Tips to control your Weight
1. Substitute Water
Our body constitutes of 65-70% water. It follows that water would be not only essential, but the best possibly choice of liquids to ingest. In fact, our bodies will sometimes simulate a hunger response, when in reality the body is craving hydration. When hungry, drink a glass or two of water to check if it suppresses your hunger.
2. Chew Your Food
Chewing our food very slowly and deliberately has several benefits that are often overlooked. It gives us the ability to relax, and enjoy our meal. Slow chewing is the first, and highly important, step in a complex system of digestion. Besides, if we eat slowly, we might feel full before finishing the whole meal, and can leave the rest for the next meal.
3. Exercise daily
Exercise is obvious. A 30 day trial with waking up, and walking for 30 minutes first thing in the morning yields faster results.
4. Publicize your intentions
Start a blog, join a forum, and have other people keep you accountable to help. Tell other people your plan, it would help you get the motivation to go with it!
5. Create a food schedule
Plan your day so that youre eating at approximately the same time each day. This scheduling will incorporate itself into your circadian rhythm, and aid in digestion.
6. Do not over eat
Know your limit and stop eating when you are full. I have often been a victim of wanting to finish a meal so that it doesnt go to waste. This has left me with many a stomach ache. Next time, doggy bag it for later, and dont hurt yourself!
7. Choose your snacks wisely
Put down the Lays and cheese puffs. Pick up the apple and baby carrots. Make the right decision, I know you can do it.
