The tried-and-true habits that have helped you lose weight the right way.
Pick a time after dinner and don't eat after this time. Drink water!
Knocking back the equivalent of about two martinis can reduce your body's fat-burning ability by up to 73%
I couldn't figure out why I was not losing weight after working out 5 days of cardio and 2 days (an hour each) with a trainer after hitting a plateau. Then I realized, I had increased my workout without increasing my calorie intake. I lost the last 5 lbs easy after adding more food to my diet.
When I get the urge to eat something between meals, I chew a piece of gum. It stops me from eating calories that I do not need.
I lose weight when I keep moving!
Just because the portion size is 30g, doesn't mean you need to eat it. Can you have 25g or 20g and still be happy?
I have relied on Stauffer's Chocolate Animal Crackers to get me past the chocolate and sugar cravings. They are only 8 calories each. Sometimes just two or three totally satifies my sweet tooth. I've been buying them for the past 10 months and have lost 50 pounds.
Since I like the crunch of chocolate chips and M & M's I figured I could switch to Chocolate flavored rice cakes to eliminate calories yet still enjoy the chocolaty crunch.
I spent about $20 on a set of pretty white ceramic square salad plates at Kohl's (Food Network brand). I use them for all my meals. One, because everything looks tastier on a pretty plate. And two, since I bought salad plates instead of dinner plates, I eat a lot less even if the plate is full!!
Eating slowly can also help when you are trying to lose weight because it can make you fuller faster. When people eat to fast they consume too much and therefore expand their stomachs. Eating slowly can also look more appealing to the eye than gorging down your food at a table.
