The greatest weight-loss strategies are the ones you can fit your body and life. So go ahead and take your pick!
1. Drink a lot of water
Many people often mistake thirst for hunger. Aim to drink at least eight 8 glasses of water per day. Regularly drinking water allows your body to filter out toxins as well as can help you feel full. And, drinking water has the added benefit of clearer skin.
Serving your meals on a smaller plate will give you the illusion that you are eating more food. Dining with smaller plates, cups, bowls, and spoons will force you to savor your meal, and give your body the time it needs to register that you’re full.
3. Get enough sleep
Did you ever notice that when you’re sleepy, you tend to eat more? Your observation is backed by science: Studies have shown that tired people put more food in their mouths. So get enough sleep to avoid packing on the weight.
4. Journal Your Food
Keep a log of everything you eat including the amount, calories and time. Journaling forces you to be honest with yourself about how much you’re eating. This process will also enable you to recognize unhealthy patterns in your eating habits that you can cut out.
5. Eat a good breakfast
Eat a heavy-on-protein breakfast every day, and you’ll control your hunger long into the day. For breakfast consider eggs, yogurt, or peanut butter. And, don’t let more than three hours pass between eating. Be sure to have small snacks available to eat between meals.
