Top 10 diet tips and tricks
portion caution – This is probably the most important tip. If you are eating more energy than you are burning off then your diet won’t succeed. So make sure that you are not eating too much even if you are only eating healthy food
be realistic – set realistic goals and time frames for your weight loss so that the process isn’t frustrating
slow down – don’t eat too fast. It takes time for the signals to be sent between your stomach and brain to let you know that you are full
eat protein – eat protein at every meal, it helps to keep you full and to slow down the exit of the food out of your stomach
eat low carbohydrate vegetables – these vegetables are a great tool. They are low calorie and help to bulk up your meal in a nutritious way
eat the right carbohydrates – not all carbohydrates are created equal. It is ideal to eat wholegrain, unrefined carbohydrates that are slowly absorbed into your system and that don’t cause huge sugar spikes
cut down on sugar – eating lots of sugar causes sugar spikes which leads to sugar cravings and is often the reason for a diet failing. So stick to unrefined carbohydrates
exercise – the obvious one…. exercise helps to burn calories and increases your metabolic rate
drink enough water – water is a key factor in your metabolism working correctly to don’t forget to drink
eat delicious food – it is my firm belief that if you eat delicious food while you are on diet it makes the diet much easier to follow and sustain. So check out the delicious recipes on this blog for some yummy, healthy inspiration.
