1.What Makes You Overeat?
If you have controlling your appetite and hunger, maybe you should sit down and evaluate what actually makes you overate. Many times, overeating is instigated by emotions such as stress, boredom, anger, or depression. Emotions play a huge part in weight control, whether it is eating too much or too little. Find help or treatment so that you can maintain your weight again.
If you’re overeating because you have no control, take control! It’s imperative that you don’t overstuff yourself every time you eat. This makes your stomach physically bigger and will increase your appetite. Eat one cookie less. Eat one serving less. Slowly stop yourself from overeating.
2. Casual Fridays = Weight Loss?
Wearing casual clothes to work can actually help you lose weight. A study performed in the University of Wisconsin found that there is a relationship between clothing and weight loss. The reason behind this wacky weight loss tip is that if you wear casual clothes to work, you most likely will be less stress leading to weight loss or have some physical activity at work (whether it be the type of work or exercising at work), so that it can lead to more weight loss. The study also showed that those who wore casual clothes to work also took 491 more steps than the well-dressed counterparts. It also found 8% more calories burnt for those casual dresses! Another study confirmed that an average of 25 calories was burnt off more for casual dressers. That is almost two pounds of fat more lost per year. Might be worthwhile to start dressing down.
3. Cotton Ball Diet
Okay, I know I have heard of bland food before and they work, but cotton balls? Well there is actually a diet that is based on a cotton ball diet. Believe it or not, the cotton balls are very filling for you and it obviously is low in calories. So full bellies, bland (not so terrible) taste, and low in calories = weight loss. I know it can be unbelievable, but there is such a diet and it is a weight loss tip.
4. Don’t Skip Meals
A study published in the medical journal “Metabolism” says that people who skip meals end up eating just as much as they would on a normal day. In addition to eating the same amount, those who skip meals caused potentially risky metabolic changes, elevating fasting glucose levels and delaying insulin response. These conditions can lead to diabetes. Skipping meals also forces you to overeat at night, which is the worst time of your day to eat more than you should. So if you feel like skipping meal, eat a snack. Don’t starve because it will come back to get you later.
