‘Tis the season for pumpkin spice everything, and chances are your cravings for the trendy seasonal flavor are getting out of control. But as it turns out, you can use your appetite for pumpkin-y deliciousness to drop pounds—yup, we’re serious.

Since pumpkin is a great source of fiber, you can use it in creative ways to fill up and give your digestive system a boost, says Abby Langer, R.D. “These flavors are typically associated with indulgent items such as pie, lattes, and other festive goodies,” says Langer—but you can also use them to make health-conscious eats just taste decadent. And the more flavorful your food, the more satiated you’ll be, says Brigitte Zeitlin, R.D., a dietitian at B Nutritious.
