Drink two eight-ounce glasses (16 ounces total) of water before each meal. It will fill up your stomach and trim up to 60 calories per meal.

Foods that fill you up
These bites help you feel full fast without putting a huge dent in your daily calorie count.

Green and orange vegetables contain about 90 percent water, which fills your stomach and makes your brain register fullness.

Spuds
Potatoes (both white and sweet) contain hunger-fighting resistant starch. A new study in the British Journal of Nutrition found resistant starch may boost satiety to help you stay full for up to 24 hours — and eat about 320 calories less per day.

In the sea
Fish contains omega-3 fatty acids, which can help stop tummy grumbling for hours. Fish eaters felt more full than beef eaters, plus downed 75 fewer calories at the next meal, according to a study in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

Go a little nutty
The complex trio of fiber, protein, and fat in nuts activates satiety so you chow down on fewer calories throughout the day. (Plus they may increase metabolism up to 11 percent.)

Add some oats
Oats contain a filling fiber compound called beta-glucan, which helps the body release CCK, a hunger-suppressing hormone.

Variety of beans
Beans contain a fiber-protein balance to increase fullness. As an added bonus, a diet rich in legumes may also up your metabolism, according to a Spanish study.

Egg-cellent
Eggs are protein-packed, so it's no wonder a study in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition found eating them helps control appetite for up to 36 hours.
