Need to Learn How to Get Slimmer? Here are Some New Tricks You May Not Have Known Before
Do you want to get slimmer? Let me show you how to do just that! You need to start cutting your food portions by 10% to 20%, starting today. Portion control will help you to achieve your goal of getting slimmer. This is because most of the food portions served in restaurants and our homes are bigger than we need. So what happens when all that food is sitting on your plate? You feel compelled to eat it. Pull out the measuring cups to get a handle on your usual portion sizes, and start paring them down. Another tip is to use small bowls, plates, and cups for your usual dining. If you cannot control serving portions, you must develop the will power to leave something on your plate.
Studies have shown that children who drink a lot of juice may become overweight. And the same logic applies to you. If there’s a certain drink that you often order, do some research first and find out how many calories are in it and then decide if ordering that drink in the future is really helping you to get slimmer. If what you suspect is right, and that drink has too many calories, start exploring other options. Satisfy your thirst with water. Sparkling water with citrus, skimmed or low-fat milk, or small portions of 100% fruit juice can do the trick too. Try a glass of low-calorie vegetable juice to hold you over if you get hungry between meals. You will get more nutrients from this, and no fat!
Here is a simple weight loss technique that could pay off handsomely as well. When eating your meal, you can put your fork down in between bites. As weird as this sound, this little trick will slow down your rate of eating and you won’t put as much food into your mouth. This is simple, but obviously effective. Before you laugh, try this out for a few months, then check your size and weight to measure your results.
You can train your body to get slimmer as well. It is mind over matter really, but then what isn’t? This tip will trick your body into accepting the feeling of not being full as just normal. Put another way, try eating till you are only about 80% full. You will feel like you could eat some more, but do not do that. Now, as you practice to do this regularly, you will learn to be comfortable with that feeling. If you use smaller plates, cups, and utensils, and resist the urge to go back for seconds, you will undoubtedly lose weight and get slimmer.
One habit that’s common to many people who have lost weight and kept it off is eating breakfast every day. Many people think skipping breakfast is a great way to cut calories, but they usually end up eating more throughout the day. Studies show people who eat breakfast have lower BMIs than breakfast-skippers and perform better, whether at school or in the boardroom. A good breakfast of yoghurt with cereal flakes or a bowl of whole-grain cereal topped with fruit and low-fat dairy will ensure a quick and nutritious way to start your day.
Do not forget that you should exercise as well, but since your goal is also to get slimmer, you should concentrate on areas that will show obvious results. At the end of the day, you will want to have slimmer arms, slimmer legs, and slimmer thighs. If your weight loss, and your slimming regime is not working fast enough, exercising can give you a much needed boost so you can burn enough calories to reach your goal quickly.
