4 foods that always leave ya wanting more


A well-balanced meal delivers everything your body needs to stay energized and full ‘til your next meal time. But too often, we gobble down food that makes us crave more, not less. Here are four of those keep-eating culprits.

 

Doughnuts

It’s the best idea we’ve ever had for breakfast, but two whoppers later, we’re still eyeing the rest of the box and wondering if anyone will notice if another goes missing. Yeah, not a good idea—not just because it’s loaded with tons of sugar and empty carbs, but it’s also not doing much to fuel you for the day ahead. A doughnut every once in a while—especially alongside a protein-packed nosh? Totally fine. But relying on these guys to get you to lunch or later is so not a good idea, in more ways than one.

 

Chinese Food

Have you ever stuffed yourself with egg rolls, dumplings, fried rice and chicken and broccoli? You know, eaten so much you were pretty sure you wouldn’t be eating for another week? Yep, us too. And we bet the three-hours-later feeling of a rumbling, somehow-hungry tummy is familiar to you, too. Chinese food is typically loaded with sodium and MSG, all things that send conflicting signals to your brain and stomach about how full you are…and then suddenly, aren’t.

 

Frozen Dinners

If you’ve ever looked at the nutrition label for a frozen meal, you know it’s technically packed with way more stuff than you should eat in a single sitting—salt, saturated fat and sugars are off the charts to make it tasty. But when it comes to important stats like protein and fiber, well, they leave you wanting. Which leads to snacking. Which is basically dinner number 2. Sigh.

 

Meal Replacements

Whether they are bars or drinks, these diet products are billed as healthy meal alternatives. Except…we still want to eat a whole meal after we suck ‘em down. That’s a problem because they’re designed to have everything you need in one handy, quick-to-consume package.
