Experiment With Seasonings To Satisfy Your Taste Buds.

I like to use spices and rubs to make my foods more flavorful. I tend to be satisfied with a smaller serving of something that is full of flavor. I use garlic and onion powders, herbs and spices to make meat rubs and to season fresh vegetables before grilling or roasting. I prefer to use seasonings that don't contain alot of added sodium, too. I like mixing sweet and hot flavors together. They are very satisfying. Like grilled pineapple rubbed with a little brown sugar and cayenne. Yum!

Choose Variety Instead of Over-eating on One Thing
I'm not sure why this is, and I haven't read this anywhere; but if I'm going to overeat, usually I keep going after that one dish that tastes so good. I'm finding out that when I "graze" and eat smaller portions of many different healthy things, I'm more satisfied than overeating on one thing. So, I'm less tempted to overeat at all and I walk away with my taste buds quite satisfied. Try it and see if it works for you. 441
Do an experiment. I just read that, after the first three bites of food, our taste buds lose their sensitivity to the food. If that's so, why not just savor those three bites instead of devouring that dessert? Try it, you may save yourself some calories.
