Food items such as apples contain a high percentage of air and when digested in the stomach, produces a hormone known as GLP-1. This hormone sends a satiety signal to the brain which means that your stomach is satisfied even when the amount eaten is less than what you normally eat.

Some of the most satiating food items include fruits, vegetables with protein rich items more useful than those which contain high levels of carbohydrates and fats.

A number of studies have proven that we eat 70 percent more than usual when being distracted, such as watching TV, sitting in front of computer or eating with friends.

Therefore, this has to be avoided in order to shed those unwanted pounds.
