13. Munch on pre-dinner veggies.

If you are a pre-dinner muncher, snack on only veggies. If you don't usually eat anything, try a plate of veggies before dinner to help curb your appetite. With fewer than half of all Americans eating the minimum number of servings daily, it's time to make vegetables a daily appetizer at dinner. Limiting your pre-dinner chow to low-calorie veggies will help take the edge off your appetite, but not at the expense of your hips. Dress up baby carrots, pepper sticks, celery, and broccoli florets by dunking them in salsa, low fat salad dressings, flavored mustards, and relishes.
