2. Get rid of all the bad foods you crave for!

This is the easiest "most common sense" thing you can do to kill your carvings so…

Just throw out all those snacks, candies, donuts and other bad foods that's making you gain weight and even if you still have strong cravings for those bad foods…

The next 20+ tips below will definitely help curb your cravings & put you on the track to permanent weight loss if you stick to them.

3. Eat more fiber (Raw Fruits & Veggies)
veggies fill you up quicker

Fiber keeps you fuller longer and kills all your sugar cravings. Get fiber by eating fruits (especially apples) & vegetables, whole grains, nuts (almonds are the best) and seeds.

Eating Fiber will help you lose weight faster because it fills up your stomach quicker making you eat less.

4. Make sure at least 30% of your diet is protein

Like fiber, Protein also makes you feel full and keeps you satisfied longer because…

Protein helps regulate your blood sugar & it makes your body release appetite suppressing hormones (like cholecystokinin and GLP-1) and in a recent study…

People who drank either whey protein 90 minutes before being allowed to eat freely at a buffet table ate significantly less calories than those who did not drink whey protein.

Use this calculator to see how much protein you need to be 30% of your diet.

5. Drink more WATER

When you get dehydrated you will get very hungry because your body will increase your hunger pangs in an attempt to get more water to re-hydrate itself so make sure you're drinking enough water to prevent hunger and…

You can also drink about 8+ ounces of water before your meals to make you feel fuller quicker so you'll eat less or…

6. You can drink a glass of vegetable juice before meals

Studies have shown that drinking vegetable juice before meals suppresses your appetite by making you eat 135 less calories at each meal.

7. Get Fiber, Protein & Water at ever meal to…

Regulate your blood sugar because when your blood sugar is out of whack you'll crave for more food which means you'll eat a lot more and gain more weight.

For example… If you eat some almonds & some veggies for fiber and eat some tuna or baked chicken for protein and if you wash all that down with 12 ounces of water… You'll won't have any food cravings for at least 3-to-5 hours and…

Drinking at least 8 ounces of water with high fiber foods helps the undigested fiber in your stomach expand to make you feel fuller much longer.

8. Eat a small meal every 2-to-3 hours

Doing this also regulates your blood sugar by giving you a constant supply of energy which really reduces your cravings and kills your big appetite.

9. Don't skip breakfast

Skipping breakfast makes your already low morning blood sugar drop even more and this will cause you to have massive food cravings for the rest of the day and…

You certainly do not want to skip breakfast if your job or lifestyle is stressful as this will make your cravings even worse but on the other hand…

10. Skip breakfast & Try Intermittent fasting

It may be tough for you at first to skip breakfast and fast for 12+ hours a day but Intermittent fasting will progressively eliminate your cravings and you will not be as hungry all the time plus…

Intermittent fasting is a good dieting trick to help you burn fat faster. Learn more about intermittent fasting here but…

Whether you skip or eat breakfast depends on what is best for you when dealing with hunger & cravings to help you lose weight faster.

11. Drink or supplement with Green Tea

Green tea by itself is a potent fat burner but green tea is also a potent appetite suppressant because just like protein…

Green tea also forces your body to release the appetite suppressing hormone CCK (cholecystokinin).

12. Have an egg for breakfast

Studies found that an egg for breakfast helped overweight people feel more full over 24 hours than a bagel-based breakfast of equal calories and the people who ate the egg breakfast ate 330 calories less during the day and after an 8-week study…

The people who had eggs for breakfast instead of bagels lost 65% more weight and they lost 16% more fat and don't worry about your cholesterol levels going up because even though the people in that 8 week study had 2 eggs for breakfast everyday…

Their cholesterol levels were the same as the group that ate bagels after 8 weeks and eating eggs will only raise your HDL cholesterol levels which is the good cholesterol but…

The reason why eggs may be "nature's appetite suppressant" according to dietician Dr. Carrie Ruxton is because eggs increase the powerful satiety hormone PPY (Peptide YY) while lowering hunger causing hormones like ghrelin.

13. Lose Belly Fat & have Less Cravings

According to researchers at University if Western Ontario - Belly fat makes you hungry because it makes a hormone called neuropeptide Y that makes you hungry.

14. Don't get stressed out - relax more.

When you get stressed out you usually overeat because your body releases a hormone called Cortisol that makes you hungry and…

If you have a hard time coping with stress Look at these 100 ways to relieve stress.

15. Understand why you go on a binge

16. Battle PMS cravings with Calcium

Research has shown that women who take calcium supplements or consume at least 1 serving of dairy products daily (like yogurt, skim milk, or low-fat cheese) about 2 weeks before menstruation will significantly lower their cravings during PMS for bad carbs that make them gain weight.

17. Use these 2 words to stop cravings

2 words to stop cravings

18. Avoid refined or processed carbs (mainly sugar)

Refined carbs include heavily processed or high sugar foods like fluffy white breads/bread snacks, regular sodas, most breakfast cereal, sweets, candy, cookies and cakes.

Refined carbs cause your blood sugar levels to rise very fast and then crash very quickly making you crave for more sugar (refined carbs).

Doing numbers 1-to-4 & especially #5 will help reduce your cravings for refined carbs or sugar.

19. Limit your salt intake

Salt also makes your cravings worse and too much salt also causes you to gain unwanted water weight - See how to lose water weight for more info but try to use herbs & spices instead of salt.

20. Take a whiff of Vanilla scent to curb cravings

The sweet smell of vanilla tricks you into thinking you already satisfied your cravings for sugars.

21. Eat on blue plates

It may sound weird but the research does show that blue is a natural appetite suppressant so try to use blue silverware, napkins, etc. whenever you eat and on the flip side…

Red, yellow, and orange have been shown to increase your appetite and make you eat more.

21. Make sure you're getting enough sleep

Not getting enough Sleep makes your body release an appetite causing hormone called Ghrelin that makes you want to eat more so…

Try to get at least 7 hours of sleep so you can lower your Ghrelin levels and increase the levels of the fat burning & appetite suppressing hormone Leptin.

22. Wait out your cravings

Most cravings pass within 20 minutes because they're usually all in your head so you can survive these "fake cravings" by taking your mind off your cravings doing other things such as checking your email, looking at TV or hanging out with friends and…

To tell the difference between a real hunger or just an emotional craving… If your hunger has increased after 20 minutes then you're seriously hungry and even an apple will look delicious!

23. Use spices instead of sugar & salt

Use spices like cinnamon, cloves or ginger for flavor which will help you lose weight instead of sugar & salt that makes you FAT because…

Cinnamon, clove and ginger will decrease your sugar cravings by lowering your blood sugar levels and…

24. Add more hot spices or spicy foods to your meals  

Spicy foods can reduce your appetite by increasing your body's norepinephrine and epinephrine levels (see 30+ spices & spicy foods for weight loss) but…

Canadian researchers found that people who ate appetizers with hot sauce ate 200 less calories than people who did not use hot sauce and…

Another study in the British Journal of Nutrition found that women who added 2 teaspoons of dried red pepper on their food ate less calories during the day.

25. Use Tastants

Tastants are calorie free crystals you add to foods to intensify the foods natural scent and once you smell the foods intensified scent…

This will cause your brain to release a hormone called leptin which makes you feel full while also at the same time - your body will slow down the release of the ghrelin hormone which makes you hungry and… You can go here to get Tastants from Sensa

26. Exercise to eat less

Exercising helps your appetite suppressing hormone Leptin work better and Leptin basically tells you that you're full and you need to stop eating and According to a study in the Journal of Sports Science & Medicine…

People who did 30 minutes of weight loss workouts and body sculpting exercises ate 500+ fewer calories a day and to lose 1 pound of FAT every week or 50 pounds a year - you just have to eat 500 fewer calories a day.

Exercise also decreases the hormone that increase appetite (ghrelin) and the more intense your exercise is = the more your appetite will be decreased.

27. Take Vitamin B-3

Taking Vitamin B-3 will help lower your sugar cravings and it will also help suppress your alcohol cravings as well.

28. Look at the craving secrets guide here

Let cravings coach Diana Walker show you how to end all your cravings for beer, artificial sweeteners, coffee, cookies, cakes, pies, donuts fried foods, fast foods & soda (diet & regular) and other bad foods that prevent you from losing weight but…

Don't ever completely deprive yourself of your favorite foods for long periods of time because this will only make you go crazy and overeat.

29. Have a cheat day or a cheat meal

If your cravings get overwhelming powerful then…

It's okay to cheat every once in a while and as a mater of fact… Go here to see how you can cheat on your diet & still lose weight

30. Use hot sauce

Eating anything that contains capsaicin like chili peppers or hot sauce will reduce your appetite because according to the European Journal of Nutrition… Capsaicin both lowers the hunger inducing hormone ghrelin while increasing the appetite suppressing hormone GLP-1.

31. Take a 15 minute walk

U.K. researchers found that you can reduce your cravings by 12 percent simply by taking a short 15 minute walk.

32. Avoid Sweeteners

Sweeteners trick your brain into making you increase your cravings so avoid diet sodas & artificial sweeteners like Nutrasweet, Equal, Sweet N Low, Sweet Twin, Sugar Twin, Splenda, Sunett & Sweet One and…

Use natrual sweetners like Sweetleaf, Sun Crystals, Stevia, Truvia or PureVia

33. Eat after you workout

If working out increases your appetite then you can quickly & easily get rid of those cravings by eating within 1-to-2 hours of finishing your workout so…

If you're eating 3,4 or 5 meals a day to lose weight and if working out increases your appetite then you want to make sure you schedule your meal times to come sometime shortly after you've finished working out and…

Look at tip #7 above for an idea of what to eat after you workout to keep you satisfied longer.

34. Eat some dark chocolate

Eating 2 small pieces of dark chocolate will help lower your cravings more than eating milk chocolate according to research from the University of Copenhagen.

The bitter taste of dark chocolate signals the body to decrease your appetite and the steric acid content in dark chocolate helps slow digestion (like fiber does) to help you feel fuller longer.

Just make sure that the chocolate you eat is made up of at least 70% cocoa.

35. Eat Potatoes

Potatoes contain a special type of starch that resist digestive enzymes making them stay in your body longer causing you not to get hungry for long periods of time but…

This does not mean you can eat the processed potatoes like french fries or potato chips that are loaded with unhealthy fats, salts and sugars.

36. Include fats in your diet

The good fats that help you burn fat found in olive oil, nuts, avocados and peanut butter decreases your appetite according to a study done in the Journal of Cell Metabolism because during digestion…

These good fats are converted into a compound that tells your brain to kill your hunger pangs.

37. Try TOFU

Tofu contains an ingredient called Genistein that helps you reduce your appetite.

38. Eat more fish

Fish like salmon, tuna & herring are all high in Omega-3 fats and the Omega-3 fats increases your blood levels of the appetite suppressing hormone leptin.

39. Make a fist

A new study found that by simply tightening up your muscles can help you fight off temptations bought on by bad foods such as cakes, sodas & sweets and according to Aparna Labroo who conducted the study…

"People often tense their muscles when exerting willpower, so doing so in the face of temptation helps them resist the indulgence."

40. Buy a bigger fork

Using a bigger fork = You'll take bigger bites = Your Brain & You will be fooled into thinking you are full making you eat much less = You'll keep weight off longer & lose weight faster.

This fact is backed up by a University of Utah study where people using bigger forks ate 10% less.

41. See yourself eating what you crave for

A study done at Carnegie Mellon University showed that people who visualized themselves eating what they craved for…

Ended up eating 61% less than those who did not use visualization before eating what they craved for and the reason this happen is…

The visualization of you eating what you crave for tricks you into believing you've already had what you crave for and this helps you to significantly reduce your cravings.

42. Is it a craving or… Is it hunger?

Hunger is your body telling you to eat so hunger is actually physiological and cravings are all in your head so cravings are psychological or fake hunger and…

Hi!

Red pepper may seem like an unlikely source for weight loss. However, it is a good idea to keep a shaker of red pepper on hand. Red pepper is known to curb appetite for hours after consumption. It also is known to create a thermic effect on the body that causes it to metabolize fat faster.

Hi Bella, I am Five foot one, and weight one-hundred pounds. I am also thirteen. To keep myself trim, I do as many pushups and I can, as many situps as I can, and hold squat position as long as I can. I also avoid extremely fatty/processed foods. This does not keep me skinny, but it keeps my stomach flat and toned and love-handle free. If you do this every day, I am positive you will get the same results.

(When I started I weighed 20 pounds more.)

Hi,
I just wanted to add black coffee to the list. I have read that there is research to prove that the process of roasting coffee beans releases an appetite suppressing chemical. This goes for decaf as well because it is not the caffeine that does this. I can kill a craving immediately with a hot cup of decaf or sip on iced coffee throughout the day. Just don't add sugar! Have you heard anything about this?

Hi handsome Adrian,
You said egg is a good apetite suppressant. So consume it everyday. But my question is , isn't it's yellow part is full of fat and bad for health? Will it increase our weight? Sorry, because everyone here warn me that consume only white part, but A BIG NO to yellow part. So what do I do Adrian?

I'm 61 years old, 6'1" tall, and weigh 260 pounds. My problem is I'm ALWAYS hungry, and I eat the absolute worst kinds of foods for you. Pizza, red meat, bacon, etc. and delve into the sweets more than I used to, although I'm making SOME progress in that dept.
If only I weren't so hungry ALL THE TIME.

Hey Adrian, I've looked through your website and your tips are awesome! I'm 14 years old female, 5'9 and I weigh around 134-138lbs. I am very athletic, I play volleyball 3-5 times a week, basketball 2-4 times a week and i workout or run about 4 times a week. So ive got a lot of muscle which I realize weighs more than fat.I eat a healthy mostly gluten free diet also. I don't think I'm fat but I have fat I can loose. What do you think is a healthy weight for someone of my athleticism level? I want to slim down to have a skinnier waist and actually be to fully see my muscle ;) any tips/links/diets/exersises would be awesome! Thanks :)

Hi Adrian,
I am worried about my mom. She seems sad all the time because she thinks she is fat. She isn't fat like obese but she could lose about 20 pounds. Do you think if she follows one of your diet plans and does the bigger butt exercise routines then she will not be sad as much? What is the average time to gain 4 inches on the butt? Thanks! I hope this works for her.

September 14, 2012

yes, my plans will work for her but expect for her to see changes on her butt every 2-to-4 weeks

one thing you can do is just eat 3 larger meals containing more fiber, protein, complex carbs like oatmeal and water

August 19, 2012

Bruce

Interesting, I wasn't aware that many appetite suppressants work by making our body believe that it's full, regardless of when we have actually eaten and thus dampening our appetite.

Hey(: I;m16, 5'4" & i weigh 150. I've been super stressed out lately becasue we moved out of state and there has been alot of family and friend issues lately, and when I get stressed out I shut down & dont do anything... I also tend to eat more unhealthy foods.. I've been trying to lose weight, because I've been gaining alot of weight in my tummy and inner thighs and I just really feel unhealthy. I've been able to be on a good diet for about a week, but thats as long as my willpower lasts. But then I'm off track again for twice as long and whatever progress I make durring the week of dieting goes away.. I used to take dance classes and I think that helped keep my weight in check but since the move I havent been able to. I havent even been able to motivate myself enough to just do what I did in Dance class in our new home.. I guess I just really need motivation to get rid of stress and exercise again but it's SO HARD!!!!!!!! Please help. <\\3 It's bad enough I'm the only senior in a new school with braces, I dont want to be overweight too :\

Hello,
I am 16 years old and have struggled weight wise for about 3 years. I've attempted to go into a diet full-force but always end up quitting. I want to lose stomach fat seeing as I find that to be the only problem area, but the exercises are too strenuous and I find my self able to do only a few at a time. How can I diet and exercise to target my stomach area alone to trim down efficiently?

roxanne

honey... you are thirteen years old!!! your body is constantly changing. you may see the other "skinny girls" in school....but dont worry, after highschool they blow up! =0)
the best thing to do is to just eat a little helathier...
do not go out to eat
add more vegetables to your diet
and if you drink milk, only have fat free.
dont decide to stop eating when you feel your stomach is full. eat just enough to feel satisfied. now that is the true trick to maintaining a healthy waistline.....and dont starve...i did that in school and would come home so hungry every day and stuff my face... having too many calories at once

I'm 16 years old, at 6ft tall my weight varies between 210 & 220, i wanna lose at least 30Ibs. On top of my weight problems i have high blood pressure, (my last reading was 168 over 72), and gluten intolerance. I've been stressing a lot about my weight for years now, but I've been unable to get the help i need, (due to lack of money) I'm really looking for a cheap way to lose that 30+ pounds before the end of this year. anything you can do will help a lot!

Dont eat tofu!! It has an enormous amount of natural estrogen in it. Women and men both make estrogen, but only in certain amounts for their body. As a girl, we don't need more estrogen, and addin more can have serious effects to your health. For example, I've been a vegetarian for ten years (since I was 12), and always ate tofu. I now have multiple hormonal problems with my kineys, thyroid, and pituitary gland. In addition, I've been hospitalized multiple times because my periods would get so extremely out of control. Tofu is best eaten sparingly if you are a woman of childbearing or puberty age, or of you are a male of any age. The only people who really benefit from the extra estrogen are women going through menopause.

I agree, increased estrogen in my body, is main reason I have fibroid tumors in and on my uterus. My monthly periods are heavy and last 5-11 days on average. Now each person is different, but going to your doctor to discuss extras estrogen related issues is very important.

Okay, we really don't need to hear about your menstrual problems.

Yeah I Said It

Grow up. Estrogen is a major factor in weight loss for women and men too. Too much if it will hinder many things. The mention of problematic menstrual cycles due to estrogen is completely relative to this post. As a woman with weight gain due to estrogen, I really do need to hear about it. Don't speak for the rest of us.

Someone's cranky. Studies show that it does contribute to weight gain, and that it effects the endocrine system of the body. If you disagree and have another opinion, then so be it. I wasn't speaking fir "the rest of you," so there's no need to be cranky. Have a good day :)

hi Adrian, my name is Allie and I'm 15. I've struggled with my weight forever and I think it's cause I never really got involved in sports as a kid. A few years ago I lost a bunch of weight, but i didn't do it the healthy was and was missing a lot from my diet (ex. i didn't drink milk, no carbs at all, etc.). I just started trying to get healthy so that I could keep the weight off the healthy way, and I've been working out (something I never used to do) but I'm really out of shape and I guess I'm not used to the muscle soreness. And I've been eating really healthy lately, but it's a really difficult sudden transition. I weigh at most 135 (it fluctuates sometimes) and I'm a little over 5'5".... I guess what I'm asking, is is this normal, and what are healthy ways to help me lose weight? thanks so much and sorry this is so long! :)

#1 - you only need to weight yourself ONE time a day if you're going to do it or better yet...

#2 - Only weigh yourself ONCe every 1-to-2 weeks or even better...

#3 - do not weigh yourself at all and use a mirror to determine how good you look

I have large breast that put a lot of pressure on my back which in return make it harder to workout. The pain on my back becomes overwhelming and I then stop my workout. PLEASE HELP!!!!

First i want to start off saying that i love your website because it gives very useful advice! My problem is that i get full really fast. I eat 3 meals a day with 1 or 2 small snacks in between but i only average to about 800-1000 calories a day. I eat 3 servings of vegetablea, 2 servings of fruit, a handful of almonds, and some protein. Does my calorie intake matter since i am eating healthy food ?....Thanks in advance!

Adrian bryant

your calorie intake is low as it is and it probably does not matter in your case but eating at that low amount will make you lose weight fast but you'll probably gain it all back because those low calorie diets are tough to maintain
