1. Drink water and avoid liquid calories
Not only is water good for you and cleansing to the system, but it can help you to feel full. Quite often if you think you’re hungry, you’re actually slightly dehydrated. And drinking alcohol and fizzy drinks should be avoided if possible since they are just providing empty calories.
2. Snack, but smartly.
If you’re a snacker then don’t try to change the habits of a lifetime. But just be a little choosier. Have fruits and vegetables handy, buy nuts and breadsticks and make a more sensible choice.
3. Exercise and be physically active
One of the keys to weight loss is to move more. So get up and be active! Build exercise into your daily routine so that it doesn’t feel like a hardship. The endorphins will soon make you look forward to it.
4. Think about whether you’re really hungry or not
Are you simply eating because you’re bored and have nothing better to do? Eating can sometimes be a hard habit to break. Find yourself something active to do when you feel hungry, even if it’s just doing the washing or walking to the postbox.
5. Don’t cut out all the food that you enjoy
You will be miserable if you take away all your treats and misery often leads to comfort eating. Just make sure that you ration yourself, hold your will power and don’t go overboard. And congratulate yourself if you make some smart changes.
