There are many tricks used by restaurants, supermarkets and advertising specialists to manipulate us that we can turn to our advantage. Here are some ways to help you cut down your portions and help keep you losing weight.
1 Out of sight, out of mind.
Hide sweet and salty snacks somwhere that is harder for you to reach. Also, do not leave kitchenware for quick cooking, such as a toaster or cutting board, on the kitchen counter. Keeping cookies within reach and within your sight will increase snacking and will not allow you to focus on preparing your healthy dinner.
2. Smaller plate is a key
Smaller plates can cut your servings by almost a third. A tall and narrow glass will do the same it will allow you to drink for example less wine Thanks to this, you will reduce the amount of calories consumed.
3. Cook and eat at home!
You will eat fewer calories and snacks throughout the day if you prepare your meals at home. Going to restaurants frequently or eating out quickly can increase the amount of calories you eat. Your brain relaxes in a restaurant and it is very easy to stop controlling what you decide to put on your plate.
4. Avoid the TV while eating
It has long been known that while watching TV we automatically tend to eat more. The more exciting a program you turn on, the greater the risk that you will eat a really large portion. If you decide to eat in front of the TV, measur your consumption and try to use healthy snacks!
