    What's the best way to control your appetite? I have this problem where if there is food around without thinking about it I'll grab a bite and wait it. And once I start snacking I can't stop throughout the day. Bit if I'm fasting and I don't eat at all I'm good. I can go without just fine. But as soon as I eat something without even thinking I'll keep returning to that and keep eating snacks.

    That was my exact problem sometime back until I discovered the power of food s in high fibre. It became so easy easy to manage my appetite. Eat filling foods, food s high in fibre before meals and you will thank yourself later. They have a way of reducing appetite and making you stay full for long and don't forget your 8 glasses of water per day.

    I would offer start buying no more than your daily allotment of food each and every day to make sure you have nothing else around that you'll mindlessly put in your mouth. After about a week you should be able to expand to two or three days' worth of food, but continue to eat just one day's worth each time. Eventually you'll learn that if you don't purchase other food you won't be eating it. I keep nothing in my house that isn't a part of my daily routine. I buy groceries once per week and buy just enough to eat for seven days. Once you reach that point there's no turning back really.

    Recently, I have been experiencing a very similar problem. I feel like I am constantly snacking, even when I know I'm not hungry; I find myself bored, and I reach for food without even really realizing what I'm doing. I have been trying to control myself when I go grocery shopping and only buy foods that I can eat for meals, like soup. Avoiding having any snack foods around is helpful, but I still find myself thinking about food whenever I'm not occupied with other things.

    To control my appetite, I drink two glasses of water before a meal. Water help decrease the hunger I feel before a meal and increase feeling of fullness by stretching the stomach and thus promote weight loss. Alternatively, if I don't take water, I eat a bowl of soup before a meal to serve the same purpose as water.

    On the other hand, I opt for a diet containing sufficient fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts and seeds as they contain a lot of fibre. High fibre intake stretches the stomach, slow it emptying rate and lead to feeling of fullness.
