Flaxseeds – omega-3s! One tablespoon alone contains 2.3 grams  of them, as well as 3 grams of keep-me-full fiber. Flaxseeds are also chock full of omega-6 fatty acids, increasing levels of that cholecystokinin.

Vinegar – by lowering the glycemic index of high-carb foods and slowing your stomach from emptying, vinegar can help you feel fuller for longer by slowing the release of glucose into your bloodstream. Add a splash to your next salad and reap the benefits!

Chia Seeds – another great source for omega-3’s, fiber, and protein too! The seeds swell with water, filling your stomach and keeping it full.

And the most important one… water! – hydration is key to keeping that appetite at bay, as sometimes people confuse dehydration with hunger. If you’re still craving, grab an apple or some watermelon, fruits and vegetables with a high water content will have a similar effect.
