This does not mean to stay hungry till eat your next big meal. All need to do is become mindful of your snacking and stock some healthy foods that are low in calories and high on nutrients, Times of India reported.

There are some everyday foods and drinks that can help to suppress your appetite and prevent you from eating that burger or pastry:

Almonds

Almonds are a rich source of fibre, antioxidants, vitamin E, and magnesium and just a handful of almonds can naturally suppress your appetite for a good period of time.

Coffee

Caffeine and antioxidants from the coffee beans can also help to suppress your appetite. Black coffee also helps in calorie burn, fat breakdown and boosting your metabolism. Note that you may not benefit if you drink too much coffee.

Ginger

Ginger is widely consumed for digestive powers and strong flavour. Including ginger in your meals adds to your energy and also naturally suppresses your appetite. Due to its medicinal properties, ginger also helps to ease nausea.

Apples

All varieties of apples are packed with soluble fibre, pectin and water content, which help you feel full for a longer period of time. Apples regulate your glucose, boost your energy level and avoid absorption of additional calories.

Water

Your body needs water. Increasing your water intake will help to naturally suppress your appetite and improve your digestive system as well. Keep sipping water at regular intervals throughout the day.
