Food addiction, hunger

I am always hungry and craving for food. I snack a lot. I try to buy less and lesser food and veggies when doing shopping. But when I see there is only vegetables in the fridge, I order food to my home. It's like I can't ever stay away from fast food like pizza, burgers, etc. I have tried salads but they don't seem to fill me. As a result I am gaining weight and a huge proportion of my salary is being spent on food itself! I try hard to listen to my stomach but my mind makes me eat a lot more. How can I solve this problem? How do I make salads, fruits and nuts feel tasty for me? Thanks in advance!

You need to concentrate and mediate. You think too much about your food which is ok to some extent I appreciate your concern about your health. Just some lifestyle modifications can help you a lot. Kindly consult me at http://ghkritediet.zest.md or leave a mail at ghk.ritediet@gmail Please don't get into self dieting at this age. The results can be irreversible. I believe in healthy weight loss through healthy lifestyle and regular physical activity plan.

Hello, you eat lot of vegetables especially fiber containing vegetables that satisfy satiety centre in the brain which is responsible for hunger . Don't go out with empty stomach always have full of stomach at home only so that you will not feel hungry outside . You have been addicted to taste of junk foods ,initially you will find it difficult but you need strong mental power to break tendency.
