You’re Starving an Hour Before Lunch: Eat An Apple

The five grams of fiber in a medium apple will take the edge off your hunger -- and according to research from Pennsylvania State University, it may actually help you eat less at your meal. When people noshed on an apple before lunch, they took in 187 calories less than those who didn’t (even after accounting for the calories in the apple). But researchers say having the whole fruit is key: People who ate applesauce or drank fiber-fortified apple juice first didn’t slash their intake nearly as much. Why? Experts say eating an apple requires more chewing, which can trigger a greater feeling of fullness.
