But give a bottle that is BPA-free, says John Morton, MD, chief of Yale Medicine Bariatric Surgery. If it costs a bit more, it's worth it, he says, because BPA, or Bisphenol A, is an industrial chemical that is considered to be not only a carcinogen, but an obesogen (an umbrella term for environmental factors that contribute to weight gain).

When you are hungry for a high-calorie snack, take a big drink of water, then wait 15 minutes to see if you feel better.
