If you’ve been controlling your cravings by starving yourself, you’ve been doing it wrong. Correct diet doesn’t work that way. Rather, it’s about eating enough to provide your body the energy it needs for your day to day work, in the healthiest way possible. This means you’re going to eat more healthy foods, while keeping away the guilty treats.
There are ways to diet without having to avoid eating more than three meals a day. Expert bodybuilder Chris Aceto shares some rules to control your appetite on Flex:

6 Surprising Ways To Control Your Appetite & Lose Weight
It’s hard not to eat too much — believe me, I know! You spend all day passing up sodas, donuts, pizza and chips … but after a while, you get hungry and everything you’ve worked so hard to avoid just looks so tempting and you give in and have something you know you shouldn’t be eating. Read more…
The “front door snack” technique can be helpful. The world is full of temptations the moment you step out of your house. It just makes sense to eat something that will keep you full, while loading your body with essential nutrients, beforehand.

Top 7 Foods to Reduce Your Appetite and Make You Feel Fuller
Do you want to eat healthy foods or are you trying to lose weight? Whatever your reasons are, you must be having trouble keeping your appetite and hunger at bay. But worry no more because there are foods that you can eat to help keep those hunger pangs away for much longer. Read more…
So the next time you’re itching to eat that extra slice of pizza when you know you’re already full, just remember these rules to control your appetite. They will come in handy when you’re drooling in front of a lot of unhealthy foods.
But remember that there’s a difference between hunger and craving. Hunger is a need, while craving is just a want. Listen to your body. Controlling your cravings is bad if you know you’re already starving yourself to death. Sometimes, it’s not about how much you eat that contributes to fat, but rather on what you eat.
In addition to that, it’s better to consume small meals throughout the day instead of three full and heavy meals. Heavy meals usually result into a food coma, which is the sleepiness, laziness, bloating and gas you feel right after you overindulged.
