Does your appetite seem to be on over-drive? Check out these five simple tips for keeping it in control.

Divide and Conquer Your Appetite
To prevent getting overly hungry, try turning one regular-sized meal into multiple, smaller meals. For instance, if you normally eat soup and sandwich for lunch, eat your sandwich at lunch, then heat your soup later as an early afternoon snack. Or, "go halves" and eat half of both your sandwich and soup serving now and the rest a few hours later.

Fill Up on Fiber
If you are feeling especially hungry when you sit down to a meal, you will likely take oversized portions or go for seconds.  To avoid overdoing it, try filling up with fiber-rich vegetables before you eat any other types of foods.  They may normally serve as side dishes, but using veggies as a starter is a low-cal, high-fiber way to control your appetite.  If you still want seconds, another serving of veggies is ideal for rounding out your meal in a healthy way.

Eat Enough at Mealtimes
Regular, healthful snacks are a great way to keep your appetite in check.  If you only eat three meals a day, you need to make sure you are eating enough at each meal to hold you over until the next one.

If you are following a diet plan that includes snacks, add those missing calories into your meal instead. Be sure to include protein such as eggs, lean meat, or fish in each meal as it will provide a longer-lasting sense of satiety and keep your energy level up.


Eat "Slow" Snacks
Remember that it takes up to 20 minutes for your brain to get the "signal" that you have eaten and are full. The longer it takes to eat something, the better. Choose foods that require a lot of chewing when you feel likely to overeat.
