Feel full on less food

You want to feel satisfied, rather than wanting more after your snack. Foods that are high in water, fiber, or air have fewer calories per bite, so you feel full despite their low calorie count.
Water: Because water is calorie-free, foods that are higher in water, such as broth-base soup (pick low-sodium varieties), dairy (go for low-fat), fruits, and vegetables, can fill you up with fewer calories.
High-water-content food recommendations: yogurt, grapes, watermelon, and celery.
Fiber: Fiber is a type of carbohydrate that slows food digestion and absorption, so it will make you feel full longer. When choosing high-fiber foods, aim for about 2-3 grams of fiber per 100 calories.
High-fiber food recommendations: whole grain crackers, bread, cereal, apples, and berries.
Air: We respond to both visual and physical cues when it comes to feeling full. Because air-filled snacks take up more room with fewer calories, we often feel fuller.
High-air-content food recommendations: reduced-fat or air-popped popcorn without oil and whole wheat English muffins.
Have a wonderful day.

I've always heard that drinking a glass of water 20 min before your meal will help you eat less as well.

Good evening all!!

Roberta, I have heard that too. I do know that chocolate milk works for Kyler - give him a glass before a meal, and he refuses to eat anything. But I don't know how long it works for.

Take care all!! Norma

Yeah when the kids were little they weren't allowed to have their drink before eating as they would fill up on it before the meal came.

One thing that my family does is when eat quit a few beans. We have pinto beans, kidney beans, and black beans. They are quite filling and my husband likes pinto beans with eggs wrapped in a tortilla for breakfast. It is quite filling. Rice also is a good filler.
