You can try these to reduce your appetite:1. Add red pepper flakes to your pantry. When eaten early in the day, red pepper lowers the amount of food you'll eat later.
2. Sugarless chewing gum can suppress your appetite in a pinch.
3. Eating liquid-based foods such as natural smoothies and low-sodium soup can help you cut back on calories yet feel full.
4. Remember these five essential smoothie ingredients: frozen berries, a banana, skim milk, a teaspoon of honey and a teaspoon of psyllium seed husks.
