One thing I have been doing is eating a small snack about 15-20 minutes before I eat a meal or if I have gone long stretches without eating. Eating a snack like that gives metabolism a boost and you are not dumping 500 calories of food into your system when your metabolism in not burning at 100%.
High Protein Low calorie Snacks
My goto snack that is lower in calories ( under 100 calories) and has protein is yogurt. Most of the no sugar added one have about 35 calories in them so I will have 1 or two of these. I do prefer yogurt make with Splenda and I avoid aspartame
