Ask Denise!

Q: It seems as if I'm always hungry. What should I eat to curb my appetite between meals?

A: The best things to eat when you're hungry are fruits and vegetables because they're filling yet low in calories. I also like to drink plenty of water throughout the day to help keep me satisfied. A handful of nuts or a 4-ounce container of low-fat yogurt should do the trick as well (the protein will help tide you over until your next meal). Eating healthy snacks is your best bet, but there are other things you can do to fight those hunger pangs — go for a walk around the block or try doing yoga to improve circulation. Just do something fun to get your mind off food, and remember, you can do it!
