8 Clever Diet Tricks From Weight Loss Superstars

Eat Before You Eat


If Doree knows she is going out to a late dinner or party, she nibbles on a light snack an hour or two before the event to help take the edge off her hunger. This way, she’s not so ravenous by the time she gets to the restaurant that she orders a gigantic entrée and eats to the point of being stuffed. Her favorite pre-meal nibbles are nonfat Greek yogurt, which is packed with filling protein, and fiber-rich non-starchy veggies, like a few handfuls of baby carrots. Strategic snacking helped Doree stick to her healthy eating plan — and today she’s 104 pounds lighter as a result!
