See Dr., and then...: Maybe a diet higher in healthy proteins; plus natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories such as carrots, celery, and leafy green lettuce (little or no salad dressing). When buying fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, as fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, but do avoid sugar and simple starch calories.
