The tried-and-true habits that have helped you lose weight the right way.
SInce I have lost a little over 25 pounds and have been keeping a pretty consistent exercise regimen, and eating healthful foods, I have been able to cut my "every day" Nexium of 5 years to only occasion.
Do not use your calories on drinks. Water is calorie free, add a lemon wedge or some crystal light 0 calorie powder to add some flavor. Pick a flavored light coffee to brew instead of a dark roast. You are less likely to need sugar and/or creamer. Opt for a calorie free sweetener or tea instead.
Drink a cup of warm/cold water with a little bit of fresh squeezed lemon juice and it curves your hunger pangs. I think that the lemon tricks your stomach so it think that it has eaten and will hold keep you satisfied until your next meal.
To help me get in my water every day, I drink one cup of water every time I use the bathroom. This is in addition to the water that I bring with me wherever I go during the day. I usually end up with at least 12 cups of water a day.
Always be sure to drink plenty of water while eating. Not only is it good for you, but it will make you feel full faster. I put my fork down between every bite and take a drink of water; it's made a huge difference!
Drink one large glass of water before you start to eat it will help fill you up. And you want eat as much.
My husband and I now share one meal between the two of us, saving us the expense of two dinners, the extra calories and the misery that comes from overeating.
If you see it you will eat it! Don't take junk home! If you HAVE to have it eat it at work and share with co-workers. If you bring home a pack of cookies you will prob eat all of them. Leave the junk at the door.
Eating 4 x 350-calorie meals (rather than 3 x 500-calorie meals) helps me stay with in my caloric goal and has completely ended the gnawing hunger between meals.
