Appetite control is vital if you want to avoid overeating and if you want to stick to your calorie limits. Of course, this is a task that is often easier said than done for most of us, which is why weight loss can be a challenge, even for the most dedicated dieter.

In addition to the assistance of diet pills that may provide you with greater control over your hunger and snacking, there are other natural ways that you can be the master of your appetite to prevent your desire to eat from getting out of hand.

Consider implementing some of these habits into your 2019 dieting goals:

  • Eat more foods high in fiber – Filling up on good-for-you high fiber foods can help you stay fuller for longer. Fiber slows down digestion, which can help you feel satisfied for an extended period of time. Vegetables, apples, avocados, beans, chia seeds and whole grains are all great sources of fiber. Be sure to get a nice balance of both soluble and insoluble fiber.
  • Drink a full glass of water before every meal – Drinking a large glass of water before a meal can help you feel fuller, more satisfied and less hungry after you’ve eaten your portion-controlled meal.
  • Get regular sleep – Sleep is vital to your appetite, energy and mental state of mind. When you do not obtain proper sleep you are far more likely to be stressed and may have a stronger desire to eat high-fat and high-calorie comfort foods. Try to go to bed and get up at the same time every day.
  • Establish an eating schedule – Stick to an eating routine. Eat your meals and snacks at the same time every day. Your body will not only get used to eating at this same time, but it will also help you to avoid snacking when you don’t need to.
  • Exercise before a meal – A number of studies have found that appetite hormones are suppressed immediately after exercise, especially high-intensity workouts. More specifically, studies have found that there are lower levels of the hormone that makes us hungry (ghrelin) and higher levels of PPY and GLP-1, hormones that make us feel full, after exercising.
  • Pay attention to the food on your plate – Avoid distraction when you have your meals. Focus on what you’re eating and enjoy your food. The less distracted you are by work, television or something else that has your complete attention, the more mindful you will be of what – and how much – you’re ingesting.
