    What is the best way to lose weight without going hungry?

    Make healthier food choices, gradually cut down to normal portion sizes (measure if you have to...most people have no concept of what a single serving is), drink lots of water (the body often feels hungry when dehydrated), and get plenty of exercise. If you start feeling hungry, add in more fiber...anything that makes you persistently hungry is not likely to help with permanent weight loss, because it's a good sign that your body thinks it's not getting enough nutrients and is eating your muscle instead of fat.

    Exercise.. exercise.. heard of the old saying no gain without pain, we can modify it to no loss without pain also. Water, fiber, whole grains, sprouts,lean meats and patience

    Hi Charles K,
    There isn't really any way to stop the hunger totally - although I do agree with the 2 answers you've had so far. 
    Little and regular bursts of exercise can help though - you know - getting up from your desk or chair and having a coupla minutes movement.

    Even when the weight has gone it's pretty difficult keeping it off.  I know - I've tried many many times.
    My personal trick is to just keep on 'watching-it'.
    Go on a diet (a sensible one), lose the weight and try keeping tit off.  However if (and as soon as) you notice the weight going back on - go back on the diet.

    Losing weight without counting calories? Without starving or depressed? And most importantly, without regaining the lost pounds when you stop the diet? We all dream!

    That is why it is urgent to discover the GI diet (Glycemic Index for).
    The principle: eat to satiety but clever, in distinguishing foods that will be burned by the body, and those who will land directly on the hips. And guess what? Lots of fun foods, like cheese or chocolate, are allowed.

    I am on a high protein diet, mediocre fat and low carb diet. I have lost 10 pound in 10 days. I need to lose another 20 pounds, which will take around 9 to 10 weeks.

    This works great for me. I never get hungry as the protein fills me up for longer, along with the vegetables and the fat's I consume give me a steady energy level.

    All good answers here but sometimes it takes the right answer that will work for you and your lifestyle and food preferences so I'll offer this: keep a stash of ready to eat veggies to eat when you are hungry. They'll stave off hunger with very few calories.

    Here are some ideas:
    braised artichoke
    bell pepper
    lettuce leaves (dipped in low-fat yogurt dressing)
    green beans

    Eat plain or with a little salt or a low-fat yogurt dip.

    I would recommend protein and vegetables.  The protein keeps you satisfied and the fiber from your veggies will help too.

    you need to eat healthier food, such as fruits and vegetables. It doesn't matter how much you eat you'll never get fat.

    Consuming whole foods and avoiding processed and sugary foods.

    I agree with the low-GI strategy. I eat a modified carb diet to manage my blood sugar. Whole fruit, vegetables, whole grains and legumes provide energy and satisfy the appetite.I consume protein with every meal and snack, in small quantities. I eat five to six times a day.

    Reasonable fat intake helps too -- people have been gaining weight on low-fat processed foods. Having olive oil, nuts in moderation, dark chocolate, Greek yogurt, olives and avocado adds variety to my meals and satisfies my hunger. I've lost most of my freelancing weight gain -- over the winter, no less.
