10 tips Eat Less, Live Longer

 

We all pretty much know that in order to weigh less, we need to eat less with healthy balance diet.  Whether you’re trying to lose weight or not, almost anyone can agree the potential benefit of living longer is a great plus to cutting a few calories! However, this isn’t always the easiest thing to do. Here are a few helpful hints to trim your daily intake without going hungry.

  • Eat less. More often. Rather than eating large meals, chop up your eating into smaller portions throughout the day.
  • Check out your portions. Most restaurants serve almost double the recommended serving size of a dish, so ask to wrap up half your plate before you begin eating. You likely won’t miss it!
  • Eat more slowly. Studies show that people who eat faster weigh more than those who chew more slowly and pause between bites. Drinking a full glass of water before each meal can also help curb calories.
  • Eat less processed foods. More natural foods tend to fill you up better, as they often contain more fibre and healthier fats. Instead of potato chips, go for carrots. You’ll get the crunch and satiating tasty zing without the Trans Fats.
  • Eat vegetables before the main course. Whenever possible, I’d make sure to have an ample serving of a vegetable (you get very few calories for the amount you eat) before eating the denser main course–often a meat or fish. You’ll need less of the dense stuff to be happy.
  • Kick the sugar habit. If you drink sugared soft drinks, replace them either with their diet counterparts or water. This can make a very, very big difference.
  • Reduce the amount of salty food and soup. A lot of s salty food make you want to eat and drink even more. Besides this, salty food always cause water retention problem.
  • Cut out the alcohol. Full of empty calories, this may not be the most desirable part of your diet to cut, but likely the healthiest. If you do indulge, make it a once-a-week treat, not a daily event.
  • Drink more water during the day. Water always helps to burn off few calories.
  • Don’t eat right before going to bed. We should avoid late dinner or supper and eat before 7.30pm. Late dinner and supper always increase the calories.

  1. Hi, how to avoid taking dinner/supper right after swimming/exercise?.. Normally I will craving for foods after this activity… what should I take/prevent?… TQVM

    1. Hi Julia, you can try to arrange/adjust your swimming/exercise time to earlier time (the best is before 7.30pm), to prevent taking late dinner. But somehow you need to exercise late, and of course you still need to eat after the exercise, so what you can do is cut down your food portion. For example, take half bowl of rice instead of 1 bowl, take half palm size of fish or chicken instead of full palm size, and must avoid fattening and sweetening food/beverages. All the best!
