EJ_background_imageNuts: Filled with fiber (1/4 cup is around four grams of fiber), nuts help lower cholesterol in addition to keeping you full for a long time. Nuts digest slowly, so they stay in your stomach longer than other carbohydrates.

Mint: Mint is an effective appetite suppressant. Drink mint tea if you are trying to cut back on oversnacking. It’s also great if you’re looking for a relaxing drink at nighttime.

Eggs: One of the best protein-packed food to eat for breakfast are eggs. Whether you eat them scrambled or fried, studies have shown eggs can control your appetite for up to 36 hours.

Oatmeal: Another powerful breakfast food is oatmeal; a half a cup of rolled oats contains approximately five grams of fiber, which keeps you feeling full. Mix in blueberries and cinnamon for your morning breakfast to keep you full until lunch.

Apples: Apples are a great source of fiber to keep you feeling full. The high water content in apples helps fill you as well. Apples also contain pectin, which can help prevent blood sugar spikes that spur hunger.
