Weight Loss Tip #58 Hunger
Do you constantly feel hungry? Even after you have eaten a meal? This is one of the largest indicators of being both thirsty and dehydrated! People sometimes confuse thirst with hunger and end up eating more calories than they really needed to! Don’t you wish our bodies had a meter that told us how many calories we were consuming on a daily basis? That would make life so much easier in the weight loss department! Reach for a large glass of water instead of reaching for a snack next time you think you might be hungry. For some zest, add in some citrusy flavor to change things up a bit! That glass of water will hydrate and freshen you up. It will also determine if you truly are hungry or not, so wait for that stomach growl! Wait at least 15 minutes, and you will know right away if that was really hunger you were feeling.

We have all heard the recommended amount of healthy fruits and veggies we are supposed to consume each day, but do we actually amount to those numbers? The recommended amount each day is 5-9 servings. Fruit and Veggies displace fat in the diet, and they will keep you from overeating each day which is a complete bonus! They are delicious and can be eaten in a variety of ways too! More than 200 studies have shown that phytochemicals found in produce have combated diseases in the body, so be sure and get your servings in daily! They are not hard to find, and they are conveniently packed in a variety of ways to fit your lifestyle. Whether you like them canned, fresh, or frozen there is always an option for you!

Weight Loss Tip #56 Lunch Salads
There is nothing worse. I repeat, nothing worse than being hungry right after you supposedly had your lunch. Does your new diet have you down and feeling hungry right away? Maybe it is time to beef up your lunch salad just a touch and you might reap the benefits hours from then. Some people think they need to eat a salad with just greens, and a few veggies to stay under their caloric number for the day, but what about when hunger pangs strike and you find yourself reaching for unhealthy quick snack which will ruin your attempts at your diet? This is where your lunch portions are key to diet survival, so why not add in a little protein like chicken to the top of your salad with a little bit of dressing? Those options are far better than the candy bowl at the front office, which is a hard one to turn down when you are starving. Even better, add a few slices of avocado to your salad and stay satisfied for longer!

Weight Loss Tip #55 Frozen Vegetables
We have all stood there with an empty shopping cart staring down an endless line of fresh produce. One thought pops into our head: “If I buy this fresh, I know I will have to prepare it or cut it up this week so it doesn’t go bad.” There is always that extra pressure when you are grocery shopping and need to think about your week ahead of time, and shop accordingly. Do you have a busy week with very little free time? You might be better off buying frozen veggies instead of fresh, they will stay edible longer and the pressure is off of you. Or is your week the opposite, where you will be home cooking each night? Fresh produce may not be a bad route to go if that is the case. To avoid wasting food and money, preparation is key. I will give you a few tips and tricks below!

Weight Loss Tip #54 Thermostat
Are you a fan of chilly households, and bedrooms? If so, you are in luck because studies have shown that if you keep your home around 61 degrees Fahrenheit your body will boost its fat burning power 15 fold! Did you know that our body’s store brown fat and white fat? The brown fat is meant to burn calories while generating heat, and it has been said that most lean people store more brown fat that white fat. Brown fat helps us burn, and not store calories, which is why it has become the most popular fat out there today. (1). Brown fat derives from muscle tissue, and it is most dominantly found in both animals and newborns which makes a lot of sense! But how do we as adults get more brown fat in our bodies? Exercise can help the white shift to brown, getting enough sleep, and finally lowering the temperature in your home all can help with that shift from pesky white to glorious brown.

Weight Loss Tip #53 Downsize Dinnerware
The larger the plate, the more food you will be able to fit onto it. This should not come as any surprise to you or I, as more and more health experts are suggesting we take our dinnerware down a size or two. The more full your plate appears to be, the more satisfied your brain will feel after eating the entire portion size. If you are anything like me, you are probably thinking to yourself “I am not going to throw away all of my dishes for new ones.” You do not have to, because you can switch up the large plates for salad plates, and the salad plates for dinner plates! It is a win-win, and money is not spent in the process. The more greens you get into your diet, the less you will be wanting to fill your stomach with sugar and empty calories anyway!

Weight Loss Tip #52 Go Out For Treats
That little candy bowl in the kitchen, or those left over sweets from the holidays linger in the pantry and take over every last bit of our self-control. Having sweets in the house (or any treats for that matter) can be dangerous to your diet routine. The harder it is to get your hands on those yummy morsels, the better off your body will feel in the long run. When you have to leave your home to go indulge in those treats, it will really feel like a special occasion. Your consumption of those treats will naturally diminish as it can be a real hassle to grab treats out of the way, all of the time.

Weight Loss Tip #50 Consider If You Really Are Hungry
Hunger is your body’s way of telling your brain that you need fuel to continue to function at your highest level. It is usually a gradual process that gets more intense over time; so do not be fooled by cravings that come on suddenly as they may not even be hunger related. When you succumb to cravings, you will not really ever be quite satisfied once you devour the craving. Your stomach is around the size of your fist, and it does not take a lot to become full and completely satisfied from the hunger pangs. Analyze your hunger and decide if it is really something that is fuel driven or mind driven to save you from overeating later on.

Weight Loss Tip #49 Nighttime Snacks
We have all been there, an entire day goes by and we have been good about eating healthy foods until night hits. Dinner is over, the kitchen is cleaned up and there is a small voice inside of your head telling you to go to the freezer and grab that pint of Ben & Jerry’s, or that candy in the pantry is calling your name louder than ever before. We usually succumb to the pressure of these cravings, due to the fact that we were “good all day” but this does not make us feel any better after the fact. If anything, it makes us feel like we have blown the whole day after dinner. Nighttime snacking is a pain for everyone, but be prepared for those cravings to pop up. If you have a snack that is ready to go after dinner before those cravings hit you will naturally grab that snack when you need a little pick me up before bedtime. No one likes to go to bed hungry.
