12 Weird Ways to Halt Hunger

These inventive–but OK, a little weird –tactics from the 8-Hour Diet can help keep your inner Cookie Monster in check and stop you from binge eating.

Drink to your health

Your grande mocha with whipped cream delivers a pretty nasty calorie blow, but some drinks can help you sip yourself slim by filling you up without filling you out. Our picks:

Water: Thirst often masks itself as hunger, so a cool glass of H2O might actually curb cravings.

Green Tea: It’s been shown to suppress appetite and aid in fat burning.

Oolong tea: One study found that drinking a cup an hour before you work out increases your fat oxidation by 12 percent.

Black tea: A study in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition found that black tea decreases blood sugar levels by 10 percent for 2 1/2 hours, so you’ll feel fuller and avoid hunger later.
