Step 1. Sniff peppermint
Take a whiff of peppermint before mealtime. Study participants who did ate nearly 3,000 fewer total calories from fat and sugar each week, reporting that their hunger level decreased dramatically after inhaling the scent.
Step 2. Get more sleep
Aim for eight hours sleep nightly. People who get that many ZZZZs have higher levels of the hormone leptin, an appetite suppressant. Conversely, people who are sleep-deprived have higher levels of the hormone ghrelin, which tells the brain that you’re hungry.
Try “mindful eating,” which means that eating slowly and considering after every bite whether or not you’re still hungry.
Step 4. Eat more fiber
Eat more fiber; it keeps you full longer. In one study, participants who ate an extra 14 grams of fiber per day consumed 10 percent fewer daily calories than those on the lower-fiber plan.
