1) A spoonful of coconut oil suppresses your appetite
Coconut oil has other health benefits, but the one that interests us the most is the appetite suppressant. That’s right, coconut oil is rich in healthy fats and has a nice butter flavor that gives your body the impression that it has eaten even if it has not already been eaten. A spoonful of coconut oil a day when you feel the need to eat, but it will not help you stay straight and tight (and it will help you lose a few pounds!)
2) Cut the liquid calories and drink water
This is one of the most effective ways to maintain your weight loss diet. Soft drinks such as Coca-Cola and Pepsi are absolute destroyers of any type of diet. A single bottle of coke contains 250 calories, all in sugar, almost as many calories as a burger!
So cut the soda and whenever you feel like it, drink some water. Drinking water helps in two ways: dehydration makes you hungry and drinking water helps to suppress your appetite. Many people have trouble drinking water. Connect them to something they do all day long. For example, every time the phone rings or consults an email, it drinks a sip of water. You will be surprised at its effectiveness!
3) Reduce your dishes
Several studies have shown that our body wants to eat what is put before it at mealtime. Solution? Use smaller plates! Small plates are proven portion control methods: a Cornell University study found that people could consume 16% less food and simply change the size of their plates. If it’s not in front of you, you will not want that much!
4) Do not skip breakfast
You’ve heard it over and over again, but it’s important, extremely important! Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day because it not only triggers your metabolism, but also prevents hunger: you may not be hungry before lunch, but your body will do it and ask you to eat oily or sweet snacks Have to breakfast! Your body will thank you.
5) eat more slowly
Our bodies are not the most effective tools of the shed when it comes to our mechanism of hunger: we often need a little time to realize that we are really full and if we eat fast, our body can eat more than we wanted. do it without realizing it.
