The never be hungry diet! Fed up of your diets being sabotaged by hunger?

Follow our exclusive weight-loss plan, and curb those naughty food cravings.

Do you start diets full of enthusiasm, positivity and dreams of a Cameron Diaz-esque body - only to end up, well... hungry? A rumbling tummy is one of the most common complaints of people trying to shed excess pounds. And those hunger pangs not only make you feel miserable, they can also ruin your weight-loss plans.
"When you go hungry, your body thinks there's a food shortage, so your metabolism - the body system that governs how quickly you burn calories - slows down and you start to burn less energy," explains Bridget Benelam, a nutrition scientist at the British Nutrition Foundation.
But all is not lost. Scientists have developed a successful dieting formula that won't leave you with that empty belly feeling. It's all down to the discovery of two unsexy-sounding things: energy density and satiety.
"Energy density (ED) is how many calories there are per gram of different foods," explains Bridget. "And satiety is the feeling of fullness we get after eating, which stops us reaching for calorific treats."
The latest evidence suggests that the higher the energy density of the foods you eat, the less satiety you'll feel, and therefore the more likely you are to snack. Likewise, the lower the energy density of the foods, the more satisfied you feel after eating - so it's bye-bye to gorging on biscuits.
Follow our diet for four weeks and you could lose up to half a stone. And if you continue the plan as part of a healthy lifestyle, you'll continue to lose weight safely and slowly, and will therefore stay slim forever - easy!


This plan is based mainly around foods with a low energy density (1.5 calories per gram or less), with just a few medium density ones included, and hardly any high density foods. Choose one breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack each day, and drink 1/2pt (300ml) skimmed milk a day (you can use in cups of tea), in addition to any milk in the menus.
