Some people, especially the ones that weight more than they want to, are obsessed with every bite. Don`t be stressed. Some researches show that skinny people simply don’t think about food the same way as well, the rest of us. Skinny people have more relaxed relationship with food.
The “No S” Weight Loss Plan
The No S Diet is a weight loss plan that cuts out seconds, sweets and snacking except on days that start with the letter S. Fasting is not a new concept. It has been practiced from many people from old ages. You can do it too. Regular fasting has serious health benefits, including slowing the aging process, improving diabetes, preventing heart disease, and, yes, weight loss. There are many different ways to try this. Two of the most popular fasting plans include the 5:2 Diet, where you eat normally five days a week and fast for two, and the 16:8 plan, where you fast 16 hours a day and eat what you like during an 8-hour window.
Start your day with dessert
It sounds too good to be true but dessert first, this time! Morning is the best time to consume sweets because that’s when the body’s metabolism is most active – and we have the rest of the day to work off the calories. The scientists found that eating chocolate as part of a 600-calorie breakfast ate less food during the day. The dessert-dieters are losing more weight than those who eat a traditionally healthy breakfast.
Stick to a schedule
Whatever you eat – do it at the same time and amount everyday! “Chrono-nutrition” is the study of how our eating patterns work within the biological patterns of our daily lives and people who set an eating schedule and stuck to it were more likely to lose weight than those who ate chaotically. People who eat at random times every day have higher blood pressure than people who stuck to an eating schedule. Eating late at night might get you fat.
You can cheat sometimes.. but not everyday! Plan indulgences into your diet—called “cheat meals”—and you won’t be tempted to binge on forbidden foods.Cheat meals are all about helping you stick to your diet. The most common reason people fail to reach their goal is because they stop eating the food they love. Eat a cheat meal that is still well-balanced and higher in both calories and carbohydrates than your normal meal.
Measuring out your food can help you lose weight. People are notoriously bad at estimating what, say, a cup of breakfast cereal looks like. Even if you’re off by only a little bit, add all those together and you could be unintentionally eating hundreds more calories a day. So break out the measuring cups and spoons and make sure you’re only eating one serving. If you’re starving, you’re more likely to eat an extra-large portion. For most people, the best plan is to eat three well-designed meals and one snack.
Business during the week, party on the weekends
We all gain weight on the weekends. Most people weigh the most on Sunday nights and the least on Friday mornings, thanks to weekend splurges. And that may not be a bad thing! The researchers found that those who had the biggest difference between their Friday and Sunday weigh-ins—meaning they’d lost more weight during the week—were more likely to keep the weight off. It’s good to allow for regular indulgences, they said, as long as you’re limiting them to a set period (like a Saturday).
Limiting food through fasting or scheduled meal times may work for some people but others find they do best with small, consistent snacks throughout the day.Snacking can also help you get in all the nutrients you need. Your snacks can include a small treat as long as the majority of your food is coming from whole food sources like plants and meat.
Take a seat
We all sit too much during the day, it’s true, but there is one time you want to make sure you park it in a chair: when you’re eating. People who sit down at the table to eat naturally eat fewer calories than people who eat on the go, says a study published in the Journal of Health Psychology. Eating at the table is a conscious decision, the researchers found, which made people more aware of what and how much they were consuming. The effect worked even better when the diners were not distracted by a TV, phone, or magazine. So you can still enjoy all your favorite foods—as long as you sit down to eat them.
