Finally, the truth. Skinny people have a secret. Ten weight loss secrets to be exact. Take their lead and follow these simple guidelines to healthier eating, and weight loss
Weight Loss Tip: 1. Eat your Favorites First::
Skinny people know to eat their favorite parts of each meal first. (This does not mean dessert!) Each meal you cook or eat probably has foods that you like, and one or two that you love. Skinny people know to go right for their favorites first. They know that they may not have room towards the end of the meal to get to those favorite foods.
When you save your favorite foods on the plate for last, you are setting yourself up to overeat, which leads to weight gain, not weight loss. If you are "making" yourself eat everything else first, only to get to the best part last, you risk overeating.
Weight Loss Tip: 2. Seconds are for Suckers::
It takes the stomach 20 whole minutes to tell the brain it’s full. Anyone reaching for seconds before those 20 minutes is up risks overeating. Waiting 20 minutes can help you eat just what the body needs, which can encourage weight loss.
Weight Loss Tip: 3. Variety is Better than Quantity::
Skinny people know the importance of enjoying a variety of different foods with varying tastes, textures and colors. Rather than fill a plate with a large quantity of one or two foods, eat meals that are made with a wide variety of ingredients. This is why soups and salads find their way into the meals of skinny people. Soups and salads offer endless opportunity for adding a variety of tasty foods to any meal. Filling up on bulky roughage and liquid-based soups can help you not overeat and maintain a healthy weight.
Weight Loss Tip: 4. Meals Should be Shared::
Skinny people do not squirrel themselves away to eat. They do not hide their food or their meals. They take pleasure in dining with others, in the social scene that any meal can be. Share a healthy dinner and a weight loss goal with a friend or partner.
Weight Loss Tip: 5. The First Bites of any Food are the Tastiest::
The first few bites of any food are always better than the last few. By savoring and appreciating the flavors and tastes of foods, they are not so concerned with tasting every last bite. The last bite of an ice cream cone is nowhere near as good as the first lick. Weight loss comes from not overindulging.
Weight Loss Tip: 6. Treats are Called Treats for a Reason::
Treats - from chocolate to chips are called treats for a reason. They should not be eaten after every meal, or every day. They are to be enjoyed at the most once a week.
Weight Loss Tip: 7. Food is not a Friend or an Enemy::
Food is not your friend, or your enemy, for that matter. It is inanimate. Skinny people know that food is not their friend. Skinny people know that food is full of nutrients that keep the body going. They would no more get emotional about their next meal than they would about the next time they gas up their car.
Weight Loss Tip: 8. Sugar + Fat is not a Food Group::
Skinny people know that while fat has a place in every diet, combined with sugar, it is not its own food group. Therefore, they know that donuts and Pop tarts are not breakfast.
Weight Loss Tip: 9. Eating Does not Relieve Stress, Exercise Does::
When skinny people feel stressed out, they don't reach for the nearest chocolate bar, bag of chips, or can of soda. They exercise. Food does not relieve stress. Foods may provide a temporary emotional calming, but that is not real stress relief.
Weight Loss Tip: 10. There is no food shortage::
Skinny people don't "stock up" on everything. They are not worried about running out of food. They don't shove snacks in their bags or in their desk drawers, just in case they get hungry. They know there is another meal somewhere later in the day. They just don't worry about it.
There you have it. The 10 things that skinny people know. Some of these may hit home more than others, especially for emotional eaters, or anyone with a borderline eating disorder. Take heart. It's easy to start making small changes right now. No need to wait until Monday. Start with your next meal, and good luck!
