healthy weight

No matter how devoted you are to weight loss fads, the only way you can truly maintain a healthy weight is if you follow a balanced diet.

Since it isn’t always easy, here are a few ways you can make some tiny adjustments to your eating habits:

Listen to your body
Try not to eat out of boredom. Instead, listen to your body and eat when you’re hungry.

When you skip a meal during the day, you compensate for the missed meal and this causes you to overeat. Instead, eat regularly throughout the day.

Cut down
Instead of filling your plate, cut down on your portion sizes and add some variety to your meals.

Plan ahead

Be patient
Make small changes as you go along and you will eventually see the changes in your body. Rome wasn’t built in a day!

The researchers involved in the study think that the government can help reverse the obesity epidemic by regulating how fast food is being advertised as well as giving people economic incentives to encourage companies to sell healthier foods.

But for the meantime, it looks like you’ll just have to think twice before ordering another take away because those 0.03 points will eventually add up…
