There’s no way around it: To lose weight, you need to cut calories. But eating less is a surefire way to feel dissatisfied after every meal. Instead of shrinking your portions, bulk up meals with foods that will fill you up without weighing you down, like fruits, vegetables, and low-fat dairy, suggests Barbara Rolls, PhD, author of The Ultimate Volumetrics Diet and director of the Laboratory for the Study of Human Ingestive Behavior at Penn State University. These healthy eats pack fewer calories per bite than higher-fat fare, like nuts, dark chocolate, bacon, and butter. The tips that follow will teach you the basics of adding volume—and subtracting calories—from your meals. (Related: Avoid Foods That Make You Do Bad Things)
