Go to the doctor. If you have a medical condition that controls your weight gain or loss, you will want to find out what you need to do to improve your health. It’s also a good idea to discuss with your doctor any changes you intend to make in your diet.
Replace some stuffed green olives for potato chips when you get the salt craving. It will also give you “good” MUFA fats (monounsaturated fat).
Switch to 60% cocoa dark chocolate when you have a chocolate craving. Chocolate with a lot of sugar added will cause you to eat more.
Do not eat anything within two hours of bedtime.
Drink lots of water and reduce caffeine and soda intake. Studies show diet sodas can enable weight gain.
Eat fruits do not drink it. Instead of a glass of orange juice for breakfast, eat a whole orange. The fiber takes longer for the body to process, and you should have in fewer calories.
Avoid empty calories. If you must eat something, eat something that has nutritional value, which will make you feel full instead to increase appetite. A dozen almonds, about 100 calories, will satisfy and nourish, while 100 calories of potato chips will only make you want to eat more and will not provide nutritional value to your body.
Go grocery shopping. Be prepared to eat healthy. Have healthy snacks and ingredients for well-balanced meals in your pantry and refrigerator. If you are starving, and the only one in the house to eat a bag of cookies, you will eat the cookies.
Do not skip breakfast. Eating breakfast starts your metabolism and will actually help you loose weight.
Share a meal. When eating out, shared a meal with a friend or immediately request a Takeaway box, and box up half the meal and take it home to eat for another meal.
Limit your alcoholic intake. Not only loosen alcohol your sexual inhibitions, loosen also diet issues.
Identify trigger foods. Everyone has a trigger food that they can not resist. Either avoid or prepare limited quantities of your trigger foods.
Drink a fiber drink as Metamucil, on a regular basis. Drink about half an hour before meals, which will feel fuller. Fiber erbra for your body, and it will keep you regularly!
