Do you enjoy driving everywhere? Why not substitute short rides with walks? Or walk down the block with your dog or when listening to your headphones? Alternatively, take the stairs instead of riding the elevator.

The trick to having a full stomach when grocery shopping is to prevent ‘your cravings to buy unhealthy, random foods.’ Other users recommend, “Make your grocery list when hungry, shop when full.”

A commentator recommending this tip says, “If you’re not hungry enough to spend 20 minutes cooking bland rice, you are not really hungry. (Even bland rice) will taste like manna from heaven when you are truly hungry.” So, avoid stocking high-calorie snacks.

“Psyllium husk is pure fiber (zero calories). It expands when in contact with water. It expands in your stomach, giving you the feeling of being full,” reads a post.

One poster recommends, “If you set aside about 100-160oz of water and ensure half of it is drank by lunch, you will lose weight guaranteed. Not only is it better for you to stay hydrated, but it also decreases your unnecessary appetite and improves your overall health.”
