Try adding fresh ginger and garlic to dishes instead of salt and oil. I use my garlic and ginger daily along with cinnamon, turmeric and other spices. Not only do they taste great, but they have super health promoting properties. Also, replace your salad dressing with salsa or just sprinkle some lemon juice on those greens. It's a great way to cut down excess fat.
In order to eat less and increase your water intake, it is recommended to drink a glass of water before eating. If you don't like water, drop a lemon or lime slice, in the water, it will give some flavour and the lemon will help cut down the fat of the meal.
Don't try to change everything all at once--if you just start by cutting down on fat in your diet, or sugar, or salt--just one thing--you will find that your taste changes and you won't miss it anymore!
