The Secret to Success

Stock up on foods that contain a lot of water or air, such as vegetables, soups and popcorn. Much maligned popcorn is a relatively healthy snack—just make sure it's air-popped and not bathed in butter. Other suggestions include eating warm broth-based soups and making vegetables the main feature of a mini meal. Try these tips.

  • Replace regular spaghetti with spaghetti squash, and top it with a lean turkey Bolognese sauce (protein) and parmesan (a little fat).
  • Dress up popcorn with cinnamon, which is proven to reduce sugar cravings by regulating blood-sugar levels.
  • Pair a protein or a healthy fat such as string cheese, hummus, yogurt or nuts with a selection of crudites to ensure staying power.
  • Give pre-made soups a boost by tossing in chopped veggies.
