Adding new habits to your daily routine can help you reach your goal easily and permanently. Start by taking small steps without thinking about the bigger picture.
Go small start by giving yourself smaller portions rather than dramatically changing what you eat. Use smaller plates: research shows that smaller plates look as if they contain more food than larger plates, and eating with smaller cutlery encourages you to take smaller mouthfuls. Eat slowly, chew your food more and put down your cutlery between mouthfuls to give yourself a chance to notice when you’re full.
Get enouGh sleep
sleep allows your body to release the appetitesuppressant leptin, which also affects your body temperature, increasing the amount of calories burned. being sleep deprived means you don’t produce enough leptin, but you overproduce ghrelin – a hormone which increases feelings of hunger.
throw out the scales
your weight is subjective, fluctuates for many reasons and isn’t a good indicator of how healthy you are anyway. Instead, measure the parts of you that you’d like to be slimmer (arms, waist, thighs) because the chances are you actually want to be slimmer, not lighter. remeasure these areas in a month’s time. Losing just a few centimetres means you’re moving in the right direction and can be optimistic that you’re doing the right thing.
