    Research shows that snacking in particular is often the result of mistaking thirst for hunger; write Tarla Dalal and Dr Swati Piramal in East Your Way to Good Health. Water has no calories, so it's great for filling up. Those who find it a plain bore can quaff low-calorie drinks that contain mostly water such as buttermilk, coconut water, and watermelon juice. Clear vegetable or dal soups are nutritious and don't have many calories, avoid cream soups.

    The more slowly you eat; the easier it is to recognize your body's satiety signals. And what snack takes longer than peeling and sectioning an orange? Oranges have only 48 calories. (200 ml of orange juice, with all the fiber gone, has about 115).

    Salads

    Ranker Video v
    Make salads with tomato, car rot, beetroot, cabbage, capsicum, lettuce, or cucumber all low in calories-your diet staple, to liven them up, you can use curd or lemon as a salad dressing. Sandwiches too, are a goods way to have these raw vegetables. The bread helps fill you up, but don't use butter-spread a coriander-and-mint chutney instead would do good.

    High fiber cereals

    Ranker Video v
    By providing bulk, some cereal-based foods, too, fill you up on relatively few calories. They include chapattis, roasted corn on the cob, dhokla or idlis, and white rice upmas. Other breakfast choices could be oats, poha, or rice wheat-or- corn-flakes low in sugar'. Pour skim milk on the flakes. If you prefer them sweet, add chopped fruit.

    Sprouted pulses

    Ranker Video v
    When pulses are sprouted, they gain vitamins and fiber. Eaten raw, they're good for slimming. Moong, for instance, sprouts quickly and its sprouts taste good raw. A 50-gram serving has about 140 calories. Raw sprouts of other pulses-rajma, broad beans and dried peas for example-can be made more palatable if they're steamed, though this lowers their nutrient value.

    Chocolate bar

    Ranker Video v
    To avoid binges, it's important to indulge yourself once in a while. An occasional 20-gram chocolate bar-about the size of a small 5 star-is a good choice for sweet-tooth cravings, because it's individually pack aged and thus less risky than cake, ice cream, or puddings.

    A diet containing these foods can help you lose weight, but don't neglect exercise. Scientific studies have shown that calories intake is not necessarily higher in the obese than in normal people. It's energy expenditure that's often lower in those who are overweight. So make sure your weight-reduction plan gives equal importance to exercise

    So the next time when each one of you is off to shop for food or sit down to eat, don't forget to incorporate these foods in some or the other way to achieve a healthy and balanced diet.
