Don’t Skip Breakfast Breakfast is considered to be one of the most important meal of the day. However late you are to your work place, school etc, it’s very important that you eat your breakfast.
Your body (especially the brain) expects to be refueled a number of times each day, if you skip breakfast then you’ll be totally starving for a long time as the duration from dinner to next lunch is too long, hence this would make you overeat or may choose foods that are not the healthiest choices. Skipping breakfast also slows down your metabolism process.
Having a good healthy breakfast will keep your body energetic, healthy, active and strong to face the day. Chew Food nicely, Eat Less Studies have shown that the longer time you take in chewing the food, the lesser calories or food you would consume. Chewing for longer time would also prevent over-eating and aids in proper digestion. This will also help in limiting your portion size.
Try chewing food atleast 30 to 50 times per mouthful. Concentrate on what food you are eating It is very important that you concentrate only on eating while having your breakfast, lunch or dinner. I am sure that many a times your parents must have reprimanded you to not talk, read or watch TV while eating your food.
Generally it is said that when you are multitasking during your meal time, your brain isn’t focussing on the amount of food that you are consuming hence you’re prone to overloading yourself with more number of calories/ food. Hence it is best you concentrate on your food and pay attention to what you are eating.
Having Fruits before meals It is often advised by most dietician and doctors to eat fresh, natural vegetables and fruits. They also advise us to eat fruits at least 30 minutes before any heavy meal which will help in quick digestion. Eating fruits on empty stomach detoxifies the system and supplies us with a great deal of energy for losing weight.
Do not overcook your food Overcooking the food is a bad method of cooking as it kills of most of the nutrients present in your food. It is best that you either boil, eat them raw in salads, steam, bake, blanch or grill and eat. Eat Smaller meals, more often Ideally it is advised that you eat atleast five to six times per day which would have a break of about two to three hours inbetween each meal.
Eating more frequently will keep your metabolism going and it also works in an elevated level continuously throughout the day. Stick to the timing rightly so that you could avoid over-eating. Avoid eating after 8pm It is often said that early to bed and early to rise is a very good practice that we all should follow to lead a healthy lifestyle. It is always best that you eat your last meal of the day by or before 8pm.
