Sound familiar? Not to worry. Max Lugavere, bestselling author of Genius Foods, has some useful tips.

"To lose weight, you generally need to reduce your daily calorie intake," Max wrote in an Instagram post. "Unfortunately, weight loss diets often lead to increased appetite and severe hunger.

"Once you make healthier shifts to your eating, your hunger will automatically begin to self-regulate — no need for 'control' whatsoever!" he said.
