Here are 5 tips to lower your calories without thinking.
One of the biggest obstacles to dieting is the cognitive restraint - AKA - brainpower required to count calories or weigh food etc.
Some people love it but others would rather watch paint dry than count calories or weigh food.
If you want to lower your calorie intake to lose a bit of fat, practice a few of the tips below and they will help you automatically do this without much mental effort.
1. Chew your food until it is liquid.
Chewing until liquid allows you to eat slower and register feelings of fullness so you don't over consume calories in a short amount of time.
2. Clean your teeth after your meals.
Great for diminishing sweet cravings.
3. Have an apple on hand at all times.
If you don't like apples, choose another low calorie, high fibre fruit to keep you from reaching for the cookie jar in moments of temptation.
When we are stressed, bored or semi-hungry, we usually reach for the high calorie, lower nutrient dense foods.
Have an apple on hand will help you make better choices and feel full for just enough time to get to your next main meal.
4. Have a lean source of protein at each meal.
Vegetarian and animal based protein foods are filling. Again leading to less calories being eaten without thinking.
5. Aim to get a little bit hungry before you eat.
This one is a bit more difficult but if you want to lose some excess body fat it's an option.
Try to commit to feeling a little bit hungry before each main meal.
Give your body a chance to tap into stored body fat between meals instead of constantly topping the tank up by snacking continuously throughout the day.
