Diet - Useful Dieting tips.
Here I have assembled some different tips to make things a little easier for you along the way. Many people will use the things in their eating environment to force them not to eat such a huge amount, or to eat healthier. In the end it won’t matter so much as how you made the diet work, only that it worked, so be quick to come up with ideas as you progress through your diet to make you not have to work as hard.
One simple solution is to use a smaller plate, sounds pretty easy right? The way our brain works in this is simple, we see a huge plate in front of us we feel as though if we don’t fill it with food, we won’t get full. This creates a simple way of tricking ourselves into eating less, just use a smaller plate and fill it that way you feel like you’re eating a lot yet only eating the same smaller amount you wanted to eat. While eating make sure to chew longer before swallowing, other than doing the obvious, this will also allow more time to pass during your meal and cause you to tire of eating sooner than you usually would. By making a meal take longer, and sitting for 3-5 minutes after finishing a serving, you will give your brain some time to interact with your stomach and understand that you are full. This is a proven fact, most people that get up for a second serving were already full, they just didn’t allow themselves the time to let their brain really understand it.
Another thing to help you by stopping you from eating bad foods like chocolate candy, is to find the natural alternatives. These days you can find them for almost anything, for a long time chocolate has been easily substituted with all natural carob. When dried, carob will have a taste quite similar to chocolate, but without all the added calories. You might want to do some quick research online to see if there is a natural alternative to any food you enjoy eating that would still fit in your diet.
Then there is also the easiest thing to add to any diet, negative calorie foods. If you were to eat a few celery sticks for instance, your body will now end up using more calories to burn off the celery, then the celery actually contains (around 20 calories per cup).
