Want to lose weight? Eat more fiber

High-fiber foods generally take longer to chew. This gives your body time to register when you''re no longer hungry, so you''re less likely to overeat. And high-fiber foods tend to make you feel full longer, so you won''t be as ravenous later. Finally, high-fiber foods tend to have fewer calories for the same volume of food. Choose whole grains and whole-grain products, fruits and vegetables, and beans, peas and other legumes.
