8. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. Nearly every major healthorganization makes this simple suggestion, since most fruits and veggies are nutritious and naturally low in fat and calories.

9. Cut down on soda and other sugary drinks. Soft drinks provide a lot of hidden calories without making you feel full. For every cup of soda you replace with water, you'll reduce your caloric intake by about 100 calories.
