The Outwit-Your-Brain Diet

  • Avoid starvation diets. They simply don't work. Instead, eat balanced meals, avoid binges and limit snacks.

  • Eat slowly. It takes about 20 minutes for your stomach to tell your brain that it's full.

  • Skip the bread served at restaurants before a meal. The bread will leave you hungrier. Eat a salad instead.

  • Drink water. Water can fill you up and leave you with less of an appetite.

  • Swap fiber for fat. Fiber can make you feel bloated so you'll eat less at dinner. Choose celery or carrot sticks for snacks.
