Overeating can be a little difficult to avoid. You try hard enough not to overeat and so far we have been successful doing this at home but then you head outside and you are surrounded by all sorts of foods. It can be tempting to eat and eat while outside, especially if you are with your friends who are not minding their diet.

If you are one of those people who seems to forget their diet whenever they tastes delicious food, here are the foods you can try that are good in controlling your appetite.

Apples

Perhaps, you are already well-aware about the wonders of eating apple. But aside from the several benefits it can provide us with, this wonder fruit can also help us in maintaining our weight. One large apple has about 5 grams of fiber and this makes you feel full longer, thus, reducing your appetite for food. Other than that, it is also known to reduce belly fat because apple contains polyphenol which is important in boosting metabolism and it has zero side effects.
