Say goodbye to denial diets and add more of y our favorites instead. Just be sure to add the healthy ones, like deep-red cherries, grapes, and so on. Those fruits can be eaten with your breakfast cereal or be your snacks, while the veggies can be added into your stews, sauces and soups. In any case, remember to watch your calories.

Don’t Go to the Gym That’s right. Forget the whole workout idea if only makes you the great avoider. But you still need to bust those calories by hiking, beachcombing, and the like. There are plenty of more exciting ways to lose weight! Size Down If you feel denied when you eat less, consider sizing down your dinnerware. If you look at food on a large plate, you might crave for more; but if you use a smaller plate, you could get that visual signal that you already have enough. As human beings, we have the tendency to go by physical hints during mealtime. When we see the bottom of our plate or bowl, we know we’ve had enough. That goes without saying that food on a small plate will feel more satisfying than an equal amount of food on a bigger plate. Also go for smaller spoons, bowls and cups. Try eating ice cream with a baby spoon, for example. It will give your body more time registering the food and makes you enjoy it for longer too. Live Life Beyond Weight Loss Sometimes, focusing too much on your weight loss efforts can be boring. But it doesn’t mean you should stop whatever it is your doing. You just have to continue with your weight loss and live a life out of it. Try yoga, for instance, or learn a musical instrument (nobody’s too old for that). Maybe you’ve always wanted to help with a charity project. The point is to have a life outside your weight. If your schedule is already too busy, eat at the dinner table at least, instead of in front of your computer or TV, which tends to be distracting. Eating at the table increases your consciousness about the food you’re eating. Adjust Your Favorites One of the least painful ways of watching what you eat without feeling deprived is getting the reduced-calorie versions of your favorite foodies. Low fat ice cream with your usual toppers can also be satisfying. And while you’re shaving the calories, pad your fiber. As always, fiber makes you feel fuller longer. Water First before Meal Try drinking some water before your first spoonful and you’ll be amazed how much less you’ll end up eating. If you’re a compulsive eater, drinking water will help you by keeping your mouth busy without actually eating. Do the same, even when you’re at a party. Besides, hydration is always important for optimal body functioning, including fat metabolism.
