Honestly? I've gotten best results in (1) eliminating empty calories, (2) exercising regularly, (3) CUTTING OUT SUGAR, and (4) limiting carbs, especially white bread, white potatoes, and white rice. Those convert straight to sugar. I do this by (5) eating plenty of good fats, (6) eating lots of protein, and (6) staying hydrated.

The higher proteins, no sugar, and limited white carbs will really help to curb your appetite. I would do this all the time if I had better teeth and could afford it.
