Keeping the weigh off  is all about making small changes without taxing your lifestyle too much. If you can change a practice here and there you may reap long term benefits. Small changes add up to big calorie savings and ultimately weigh loss and maintenance.

Analyze your eating habits – Find out if you are eating late at night, munching throughout the day, licks and bites while cooking or finishing off your kids’ meals. These habits and other similar habits can sneak in calories when you are not looking and thus sabotaging your efforts. Try and change some of these behaviors to cut back on the calorie intake.

Plan the day – If you fail to plan, then you is setting yourself up for failure. Be sure to plan your day ahead of time so you have your meals and snacks ready. This will prevent downfalls and keep you on track. It will also indicate if you are eating for emotional reasons.

Never shop hungry – If you go into a grocery store when you are hungry, chances are that you will buy more food than what is on your list. Prepare a list to prevent impulse buying. When you stock your refrigerator and pantry with healthy foods, you are own your way to a healthier lifestyle.

Eat regular meals – Figure out times to eat depending on  your work schedule or lifestyle. Your body may function best when it has 4 meals a day. Once you figure the meal times, do stick to it. This will prevent skipping meals and subsequently over eating at the next meal.

Settle down to eat and eat from a plate – This will help control your portions. When you eat food out of a package, you wind up eating more than one serving and you may not be able to keep track of it. If you are multitasking while eating, you may inadvertently eat more. Also serve your plate at the stove, bring it to the table and eat. If you want seconds, you will have to go back to the stove. Eat slowly and enjoy each bite. You can try setting your fork down after each bite. It takes about 20 minutes for your stomach to send the fullness signal to the brain.

Avoid snacks after dinner – If you are hungry after dinner, try satisfying your urge with a non caloric beverage or a sugar free popsicle. Brushing your teeth after dinner helps reduce the temptation to eat again.

Snack wisely – Treat snacks like mini meals. Just like you would have a balanced meal, have a balanced snack that provides complex carbohydrates, lean protein and a small amount of fat.

Never skip breakfast – Start your day with a healthy breakfast. This will provide your body the fuel it needs and keeps your metabolism at a steady pace.

Incorporate these daily and start getting results today.

Review by Joseph, April 19, 2012

It is that time of year again: The summer beach season. I really would like to actually get to the beach this summer– And I live one block away from the beach…Go figure. It is not that I am fat. I do have a beach body’ thanks to my commitment to exercise. I suppose I have just taken the beach for granted. But I intend to change that and the tips in this article will help.

Review by Kathryn, April 19, 2012

You have a great article here, so many people don’t stop to think about these things and when they finally do they realize where their diet is failing at. I hate diets so I choose to call them life changers because that is what you have to do change your life style and make it more healthy. You have done an excellent job with this and I hope you will do more.

Review by Steve, April 20, 2012

The three most important points from this article to me are 1. Never skip breakfast. 2. Eat regularly 3. Snack wisely. As a matter of fact, my numbers two and three go hand in hand. If you are eating regularly, naturally it would mean you are snacking between the big three meals and as long as you snack on protein rich grains and nuts or even fruit, you will do alright and keep your metabolism high.

Review by Jon, April 20, 2012

You are so right when you said don’t shop hungry, OMG! I went to the store for groceries before we had dinner and I probably spent twice as much as I normally would and it was on stuff we didn’t need. I will never do that again or if I do I will make sure someone goes with me to help me stay focused on just what I need. Thank you for this information.

Review by Peter, April 21, 2012

What do you think is the most handy and successful method to achieve this goal? There wont be a surprising element if every one answers this question in one term i.e. diet pills. More and more people are getting drowned in the onslaught of fast food and junk foods. Over sixty percent of American citizens are considered obese or going towards it. Many would like to disagree with this, but deep down inside, most of them would like to change their eating lifestyle.
