If you can increase the volume of food you take in, you will decrease your feelings of hunger and food cravings.
To do this, eat foods with high water, fiber, and protein content. Consuming high-volume foods will result in less calorie intake and will satisfy your body through the release of hunger hormones. Vegetables offer the most variety in terms of high volume, low fat foods. Any dark green leafy vegetable provides a lot of nutrients and volume for little calories.
