The first quick tip is to drink more water. Are you surprised that it is that simple? Research has shown that water acts as a natural appetite suppressant. It could be related to signals sent to the brain from the stomach that suppresses your need to eat , after drinking water. It could just be that after drinking water that your stomach feels so full that you eat less.
The other thing to remember is that drinking water before meals, even if it as small as 2 cups per meal can hep you lose weight, because cumulatively you will end up eating less calories per day. There you have it, if you really want to lose weight and keep it off, drink more water every day. Finally , remember that if you drink more water you are less likely to have time drink other fluids like soda , and juice.
The second quick tip is to form the habit of saying, "No". Don't say "yes" to please others and eat ice cream to please others when you have already planned not to. The problem is that if you say yes to one ice cream, you would probably say yes to cookies, cakes and much more. However if people notice that you said no to ice cream, they are going to notice that you are serious about losing weight and begin to more supportive.
The third quick tip is to add chia seeds to everything you eat and even to most things that you drink. When you 4 spoons of chia seeds to your yoghurt , salads, potato pudding or fried rice or any other food that you enjoy eating, it won't the taste, but you will have added more fibers. The big advantage of chia seeds is that add more fibers to your meal and make it easier to eat healthy, and lose weight per meal without going on a diet. Why?
This is because the soluble fibers in chia seeds help to lower your low density lipoproteins(LDL) (so called bad cholesterol)and slows down digestion. By slowing down digestion , chia seeds help to prevent sharp increases in blood sugar after eating. The other benefit of fibers in chia seeds is that they also help to make you feel more full and less hungry.
