Managing Hunger

To manage your weight, you have to manage your hunger. Here are six tips:
  1. S-l-o-o-o-w down. Your body takes about 20 minutes to signal it’s had enough food. Leafy green salads take a while to eat, giving your body enough time to recognize it’s satisfied.
  2. Break the fast. Eating a morning meal makes it less likely you’ll overeat during the rest of the day.
  3. Make room for snacks in your diet. Foods with fiber or protein, such as a small piece of cheese, whole grain crackers or nuts, will help keep you from feeling famished between meals.
  4. Select high fiber foods. They’ll help you feel full longer.
  5. Choose foods with high water content—whole fruits, whole vegetables and broth-based soups—to help reduce hunger.
  6. Stay calm. Develop ways to cope with stress so you’re less likely to overeat.
