-in coach Zedekiah ‘Zico’ Otieno will have his final say as the team boss with newly appointed head coach Dylan Kerr set to arrive in the country just a day before, but will most likely sit at the terraces and watch his new charges in action.Gor, who last won the Shield in 2012, are under pressure to perform with their results in the league also bringing some unease amongst their supporters. K’Ogalo lost 2-0 to Sofapaka in Meru before drawing 2-2 with Ulinzi Stars last weekend, results that have upped pressure on their shoulders.Bandari on their side, winners of the tournament in 2015 are hoping for their second ever title while head coach Paul Nkata will be seeking to win it for the second time in a row, with a different team.The two sides have already met in the league with Gor winning 2-1, but Bandari have vowed to dig deep and revenge.Ulinzi Stars striker Stephen Waruru celebrates his second goal with team mates Geoffrey Kokoyo and Brian Birgen against Mathare United in a Kenyan Premier league match at the Afraha Stadium on April 23, 2017.PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluElsewhere, Ulinzi Stars will face Sony Sugar for the second time in less than a month in the other second round tie clashing KPL teams. The result when they last met was 1-1, but the military side who reached the final last year will be going all out for victory.Head coach Benjamin Nyangweso will hope the team will pick up from where they left off in the second half of their last meeting, but wary that the Sugar Millers pose a huge threat to their ambition.“Sony is a good team and they showed that with their performance last time we met. We however, have an ambition to go all the way and win this title and we will give it our all,” Nyangweso said.GOtv Shield round of 32 fixturesSaturday: Zetech v Kakamega Homeboyz (2 p.m.), AFC Leopards v Nairobi Stima (Mumias Complex, 4 p.m.), Mwatate United v Butterfly FC (Wundanyi Stadium, Voi), Kenpoly v Kariobangi Sharks (2 p.m.), Nakumatt v Modern Coast (Kenyatta Stadium, Machakos 4 p.m.), Ulinzi Stars v Sony Sugar (Afraha Stadium), Coast Stima v Nzoia Sugar (Mbaraki Complex), Karatina Homeboyz v GFE 105 (2 p.m.), Sofapaka v Western Stima (Thika Sub-County Stadium, 4 p.m.).Sunday: Young Divers v Eldoret Youth (Mbaraki Complex), Wazito v KCB (2 p.m.), Ushuru v Vihiga United (Camp Toyoyo 4 p.m.), Bidco FC v Rainforest (2 p.m.), Gor Mahia v Bandari, (Thika Sub County Stadium 4 p.m.), Taqwa v Savannah (2 p.m.), Tusker v Palos (Kinoru Stadium Meru 4 p.m.).0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Tusker players after Sofapaka match.PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaNAIROBI, Kenya, Jul 7 – Seventh placed National Super League side Palos FC will hope to add more misery on wounded defending champions Tusker FC when the two sides lock horns in the second round of the GOtv Shield on Sunday at the Kinoru Stadium in Meru.Tusker saw their eight-match unbeaten run checked last weekend after losing 1-0 to Bandari at the same venue and Palos now hope they can replicate the Dockers’ performance and also leave Meru with a victory.last_img read more

Bavarian ticket

first_imgIt might cost the same as a Honda, and nearly the same as a Toyota and even a Chevrolet for that matter, but there’s no denying that it still commands higher snob value. That’s because the vehicle in contention is a BMW. It’s called the X1 and is the younger sibling of the X5 and X3 range of SAVs from the Bavarian carmaker. It comes at a price tag of Rs. 22 lakh, but is still an entry ticket into the luxury circle.BMW has launched the X1 in three versions; the cheapest is powered by a 2-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine and there’s a 2-litre diesel to be had as well. But, the one we are reviewing costs over Rs. 33 lakh on the road.It is the X1 Exclusive, powered by the aforementioned diesel engine, but packed with more features. There’s the new generation iDrive, a sunroof, better headlamps (projector-type xenon lamps to be precise), headlamp washer and the complete communication package. It includes, among other things, Bluetooth connectivity, iPod and USB compatibility, sat-nav and a 6 CD-changer stereo system. This info, however, is easily available on the company website. The moot question then is–does it feel and drive like a BMW? It surely looks like one with its kidney grille, the corona rings for headlamps and its pronounced belt line and flame surfacing. But, it’s not good looking. There’s something odd about the X1’s long hood and low stance; it looks mismatched. It looks nice from the rear quarters, and the interior design is different (and refreshing, thankfully!) from what we have seen on other BMWs on Indian roads, though the X1 still mostly uses the same buttons, dials and knobs that underscore its Bavarian roots.The X1 is a BMW in the way it drives too. It brakes phenomenally well and is stable in a straight line, no matter what speed. It turns in with alertness and gives the driver feedback about what the wheels and the chassis are up to around bends. When you indulge the X1 by stepping on the gas mid-corner, the throttle and the steering work beautifully. Even with the stability programme switched off, you are always in good hands. The moment you get off the throttle completely in a slide, the stability programme kicks in with alacrity. Ride quality, however, continues to be a BMW India problem. Constantly facing the stick for its stiff ride, BMW has made some changes here. The suspension has been modified in a way as to make it less stiff and more pliant on Indian roads. Dampers have been softened up and the runflat tyres also add to the improved ride quality. To sum up, X1 is a well put-together automobile with fairly good looks and interiors, and impressive driving dynamics. Don’t mistake it as replacement for a full-sized SUV. This BMW is surely a style statement, and a good one at that.Price: Rs. 33.7 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi Hero Honda hunk 150 ccThe Hero Honda Hunk is back in a new avatar, with that sports blacked-out cycle parts and silencer guard. Also new are the front fender and visor, LED tail lamps, which lend more character to the rear end, and a new set of clocks–the latter being a combination of analogue (fuel gauge and tachometer) and digital counters (speedo, odo and tripmeter). Get astride the new Hunk and you will find the riding position comfortable, despite the slightly rearset footpegs. All switches are within easy reach of the thumbs but the switchgear itself does not feel crisp, even though the switches are light and therefore easy to operate. And, an engine kill switch is still missing. To ride, the Hunk is a quick motorcycle that gets up to speed quite quickly, courtesy a torquey engine. What mars it somewhat are engine vibrations that can be felt even at revs as low as 3,000 rpm and a gearbox that is clunky. The addition of a rear disc helps a little when it comes to stopping but the Hunk’s brakes feel mushy.The new Hero Honda Hunk is a good motorcycle; it is comfortable yet reasonably sporty with a punchy engine. The makers have given its looks the right tweaks. All it needs now are a slicker gearbox, better quality switches and of course, an engine kill switch.
