If you haven't already check out our first article on the matter, go ahead and take a peek at that one after this one! We are often looking for a secret method or a pill that will help us loss weight the fastest. Many of us have found that to be completely false and although there isn't a magical potion in real life, being consistent with health habits will pay off in the long run. That feeling of success you will feel will be more magic than any quick fix. With that said, here are more scientifically proven tips:
1. Get to know your food
You don't necessarily need to count your calories but just familiarize yourself with the food landscape. For example, know that a regular coffee is about 10 calories versus a frappuccino which can be anywhere from 150-300 calories. It might also be a good idea to keep a food journal for a week of your regular eating before deciding on a diet to go on so you know exactly what to improve from your current diet.
2. Use a smaller plate
Studies have shown that changing your plate from 12 inches to 10 inches in diameter can reduce your food intake by 22% since you perceive that you are eating more food. This makes sense because if you have the same amount of food but you see more blank space with the 12 inch plate, your mind is going to trick you into thinking you are eating less whereas with a smaller plate with less blank space you think you are eating more.
