Avoid fried meat, eat only grilled or boiled meat like steak and chicken Use a lot of spices to make it even better.
Give up the soda. If you drink a soda or two every day you are adding empty calories. If you find it hard to stop completely, cut back at first and drink water instead. (Note that the average person adds 90,000 calories a year from drinking juice or soda. WOW! That’s a great tip.)
Don’t buy junk food. Shop according to a list. If you don’t have junk food at home you won’t eat it.
Give yourself a treat. When you can’t eat something you end up craving it more, and eventually binging. Enjoy a treat once a week, or even once a day in smaller quantities. Don’t go crazy, keep it in moderation.
Use a smaller plate to trick yourself into thinking you’re eating more than you really are. (Not only are you tricking yourself, even if the trick doesn’t work it’s easier to stop eating when the plate is empty and there’s no more food available.)
Get poor. Gamble away your money so you can’t afford food. (Um, no. That’s a bad idea.)
Stay away from fad diets. They starve you and then you eat more when the diet is over.
Do exercises several times a day. If you’re watching television, do some push ups or crunches. (That’s a great idea to increase caloric burn.)
Measure your food. If you have junk food make sure to measure and control the portion. (Portion control is a big part of a healthy diet. Most restaurants and even people at home serve portions that are too large.)
Create good eating habits through repetition. (It’s said that if we repeat something 21 times it becomes a habit. Sometimes the number is different, but the idea is the same. Will power is only needed to repeat something enough times for it to become a habit.)
Eat slower. The body doesn’t feel full as fast as you can eat, so people tend to eat beyond full.
