To help me feel full and aid in digestion, I try to drink a cup of green tea after each meal.
It has become a positive habit that also "signals" the end of a meal for me, so if I feel a binge or temptation coming on, I'll sneak in an extra cup of tea first. And 9 times out of 10, I no longer want the tempting treat!
Also, experiment with different types of green tea to find one that perks your taste buds. For me, that's Tazo's "Zen" which has hints of lemongrass and spearmint.

Love to snack at night while winding down from the day?? Drink hot tea...there are so many flavors, focusing only on the flavor of the tea will fill you up (water), calm you down, and can please taste buds...just watch how much sugar or milk you may add...I think it's best plain!
I have found that drinking Green Tea is helping - I have 3 - 6 cups a day along with at least 8 - 10 pints of water. Green Tea is proven to aid with weight loss as well as having other health benefits - also the caffeine found in Green tea is dramatically lower than black tea & coffee which of course means less caffeine happier body!!
