If you have a glass of water when you first start feeling hungry, you will find that it keeps you feeling fuller in nearly every case. If you just drink a full glass of water and have the discipline to wait 10 minutes, you will find that your appetite is either completely gone or reduced.
2. Green vegetables
Lettuce, cabbage, bokchoy, and other leafy vegetables have very few calories. It takes just as many calories for your body to digest them as you get out of the foods themselves. And yet at the same time, they fill your stomach and make you feel full, turning off the hunger signals in your brain.
Apples are great because the bulky fiber fills up your stomach and turns off your appetite control hormones before you overeat. Plus, apples contain various phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals. They’re even a decent source of folic acid. The apple will fill you up for quite a while, and that will stop you from eating calorie-dense foods.
Take food that is rich in fibre. Fibre absorbs water in the stomach and swells up, helping you to feel fuller for longer. Wholemeal bread and pasta, brown rice, beans, lentils, peas, vegetables, nuts and seeds are some of the many foods that are a good source of fibre.
