Eat less, but eat better
It’s not always easy to stick to a diet. Especially when the diet guidelines look accusingly at you, annoying you and making you put all the weight back on a few months later. Don’t drastically change your meals, but instead follow these easy slimming tips. And don’t forget, we can never say it enough, to eat a balanced diet and do at least some exercise. Here are 7 secrets to help you eat less, but eat better.
1/ Drink a large glass of water before each meal
This will help prevent you from attacking what’s on your place with a ferocious appetite, gulping it all down too quickly.
2/ Use smaller plates
And fill them up well, to give the impression that you have a feast in front of you!
3/ Take the time to chew and to chat with others at the table
The slower you eat, the better it is for your digestion.
4/ Cut your food into small pieces
This will give the impression that you are eating a large quantity, and in addition, your meal will be easier to digest.
5/ Put your fork on the table after every second mouthful
A tip that allows your stomach to ‘breathe’, and gives your body a chance to digest.
6/ Brush your teeth just after the meal
To quell any urges to reach for the biscuit tin!
7/ Serve your food on a red plate
According to recent studies, the colour red has the power to temper the appetite. You don’t believe it? Change your dishes and see for yourself!
