Although it may not be possible to stop hunger completely, methods to reduce hunger cravings include eating more fiber that is filling, consuming a large salad before meals and eating soup or broth prior to a meal. Eating an orange or a grapefruit daily may also help curb the appetite.
Adding variety to each meal can help reduce hunger pains. For example, eat smaller portions of a variety of foods, such as vegetables, meat and fiber, during every meal. Increasing intake of milk or low-fat dairy products provides the body with whey and casein protein, which serve as appetite suppressors.
