Practical Tips to Lose Weight

Plenty of trendy diets can make you lose considerable weight in a short period. However, they will leave you feeling hungry and deprived and most probably, you will regain your weight once you stopped dieting.

Adopt these simple tweaks to your lifestyle to lose weight slowly and irreversibly:

  1. Close the kitchen at night:

Establish a time when you will stop eating so you will not give in to the late night snacking while watching television

  • Brush your teeth after dinner directly:

 You will be less likely to eat or drink anything else during the evening

  • Pay attention to liquid Calories:

Sweetened drinks contain huge amount of calories. Satisfy your thirst with water, sparkling water with citrus or tea

  • Control your options:

Stock your kitchen with lots of healthy options and avoid stocking chips, cakes and biscuits

  • Eat a healthy and light salad before going out:

You will not be starving and you will be selective when you fill your plate at the buffet

  • Reduce your portions by 10%-20%:

Most of the portions served in restaurants are bigger than you need

  • Eat in small plates:

Smaller plates help you eat less food

  • Switch to lighter alternatives:
  • Use hummus as a dip instead of cheddar cheese
  • Spread sandwiches with mustard instead of mayo
  • Use skimmed milk instead of cream in your coffee
  • Use a vinaigrette on your salad instead of creamy dressing
