Eat High-Fiber Snacks

If you use a juicer to make your daily drinks, don’t discard the excess juice pulp. Save the pulp to make guilt-free snacks in between your main meals like guacamole and bars. Snack on these small bites or reach for roasted chickpeas or salted edamame before your lunch or dinner juice. Chewing on foods with fiber will keep you full for longer and will break up the all-liquid diet so you won’t feel like you’re missing out on solid foods.

Q: I end up overeating because it makes me feel better and I never really get full. I'd like to lose weight but this makes it hard. Any suggestions?

A: Being persistently hungry can cause big trouble. So can overeating for comfort/pleasure. These two behaviors, say researchers from Baylor University's Children's Nutrition Research Center, are controlled deep within your brain by serotonin-producing neurons, but operate separately from each other — one in the hypothalamus, the other in the midbrain. They both can, however, end up fueling poor nutritional choices and obesity.

Eating for Hunger

When hunger is your motive for eating, the question is: "Does your body know when you've had enough?" Well, if you are overweight, obese or have diabetes you may develop leptin resistance and your "I am full" hormone, leptin, can't do its job. The hormone's signal to your hypothalamus is dampened, and you keep eating.
