Summary: Including these small, effortless habits in your diet and lifestyle can help boost your weight loss process.
These tips can help ease your weight loss and make you feel full faster.
Set a timer
Every time you have a meal, set your timer to 20 minutes and try not to finish your meal before the alarm goes off. This is important because when you eat too quickly, your stomach doesn’t have enough time to tell your brain that it’s full. This makes you overeat.
Get more sleep
Research has supported the claim that those who sleep less than 7 hours per night have significantly increased appetites. In addition, getting more sleep takes away from time spent snacking and being inactive.
Include soup in your meals
Starting your meal with soup helps you feel full sooner, but watch out for creamy soups because these can have high fat content and can be high in calories. Always look at the nutritional facts label.
Cut back on the soda
Try replacing soda with water. If you prefer having a flavorful drink, you can squeeze in some lemon and mint for a refreshing taste.
When eating out in a restaurant, we tend to be attracted by appetizing images and order food that is high in calories. You can, however, for example, order an appetizer for a meal and have a salad on the side. You can also have the restaurant give you half the meal in a doggie bag before you start eating.
