Earlier this week I showed you how to put on a few pounds the healthy way. Since then, I’ve received a few emails from individuals thanking me for the post but were still concerned about their appetite and desire to eat.
“I’m just not hungry”
Force feeding yourself and enhancing your appetite can be a tough task at times so I wanted to share with you a few natural herbs, spices, supplements and activities that will boost hunger and get you eating a little more.
EAT WITH YOUR EYES, NOSE & TONGUE
You’ve heard it over and over that we eat with our eyes. The colors red, yellow and orange have been shown to increase appetite. Try adding these to your plate:
* red, yellow & orange sweet peppers * cherry tomatoes * orange slices
* cloves * oregano * fennel * caraway * garlic
* Parsley * Oregano * Basil * Nutmeg * Mint * Garlic * Cinnamon * Cayenne * Turmeric * Cumin * Peppermint * Spearmint * Bitter melon * dark cocoa * Red wine * apples
* Shellfish * Red Meat * Nuts * Dairy * Whole grains * Nuts * Dairy
Take 15 minutes before your meals and engage in a little exercise whether it’s a brisk walk, a few pushups or even jumping jacks.
I hope that you’ll incorporate of few of the above into your routine and that you’ll start noticing an improvement in your appetite and overall health and weight!
