Consider cutting out simple sugars and generally reducing your overall intake of starchy carbohydrates. Increase protein intake and make sure you have a portion of polyunsaturated or monounsaturated fat with each meal. There's an excellent diet plan/advice in the program I've been using for about a year now. It's available as a free download from lulu or as a hard copy from Amazon.

I agree that you need to cut down on sugars and junky carbs, the more one eats, the more one seems to need. Also remember that overeating causes your stomach to stretch out and therefore consume more food.

Solution: Cut out large portions and junk foods. Eat regularly, but don't ever overeat, and your stomach will begin to require less food to feel full.

Water, water, WATER! Often thirst is perceived as hunger, we are so busy there is no time to drink! If you feel hungry and you know that you should not be, have at least an 8oz drink of water (still or sparkling, hot or iced) and wait a bit. You will forget that you are "hungry" and realize that you were just thirsty. This really works!

Absolutely don't pick up smoking. Smoking more often than not causes more long-term health problems than overeating and extra pounds. See, when you give up overeating, and if you need to lose weight but lose all you need, often times, the health problems from too much weight either goes away, or greatly reduces to newfound better eating. But, sadly, giving up smoking does not always guarantee you won't have life-long problems later ( but if a person quits, at least, the problems won't be as bad as if a person kept smoking...)

My added two cents, in addition to more water, and eating the right stuff ( candy, sugar junk and salt junk won't help at all), I would say, if you have not been good about taking the time to taste your food, start doing so. I came to realize I wolf my food down like the world is coming to an end, and as a result, I feel like I did not eat what I just ate. Not only take time to just TRULY eat your food, but eat at a slower pace. Put a little in your mouth, put the utensils ( or if not eating with utensils, the food), and chew at least 20 times, even if that 20 times includes the food being gone before the 20 times are up. Wait 60 seconds, then repeat. You may find yourself leaving some food behind, and if you are like me and don't like throwing out food, save it for later. All The King's Men serves an excellent point about the stomache. When I found myself eating smaller portions, my stomache reached the point of not needing as much food. I went from eating 3 plates at the buffet to not really being able to do buffets anymore.
Also, question yourself, are you eating out of hunger, or fulfill emotions? If it is emotional eating, or you are unsure, the best thing is to find something to do, or occupy your mind to avoid emotional eating. If you are emotional eating too much, you may want to try professional help, like Eater's Annonymous, and also be in constant prayer with the Good Lord. God has taken my desires of junk food from me and led me into better eating...

Exactly what Thecla said above..... Make sure you eat a good breakfast without a lot of complex carbs. I've had good luck w/Weight-control oatmeal with cinnamon and flax seeds added in.. cinnamons helps stabilize blood sugar and flax seeds provide Omega fatty acids and protein to help alleviate hunger. Eat smaller more frequent meals. Always eat protein with every meal, like fruit and nuts together for a snack. (And I am not really recommending it, but I found that hoodia - hoodia patches especially- have really helped turn off the hunger for me. My stomach would be growling before I'd remember to eat. however it also turns off the thirst signals too, so make sure you drink water if you use it. Also, not eating is bad too, as if you don't eat enough your metabolism will slow itself down).

Oh, and throw out your plates and eat on smaller ones. Only use plates that are smaller than 9" across. Studies show people eat considerably less when they use smaller plates.

Make sure your hurdle is truly an issue of appetite, and not habit.... or maybe even boredom.

The smart diet is fresh vegetables and water in abundance, with lean protein and fresh fruit in reasonable amounts. Keep your stomach 25% to 75% full. (Allowing it to completely empty or to pack it full will be the downfall of any nutritional plan.)

Stick to it (well, stick to it 85% of the time!) for five weeks, and your old habits will be just about all broken....and your new habits just about all established.

Good luck!

Simply cutting out sodas will help. The amount of sodium in soda is overwhelming (even the diet sodas!) and will actually cause more issues.

I cut out sugar and grains and it helped immensely. It was hard the first several days, but not I'm not as hungry and not craving sweets. I'm following recommendations from this book and marksdailyapple.com. The Primal Blueprint: Reprogram your genes for effortless weight loss, vibrant health, and boundless energy

I like kelloggs protein water as an appetite muter because it has both protein and fiber. It's cheaper in powder than in bottles.

When I weight train regularly it reduces my appetite but cardio makes me hungrier.

Teavana Mate teas. Mate will curb your appetite. Oolong will grab consumed and stored fat. Teavana products are sold on Amazon or check out their site. Don't buy cheapo oolong. My appetite is non exsistent and I am more than "regular" now. I've lost 8lbs in 3 wks. My mom has lost 10lbs in 2 wks. (She has more to lose than me.) Good luck!

Meridia, but you have to talk your doctor into prescribing it for you. Most will for a limited time.

Add 2 tablespoons ground flax seed to your breakfast.

Hi M. Wood,

I've struggled with my weight for a long time. I like food and I tend to be an emotional type eater,,, hungry or not. I found this product that I LOVE... It curbs my appetite, gives me more energy, I'm sleeping better, curbs cravings. The company promotes HEALTH and well-being with 16 Keys to a Healthy Lifestyle; including exercise, eating healthier, etc. This is all natural, no ephedra... www.nexagenusa.com/mdollus

I am just passing along because this helped me tremendously and lots of people I know.

To those who are currently smoking, Swedish Snus, a smokeless tobacco, is a healthier alternative and still curbs appetite. Note I do not say a "healthy" alternative, but the carcinogenic properties are greatly reduced. I quit smoking over a year ago and replaced it with Snus. I would still like to be tobacco free, and it's definitely not good for my blood pressure, but for now, this is the most cost effective and safest alternative I could find since I lack the will to quit.

Honestly, I don't think you can find a supplement that curns your appetite. I have a hugh appetite and I have everything. You might want to monitor your blood sugar for awhile and see if you have high spikes and low spikes. I find that when my blood sugar is level, I don't crave things. Also, drink 10 cups of water per day. I also recommend The Beck Diet Solution book and joining ediets.
