Every dieter knows how hard it is to stick to a diet, whatever one's motivation may be. It is always easy for dieters to find a reason to sabotage their efforts, whether they are in it for health reasons or simply to be just slim enough to be able to fit in that wedding dress a month from now.

Apparently, one of the top reasons why dieters cheat on their diets is hunger pang according to Health Magazine. Chronic hunger could be an indicator that their diets are inadequate in unbalanced making their body resist the weight loss by sending the signal to eat more.

Fortunately, this dieting trap is also very easy to address. Nutrition experts recommend dieters to eat food rich in protein and fiber which should prolong satiety and keep hunger and cravings at bay.

To assist dieters, CheatSheet compiled the top six foods that are up to this task.

1.Bean Soup

Pulses or legumes have been shown to significantly assist dieters. They are so effective that even adding a mere 130 grams a day to one's diet could trigger weight reduction even if no other dietary changes are done. The reason for this is that beans and lentils are high in dietary fibers making them more filling, reducing the need to snack more often.

2.Popcorn

Dieters who are fond of eating late night snacks while watching their favorite shows would do well if they replace whatever their current snacking food with popcorn. Popcorn is also filling and would take a lot of room in the stomach without filling it up with too much calorie. Just don't choose the caramelized variety as they are bad due to the added sugar content.

3.Canned Salmon

Dieters who love fish would be better off if they reach out for canned salmon when the hunger kicks in. Salmon have high protein content which makes them more filling. In addition, being a fish, they are a healthier alternative to meat-based options.

4.Baked Potatoes

Yes, they are high in carbohydrates but potatoes are more filing than the regular bread. For this to work, dieters might want to avoid butter and sour creams as toppings.

5.Apples

An apple a day is good, especially for dieters. First, apple is a fruit and everybody knows how healthy fruits are.  In addition, apple is high in fiber which makes it filling making dieters forget about munching on other unhealthy food items. And lastly, an apple is low in calorie that a fruit is only around 100 calories.

6.Eggs

Eggs are excellent food for dieters. They are high and complete in protein content, meaning they have all nine amino acids that the body cannot manufacture. In addition, it has been shown that the protein in eggs actually a trigger hormone secretion that helps suppress one's appetite.
