Hunger hormone ghrelin triggers hunger. You can control ghrelin by making sure you eat throughout the day. I normally recommend my clients eat every 3-4 hours and to make sure to include protein and healthy carbs when eating.
For example, if you eat a salad, add chicken, fish, or tofu (protein) as well as a healthy whole grain such as brown rice, quinoa, or beans (carbs). Use this technique when snacking too. Try an apple (carb) and some string cheese (protein).
