An easier path to weight loss…

It’s tempting to zoom straight in on foods when we are considering weight loss, but it may be just as important to step back and check the factors for improved appetite control.

  • Chewing your food gives longer lasting fullness. Be generous with those lightly cooked, crunchy greens at lunch and the evening meals.
  • 3 meals per day evenly spaced over the day will help to keep your appetite under control. Large gaps between meals promotes over eating, so work on being creative with how and when you access your food.
  • Pamper yourself with water – because a thirsty person presents as a hungry person. Plain water is the best fluid for hydration.  During the winter you need 1.0 – 1.5 litres of water over the day.  Work on a system – use lunch as your half way checkpoint!
  • Short, brisk exercise is perfect for helping you to make good food choices and identify portions that are suitable for you. A daily 20 – 30 minute walk, as brisk as possible will help with appetite control.
  • Shop on a regular basis so you have easy access to the right foods. Set up a shopping list and keep mainly to the outside aisles as this is the fresh produce which is naturally low in fats and sugars.
