If you want to reduce your weight but you cannot get rid of your eating habit then you should apply such tricks that will deceiver your stomach. You will never be able to lose weight if you keep eating a lot of food.
The first principle to get fit is to control your eating habit. There are many ways to eat less and I’m going to share 10 simplest tricks to eat less with you.
1 – Drink First
One of the best ways to trick your stomach into eating less is drinking water before eating anything. Let us assume that you are ready to eat your lunch but you drink two glasses of water before start eating. The water will tell your stomach that there is not enough space left to eat a lot of food this way, you will not only eat less but stay hydrated too.
2 – Eat half and get rest packed
If you are eating in a restaurant then you should ask the waiter to bring half portion of the food and pack the rest. This way, you will eat half the food. You will also have some food left in your fridge so you can eat it later.
3 – Eat Consciously
While you are eating your food, you should not be doing anything else. Try to avoid any other work while you are eating and it will help you eat less food and feel fulfilled easily. You should not be watching television or talking to your friends while eating.
4 – Eat less frequently
Instead of eating a lot of food at the same time, you should rely on small snacks. For instance, you should eat something after every four hours. This way, not only you will eat less but your stomach will get enough time to digest the food that you have eaten.
5 – Take Your Time
Another great tip to eat less is taking your time while eating your food. You should not be in hurry while eating because this way, you will eat a lot in a short period of time. Take a bite and chew it properly in your mouth. This will really help you eat less and feel completely satisfied too.
6 – Don’t wait for a message from your body
If you are eating food, your body will only tell you to stop when you have overeaten. The best way to eat less is to take small bites, chew them properly and take your time to enjoy the food. Your body needs at least 20 minutes to process your food properly to the digestive system.
7 – Take a look at your fist
If you want to know about the size of your stomach and how much food it can manage at a time, take a look at your fist. The size of your fist is the same size of your stomach. Always consider this thing before you start eating. I hope, this will help you a lot.
8 – Don’t keep sweets in your drawer
We often keep candies and chocolates in our drawers while we are working. This is not a good habit at all. You should know that sweets contain large amount of calories that are not easy to burn.
9 – Divide Food in your plate
If you have a full plate of sushi in front of you, it doesn’t mean that you are obliged to finish the entire plate. Take a look at your fist and then divide the food in your plate. Eat only as much food as your stomach can process easily at a time.
10 – Rewards Yourself
I know that it is not easy to follow all the tips that I have shared above. To keep yourself on track, you should give yourself a reward every week. It is okay to eat some good food and eat it a lot once in a week.
