High-fiber foods generally take longer to chew. This gives your body time to register when you're no longer hungry, so you're less likely to overeat. And high-fiber foods tend to have fewer calories for the same volume of food. So you feel full on fewer calories. Choose whole grains and whole-grain products, fruits and vegetables, and beans, peas and other legumes.
