You may have heard of various methods to stave off hunger as you attempt to lose weight. One technique you can try is Jell-O with water. The Jell-O will fill you up as a way to keep you from overeating.

Step 1

Purchase a sugar-free flavor of Jell-O. You don’t need to buy the name brand version; any type of dry gelatin mix will work as long as it is sugar free. Some flavors typically available are strawberry, cherry, lemon, orange and grape.

Step 2

Pour the complete package into an eight ounce glass or mug. Add ¾ of a cup of boiled water to the mug.

Step 3

Stir the Jell-O and water until all of the powder crystals have been completely dissolved. You may wish to breathe in the aroma of the gelatin at this point.

Step 4

Add two to three ice cubes to the mug. This will cool it down enough for you to drink. Then consume the entire concoction in order for it to take effect.

Step 5

Adjust your diet. The gelatin mixed in water is intended to give you a full feeling and ideally should be consumed three times a day prior to meals. After drinking, you should be able to eat more sensible portions of food. Most of your meals should be made up of whole grains, vegetables and lean proteins, such as turkey, chicken and beans. For snacks, consume pieces of fruit.

Things You'll Need

  • Sugar Free Jell-O

  • Hot Water

Warning

If you would like to try this method, you should first speak to your doctor.
