Daily soluble-fiber supplements (such as Metamucil and Benefiber) may help you lose weight by curbing your hunger, according to a recent study published in the British Journal of Nutrition. People who took them lost an extra 9 pounds over four months. Experts say eating fiber-rich foods each day can work similar magic. A few to try:

  • Oatmeal (1 cup, cooked, instant or regular)
  • Popcorn (3 cups, air-popped or microwaved)
  • Edamame (1⁄2 cup, cooked)
  • Raspberries (1 cup, fresh or frozen)
  • Potatoes (1 medium with skin, baked or roasted)
