embrace the dark...
...when you’re asleep, that is. Sleeping in a bedroom that’s too light can cause an increase in both BMI (body mass index) and waist size, according to a study on more than 113,000 women*. Metabolism is affected by cyclical rhythms within the body that relate to sleeping, waking and light exposure, so sleeping in a totally dark room, every night, is the best scenario for your bod – inside and out.
Avoid white plates
A University of Valencia study found that eating from white plates made your food taste 7% sweeter, 9% more enjoyable and 13% more flavoursome. So if you’re having a dinner party, great, get out the white plates. But if you’re dining in for one and want to shed a few pounds, choose a darker shade of china.
Post-dinner mints aren’t just good at freshening your breath, they also put you off eating anything else. Alternatively, a study at the University of Rhode Island found that chewing sugar-free gum resulted in participants consuming 68 fewer calories at lunch, resisting more cravings, and burning around 5% more calories than non-gum chewers.
Hot and spicy
Researchers from the University of California found that eating chilli peppers helps reduce your waistline as the heat raises your metabolism and burns
away the fat.
