Losing weight is always a herculean task especially for those individuals who have been hearing weight loss advices from all corners of the world. They try and test different methods only to realize that those methods have either not worked or you ended up gaining weight in your zest.
When it comes to weight loss tips, everywhere there are talks about going for limited serving sizes, eating healthy vegetables and fruits, and exercising regularly.
However, there are still other diet-tips which are less-known. I present you some diet-tips which involve ways of eating, and adding certain foods to your diet. Other tips include implementing new food behaviors and strategies to help you stick to your weight loss goals.
Variety is the culprit:
They always say that when you are at a buffet, you can take a bite of everything. However, the fact is variety makes you eat more. Researchers found that when participants, in a study, were offered French fries they ate less. However, when the accompaniments catsup and mayonnaise were provided along with the fries, they ate more than what they ate when fries were offered solely.
Those who have successfully lost weight tend to eat diets having limited variety.
Barley is Beautiful:
Replace your oatmeal with barley. The carbs in the barley and rye kernel have a low glycemic index which implies that they raise the blood sugar more slowly than other carbohydrate foods. Go for hulled barely rather than going for pearl barley. This is because the hulled version is less processed than the pearl one.
Decorate Your Lunch Salad:
One of the biggest mistakes ,those aiming at weight loss, make is using little or no dressing at all on their salad because this leaves them starved by mid-afternoon. If you add a little protein and some fat it can help you feel full for a longer time. Add two tablespoons of light salad dressing to your salad dressing so that you don’t end up munching on unhealthy snacks by 3 p.m.
Fill your freezer section with frozen goodies:
By goodies I mean vegetables. Yes, it’s true that fresh is better than frozen but when faced with a choice of grabbing a packet of chips and scraping, washing, and cutting carrots, you will definitely go for the unhealthy chips. Buy all the fresh veggies and keep them frozen in a ready-to-eat state.
If you want to go a step ahead, you can cook the veggies ahead of time before freezing them. When you want to have them or add to a salad, all you need to do is just grab a handful of them.
Keep unhealthy snacks out of reach:
Never keep chocolates or ice creams on the front shelves of your fridge or at any place where they are easily accessible. Even when it comes to cookies, keep them stacked at a place which you can access with too many efforts. In short, keep only healthy snacks within your reach.
