Easy Ways to Curb Your Cravings & Control Your Hunger

Do you feel like you’re constantly battling uncontrollable hunger and cravings between meals? Being able to fight off cravings and successfully control your hunger are the keys to weight loss. Listen to Chris and Heidi explain these incredible tips on how to curb your cravings, so you can stay on track and achieve your goals.

Hunger is the #1 enemy to weight loss. Nothing is worse than feeling an uncontrollable urge to snack all day.

These pesky hunger pangs (and cravings) can attack shortly after you’ve just eaten a meal, causing you to consume extra calories. The combination of uncontrollable hunger and consuming excess calories, as a result, will destroy your weight loss progress, and even cause you to gain weight.

If you really want to be successful at losing weight and keeping those pounds off for good, you need to learn how to control hunger and fight off cravings in a healthy way.

Chris and Heidi have put together the ultimate list of 6 ways to help you control your hunger or satisfy your cravings between meals, then we’re going to show you a bonus #7 that you will LOVE. (You can click here to skip down to Bonus Tip #7!)

#1. Drink a Tall Glass of Water

Lower blood sugar by drinking more water to help you metabolic health
When you start to feel those hunger pangs creeping on in, one quick and easy thing you can do to help keep your hunger in check in between meals is drinking 2 cups of water.

That’s right! The thirst mechanism for our brain is rather weak, so it is easy for us to confuse thirst for hunger. That means sometimes when we think we’re hungry, we may just be thirsty.

We suggest carrying around a reusable water bottle with you, not only to help you keep your hunger in control, but to also help you stay hydrated throughout the day!

#2. Add Volume to Your Meals With Vegetables

Want to volumize your meals and add more bulk to them so you can eat more, but don’t want to sabotage your weight loss goals?

Try adding in vegetables. These powerhouse foods are:

  • Low in calories
  • High in fiber

This means you can add plenty of them to your meals, without throwing off your calorie goals. They’re also high in fiber, a macronutrient that helps keep you regular, supports gut health, and can also help keep you feeling full for longer periods of time.

Vegetables high in fiber and low in calories help provide more bulk to your meals and also help you squash your hunger. Talk about a win-win.

#3. Chew Some Sugar-Free Gum, Or Pop In a Mint

The next time some cravings start to hit, try some sugar-free gum, or pop in a tasty breath mint.


Mint can help support appetite suppression. Plus, a good minty flavor is quite refreshing!

#4. Make Sure Your Breakfast Carbs Are High In Fiber

Another BIG way you can curb your hunger is to make sure your breakfast carbs are high in fiber. Try and shoot for around 5+ grams of fiber!

Once again, this fiber will help slow down digestion and also allow you to feel full and satiated for longer periods of time. That means less time having to battle cravings head-on between breakfast and lunch.

Here are some foods high fiber foods you can include in your breakfast:

  • Whole-grain products
  • Fruits
  • Vegetables

Heidi says that this tip is a game changer for her, so definitely try it out!

#5. Avoid Craving Triggers 

Have you ever heard the saying, “Out of sight, out of mind”?

Another great way to help battle cravings is to recognize which situations trigger these cravings, and also just getting rid of unhealthy foods that can trigger these cravings.

Do you feel snacky while you sit down and watch TV shows? Do you give into cravings when you are stressed out? Do you get extremely hungry when you get bored? What has been your go-to snack to fulfill these cravings?

Try and fill your “plate” (see what we did there?) with alternative activities to help you avoid putting yourself in situations where you’ll snack uncontrollably. Also, get rid of these snacks that cause these cravings, so you won’t feel tempted anymore!

It’s important to note, however, that we think snacks are a good thing! That’s right, planned, nutritious snacks should be a part of your eating routine.

In this case, we’re talking about uncontrolled, unplanned snacking on unhealthy foods.

#6. Eat Some Healthy Fats, Followed By Water or Tea

Another great way to nuke these craving feelings in their tracks is actually by eating some healthy dietary fats, followed by some 1-2 cups of liquid, like water or tea.

About 20 minutes after eating these fats, the valve between your stomach and intestines will fill up. The liquid you drink will then help fill the stomach. This will cause a strong “full feeling” signal to be sent to your brain.

Keep in mind, though, that these fats still have calories, ranging anywhere from 100-200 per serving. So make sure to include this into your total daily calorie consumption. And also, make sure that they are healthy fats!

Some ideas of healthy fats you can use to help kick cravings to the curb are:

  • A handful of nuts
  • Some avocado
  • String cheese

Have some planned snacks like these on-hand the next time you are hit with some cravings and see how easy it is to fight back in a healthy way!
