Fiber keeps you fuller for a longer period of time. That is because fiber moves very slowly through your digestive tract. It satiates your stomach better than any other food.

Eliminate your trigger foods from your kitchen cupboards by cleaning it out. Get rid of junk foods or sweetened snacks that make it easy for you to binge. Instead of those food options, try replacing them with healthier options like fruits or cereal. Swap out those candies and harmful foods for something that your body will thank you for.
