1. Make a list of your eating habits. And underline the ones that you think make you gain weight. In addition, you must make sure you know what are the factors that trigger these habits in your diet; example, you do it after a family fight or during an episode of stress in the office.
2. Eat only when you feel hungry. Instead of eating because you are tired, distressed or in any other state of mind. If you realize that you are not eating hungry but because you feel bored or distressed, do something that makes you feel as good as eating.
3. Eating at night is not synonymous with obesity. The time of day is not what affects the way your body spends calories. What affects your weight is the total number of calories you consume and those that you burn during the course of 24 hours.
4. You should not give up your "favorite food". If your food is high caloric content, example, a chocolate bar. Consume one of smaller size or only half of the bar you are used to.
A good tip is to look for a new version of that dish you love so much: If you have fried fish or breaded chicken, try cooking it in the oven or on the grill for healthier variations. Maybe you can even try a recipe that bears beans instead of high-fat meat. Try it, you do not lose anything!
