The tried-and-true habits that have helped you lose weight the right way.
Drink water, lots of it. Before you start to eat your meal drink some water. Then while you are eating drink more water. It is hard to get off of flavored drinks but once you get use to having water with your meal you will notice how much less calories you are taking it by just drinking water!
Drinking eight glasses of water really helps. Sometimes your body can get thirst and hunger mixed up. When you feel hungry between meals, try drinking water first, wait ten minutes and if you are still hungry, have a healthy snack.

Keep either prefilled or refillable water bottles in the car, at your desk, near your bed. If they are handy you are less likely to buy that soda, and more likely to get your required H2O intake.
If you don't add butter, creams, or ham hocks in, you can make a 15 bean soup mix last a long time. And it's so filling? YOu can season it sweet, salty, spicy, garlicky, any way you want.
I am loving this right now.
i use altoids and raw almonds to avoid bad snack attacks. If I have a craving sucking on an altoid and like brushing teeth it stops tastes from being pleasant. Almonds a small hand full keeps my appetite at bay
