Green Tea -the catechins (helpful phytochemicals) in green tea may trigger weight release by stimulating the body to burn calories and mildly decrease body fat. So take some time out to relax and have a nice hot cup or a n tall iced glass of green tea.

Low-calorie green salads, broths or tomato soup – Having a low-calorie salad or soup, which isn’t loaded with fatty dressing, can help you feel full, thereby reducing how much you eat with your main course. Wisely choose your ingredients, and its high fiber and high water content can be the key to helping you fight cravings later in the day.  For example lots of leafy greens, cucumber, capsicum.

Beans – A great combination of fiber and protein, beans help you feel full longer, which means they may work to curb your between-meal appetite.

Water – Water is your body’s lifeblood, and you should be drinking it through your day. It’s a great no-calorie beverage, and you can get it by drinking unsweetened tea, flavored unsweetened mineral water, regular water with lime or lemon, or even in your cucumber. In addition to helping flush toxins from the body, it can also help you feel full. So when those hunger pangs strike, try drinking a glass of water before grabbing that snack.

High-Fiber, Whole-Grain Cereal – Whole grains in general help boost fiber and the nutritional value of your meal. One of the easiest ways to give your daily diet a whole-grain boost is to have a bowl of higher-fiber whole-grain cereal as breakfast or a snack. For example Oats, quinoa.
