A lot of people tell you to drink water before a meal to fill up and you won't eat as much. But, that does not help me at all. I like food and I love cooking, and I think food is meant to be enjoyed. What helps me is when I plate my food with appropriate portions, eat what I have on my plate then drink water afterwards. I immediately feel full and WON'T get back up for seconds. In fact, I'd feel so full that I would need to take a walk afterwards!
