1. Drink Water. The part of your brain that tells you you're thirsty, tells you you're hungry and sometimes the signals can be misread. Simply drink glass of water and wait 15 minutes. Easy way to trick your brain that thirst/hunger trigger has been satisfied. If your still hungry after the 15 minutes then eat.
2. Remove Sugar. Sugar is everywhere even in places that you don't expect it. Bacon? yep. Salad dressing? Almost always. Flavored yogurt? Holy moly! Sugar can lead to mood swings, insulin resistance, overactive candida (natural yeast in the body) and depression. There is no nutritional value with sugar. And....eating sugar only leads to the desire to eat more sugar. Stop the cycle and feel better.
3. Eat Fat. Yep you read that right. Typically carbs and BAD fat go hand in hand. So as long as you steer clear of the carbohydrates, the fat you choose should be good. For example: grab nuts, not pretzels. If you want a fun salad topping, toss on some avocado. Fat keeps you fuller longer and doesn't affect your blood sugar, so you won't crash 20 minutes after a meal. Fill up on healthy fat and trim down.
4. Do Micro Workouts. Getting to gym everyday can be difficult. So why not do 25 stomach crunches while catching up on your favorite TV show. While you're waiting for the microwave to ding, do some lunges. And while you're on the floor putting your kid's shoes on, get on your stomach and do 10 push-ups.
