When trying to lose weight many people believe that the most successful way will result from counting calories. Counting calories not only takes extra time but also doesn’t work effectively. Rather than seeing results, people are just obsessing over counting. The following tips will help you slim down much more successfully.
- Get cookin’. By cooking your own meals, you know exactly what is going into your body. Restaurants often load up on sugars and salt that we are unaware of which results in eating unhealthy. Also, the portion sizes at restaurants are much larger than the recommended size. Not only can you control the ingredients in your meals but also how much you are eating.
- Don’t drink your calories. In order to successfully knock off a few pounds we must consider our caloric intake from drinks. Sodas, even diet sodas, are high in sugar and calories. Lose weight by cutting back on sugary drinks, and alcohol.
- Snack time. The most effective way to lose weight is by eating small meals throughout the day rather than three large meals. This means that you should allow yourself to snack. This doesn’t mean eat a box of cookies, rather eat a healthy snack between meals to eat less at meal time. Some healthy snack ideas are, granola bars, fruit, or nuts.
- Smaller plate. It is possible to fool your brain into eating less than you normally would by using a smaller plate. By using a smaller plate, you will eat less and feel fuller faster. Give it a try and see if you are tricked!
- Still read labels. By reading labels for nutrients rather than calories, we are more aware of what we are putting into our bodies. Be more cautious of the amount of sugar and carbs rather than the number of calories. Click here for a helpful tool for label reading.
