How To Look Feel Be Thinner Now
Drink Green Tea
Studies suggest that the phytochemicals in green tea can rev up the bodys calorie-burning engine temporarily. Its also a calorie-free replacement for diet soda or high- calorie cocktails.
Stretch Yourself With Yoga
The Journal of the American Dietetic Association published a study that showed that women who practice yoga tend to weigh less. Possible reason: the self-awareness developed through yoga translates to more mindful eating.
Strong mint-flavored gum can curb the urge when youre at high risk for snacking. It overpowers other flavors and food wont taste good.
Consider Going Meatless
If youre not ready to be a full-time vegetarian, try it one or more days per week. Vegetarians weigh up to 20% less than meat eaters. One possibility is that whole grain and legumes-based diets are high in fiber and low in fat. Fiber fills you up and adds fewer calories. Most Americans get only half the recommended amount of daily fiber.
Lose 10 Pounds In A Year Without Dieting
Do this by burning an extra 100 calories every day. Thats the equivalent of walking one mile (about 20 minutes) a day.
Make Meals Last At Least 20 Minutes
Chew slowly and put down the fork every few bites. Eating too fast blocks the bodys fullness signals and causes overeating.
Don't Hide Your "Skinny" Clothes
Hang them where you see them every day if you need a little reminder not to overeat.
Don't Squeeze Into A Smaller Size
To look slimmer, clothing should skim the body without hugging it tightly. Anywhere clothing gaps or pulls will call attention to that spot.
Don't Forget The Shoes!
Fabulous accessories steal the show. Shoes, handbags, scarves and jewelry can create happiness and provide great camouflage.
