We all know that in order to lose weight, you need to:
1) eat less
2) exercise more.
Nothing new there.
However, there are different approaches, techniques, what I like to call “hacks” – that can make your life SO much easier when you are attempting to diet down.
And trust me – we make full use of these (and more) in my new FEED THE BEAST diet plan:
Forest’s Top 5 Diet Hacks
1 – Batch Cook
Making a healthy dinner? Cook double or triple the normal amount. Save what you don’t eat in tupperware containers, and you’re all set for half the week.
2 – Focus While You Eat
Resist the urge to eat or drink while you watch the tube or check your email. Research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition shows that people who eat while distracted eat 10 percent more in one sitting than they would otherwise.
3 – Healthy Treats
Sometimes you’re just craving some sugar. Having a Crystal Light ready to mix up, or a couple sticks of sugar free gum, can make a HUGE difference – and can keep you from going and grabbing a piece of cake for desert!
4 – Log Your Food
Just doing this alone imporoves most people’s diet and helps them lose weight, because you automatically become so much more aware of what you are eating.
5 – Smaller Bowls
Researchers found that people who were given larger bowls, served and ate 16 percent more than those given smaller bowls. Use this to your dieting advantage!
Implement one or more of these diet hacks today, and see how much easier it is to tighten up your diet, and reach your fat loss goals in 2018.
