If you're able to eat 25 grams of fiber during the day, you'll feel full and be less likely to snack on empty-calorie foods. But if you need more help to avoid feeling hungry between meals, we have another simple suggestion that works like a charm for adults and kids alike.
Sugar-Free, Mint-Flavored Life Savers
You know how you don't feel like eating right after brushing your teeth? Well, this is mouth chemistry at play. We use the same idea to beat hunger pangs. But instead of whipping out a toothbrush and toothpaste during the middle of the day, we've found that sugar-free, mint-flavored Life Savers create the same not-hungry-now sensation.
Gum works, too. But flavor lasts longer with Life Savers. And it's a bit more polite to not have your jaw moving up and down when you're at work or school. You'll be less obvious with a Life Saver.
