Feel not slim enough? Wanna lose your weight? I've got some tips for ya :D
Everyone knows the keys to losing : Eat less and exercise more. Sounds simple enough, but in the context of real life and its demands, it can be anything but simple. Here's the tips :
1. Drink plenty of plain water or other calorie-free beverages
People sometimes confuse thirst with hunger. So you can end up eating extra calories when an ice-cold glass of water is really what you need. If you don't like plain water, try adding citrus or a splash of juice, or brew infused teas like mango or peach, which have lots of flavor but no calories.
2. Think of what you should add on your diet not what you should take away
Work vegetables into meals instead of just serving them as sides on a plate.
3. Consider whether you're really hungry
Your stomach is only the size of your fist, so it takes just a handful of food to fill it comfortably. Keeping your portions reasonable will help you get more in touch with your feelings of hunger and fullness.
4. Be choosy about night time snacks
Mindless eating occurs most frequently after dinner, when you finally sit down and relax. Sitting down with a bag of chips or cookies in front of the television is an example of eating amnesia, where you mindlessly eat without being hungry, but out of habit
5. Eat several mini-meals during the day
If you eat fewer calories than you burn, you will lose weight. But when you're hungry all the time, eating fewer calories can be challenging. Studies show people who eat 4-5 meals or snacks per day are better able to control their appetite and weight
6. Eat protein at every meal
Diet higher in protein [and] moderate in carbs, along with a lifestyle of regular exercise, have an excellent potential to help weight loss
