Eating when you’re not hungry is worse for your health than we thought, according to a new study. It leads to more than just extra calories…

When You Eat Is as Important as What You Eat, Study Finds

By now, you may have already failed in that New Year’s resolution to eat healthier in 2016…

But it’s not too late. You can still get back on track. And the secret may be easier than you think:

Simply don’t eat when you’re not hungry.

A new study reveals it may be one of the worst food mistake you can make.

Researchers at Cornell University looked at 45 undergraduate students. They rated their hunger levels before eating a carb-heavy meal. When they were done, their blood sugar was measured at regular intervals.

They found students who were hungry before their meal had smaller rises in blood sugar. Those who were not hungry before eating had bigger spikes afterwards.1

When you eat carb-heavy foods, your blood sugar spikes. The less your blood sugar rises after a meal, the better off you are.

The research shows eating when you aren’t hungry can have a negative impact on your health. It goes beyond extra caloric intake or even weight gain. A sharp rise in blood sugar can cause cellular damage.

How can you avoid eating when you aren’t hungry?

The easiest way is to not buy processed snack foods. When you don’t keep junk foods in your kitchen, you are less likely to indulge.  Instead, keep fresh berries, raw almonds, baby carrots, or celery on hand. That way if you do need a quick bite between meals, it’s something nutrient-dense and satisfying.

And make sure your meals include organic green vegetables. Things like kale, spinach, and Swiss chard. They help you feel full after eating.2 This makes you less likely to snack.

But the best way to avoid non-hungry eating is to stay active.

When you minimize your couch time, it’s harder to snack. The opportunity doesn’t present itself. And when it does, you’ll be more likely to eat something healthier. Food industry research shows “healthy snackers” are about 50% more likely to exercise several times a week.3

And if you do slip up now and then… There’s an easy way to get the support you need to keep your blood sugar level in the normal range.

Our research team developed GlucoGold to include the four most critical natural ingredients for blood sugar balance…

Like the ancient herb Harvard doctors confirm helps improve natural insulin sensitivity… And the “miracle mineral”—it’s almost impossible to get from diet alone—that crushes your most intense carbohydrate cravings.
