Eating enough protein, vegetables and wholegrains at dinner can help you stay fuller for
longer - but if you had a light meal, have a small fruit salad with low fat yoghurt after.
Greek Yoghurt is a great option as it has been shown to decrease hunger effectively.
Another trick to stop the pesky cravings instantly is by brushing your teeth shortly after having dinner.
'Remember you ate dinner and your body is full. It is just your mind playing tricks with you - unless you are breastfeeding and then you are probably hungry so have an extra snack,' they said.
But if you're feeling peckish, treat yourself to a few frozen grapes or raspberries because that will take a while to get through.
'Make sure you do not have any junk food in the house so that you have no temptation,' they said.
