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.
