Registered dietitian, Marisa Moore recommends focusing on foods that fill you up, but don't fill you out.
This means eating foods that help you feel full on fewer calories. How do you do that? By choosing items that are either high in water, fiber or protein, such as berries and melons.
Fruits and vegetables are full of water and fiber so eating them for snacks or plenty during mealtime will help satisfy your hunger. Another fiber filled snack that's low in calories is popcorn.
"Not the one covered in a lot of butter, but popcorn that is air popped. One serving is 3 cups," says Moore.
Foods with protein also help you feel full longer, like edamame, or soybeans.
Hard boiled eggs and nuts are other great options.
And if you're looking for suggestions for a healthy dinner that will leave you feeling satisfied start by filling half of your plate with vegetables, three or four ounces of salmon and an optional half a cup of brown rice or pasta."
It's important to manage your hunger when you're watching your weight, and eating foods that fill you up, may keep you from filling out.
