You have tried various diets, but you still have some extra pounds to lose? If those haven’t helped you yet, we offer you a few great tips without special rules or strict diets.

Eat more

It is strange, but true. Bigger portions will make you feel satiated for a longer period of time and because of that you will eat less. It is important to include fruits and vegetables in daily nutrition because they contain less calories than the food rich in carbohydrates.

Read food declaration and its composition

Many studies have shown that women who regularly read food declaration and the composition of food products have lower BMI (body mass index) than the ones who don’t pay attention to this type of labels. Approximate weight difference between these two types of women is 6 kilograms or 13 pounds.

Reduce fats, regain your youthful look and get a slim figure without starvation!

Cut food into slices

People who cut food into slices eat less and feel equally satiated as the ones who don’t have this habit. So try to cut meat, dough, fruit or any other food into slices before you start eating it.

Think about what you eat

One recent study has proven that people who think about food eat healthier and less. If you have a habit of eating in front of TV, make a change and start eating at the table and pay close attention to what is served on the plate.

Listen to jazz

Strange but true, music that you listen to may also affect your body weight. For example, jazz music has a positive effect on your body because while listening to it you might eat 175 calories less than you usually do.

Don’t skip meals

Although you have already heard for numerous times that skipping meals is not good, we are going to mention it one more time just in case. When it comes to skipping meals you will usually choose food that is rich in carbohydrates and rarely decide to eat fruits and vegetables. Thus you intake even 20 % more calories than you do when you have regular meals.

Drink cold water

A famous singer J. Lo allegedly drinks iced water only. Some fitness experts consider drinking iced water a smart habit because a cold water speeds up our metabolism and burns more calories.

Fast food pictures

A research has shown that fast food pictures can awaken the desire for food even more than other groceries and dishes.
