The obvious place to start is toeliminate non diet sodas. Some people even think diet sodas can add toweight gain. (Some suggest the bloating causes one to cravemore food, and some think the artificial sweetness keeps one fromcraving natural sweets like fruit.....the body craves super sweet foodsinstead.)  Also remember to count the calories in helthy foodslike juice and milk.

2.  Eat More Protein
Noone is quite sure, but high protein foods tend to be more satiating. Just remember to eat a balanced diet or you might have foodcravings of another sort.

3.  Eat More Fiber
Likefoods with protein, foods that are naturally high in fiber tend to fillone up.

4. Avoid Temptation
Food companies havespent a fortune on making food that is addictive by adding lots of saltor sugar... to foods. This causes other food to seem bland. If you find certain food to be addictive....avoid it ....particularly at home.
