Use Smaller Plates
The smaller plate will not hold as much as the bigger plate and makes it easier to control the stomach.
After eating a meal, wait about 20 minutes before going for a second serving.
This gives the time needed to allow the food you just ate to settle. If you need to, walk away from the table and find something to keep you busy in the 20 minute interim.
Add Some Lean Protein In Your Diet
I would not go as far as the Atkins Diet where most of what you eat is basically all animal protein. This is for the reason that all animal protein sources lack the essential variety of nutrients.
Acceptable protein sources are; salmon, tilapia, tuna, tofu, beans, and skin less chicken. Chicken breasts being a better part of the chicken to eat as the rest of the chicken tends to be more fatty.
Note: if you are trying to lose weight – do not resort to protein supplements/shakes.
Consume a Variety of Soup
This is because soup takes longer to digest than regular whole food.
I wouldn’t eat just soup but it can be a great idea to fit it in for lunch every day or every other day. The more thick you make the soup you make – the better.
Have a Smoothie For a Snack
Not to mention that it can prolong hunger.
Just like soup (blended vegetables with added water and spice), smoothies and home made juice could work in the same way.
Quick Tip: Avoid the use of dairy in your smoothies if you choose to blend one.

Last But Not Least...
If you have not noticed, we begin to feel hungry after eating sugar.
This also includes; store bought fruit juices, cookies, bakery, candy, chocolate, etc.
Even though dark chocolate is supposed to be good for you (in small amounts) it could make feeling hungry which could also lead to overeating.
Tip: If you crave sugar - eat some whole fruit!
