Watch what you eat
• Take notice of your eating habits to see if any change is required. If you eat large meals, then divide it into small parts at different intervals, and better serve in small plates.
• Replace sugary snacks with fruits or nuts, but in small quantity. • If you still feel hungry even after eating enough meal, you should have food that fills you in small amounts so that you don’t feel hungry.
• Instead of having pastry or pudding, take natural yogurt. You can add some fruit in it.
• Eat slowly, because if you eat fast you will have more. Slow eating habit has many benefits as you eat less and chew for long that enhances the metabolism.
Buy what is good for you

Get healthy recipes
Instead of sticking to old meals, try new recipes with healthy and low Cal ingredients. There are many recipe books in the market, but if you are creative you can develop your own recipes.
Soups are good
Include more soups in your diet as they fill the stomach without feeling a temptation for heavy meal. You can also have it as a starter, because this way you eat less meal, eventually you will have low calories. However, soup should be healthy with less starch and cream or butter, etc.
Know what your body wants
Hunger may vary from person to person as some people feel more hungry even after having enough food. But, if you feel hungry that doesn’t mean that you need food, like it can be due to some feelings, may be you are bored, annoyed, or depressed for any reason and want to indulge in food to run from the situation. If your appetite is very strong then instead of eating a lot, take fiber which fills the body. You can get fiber from fruits, vegetables, and wholegrain.
