(HealthDay News) -- Experts say to lose a pound a week, you'll need to cut 3,500 calories during that span. But how can you do so without feeling hungry?

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests:

  • Avoid sweetened drinks, and foods with fat and added sugar.
  • Instead of chips, snack on raw vegetables.
  • In lieu of baked goods, enjoy sliced pineapple, oranges or some berries.
  • Avoid alcohol, in favor of a glass of sparkling water.
  • Drink a glass of fat-free chocolate milk, which should satisfy your craving for a candy bar.
