TEN UNIQUE DIETING TIPS
TEN UNIQUE DIETING TIPS
10. You know you should drink eight ounces of water each
day. But did you know that if you drink cold water, you'll
burn more calories? Your body has to work just that little bit
harder to warm your insides back up.
9. Brush your teeth as soon as you can after eating. That minty
taste in your mouth will remind you the food is done, your teeth
are clean, and it should reduce your snack desires. (Plus it may
reduce your dental bills later.)
8. Eat a lot of soup, and use a spoon. It takes about 20 minutes
for your stomach to signal your brain that it's full. Using a
spoon on your soup will take longer to finish and your body
will tell you you're full faster than if you gulped a couple of
sandwiches and went looking for dessert. But watch the sodium
content of your soup. Most commercial cans are quite high in
sodium content, and that's not good for you.
7. Eat negative calorie foods. By that they mean foods that
burn more calories to digest than they contain. There's a whole
long list of vegetables and fruits that fit this category. A few
are: asparagus, broccoli, carrots, celery, cucumber, green beans,
lettuce, spinach, apples, grapefruit, orange, pineapple, and
6. Eat fruits that contain ascorbic acid or Vitamin C. They
generally also have fat-burning qualities. They also reduce
5. Soybeans have something called "lecithin," which reportedly
shields your body's cells from accumulating fat. Apples and
applesauce will also limit the amount of fat your body absorbs
due to the chemical "pectin" in the skin.
4. Build a snowman. You'll burn off about 285 calories, and
have some fun at the same time!
3. Eat foods that are natural diuretics, so your body will flush
away the fat. Asparagus, beets, Brussels sprouts, cabbage,
carrots, celery, cucumber, garlic, horseradish, lettuce, onions,
radishes, and tomatoes. But be sure to drink a *lot* of water
if you eat a lot of these foods, so you don't dehydrate.
2. Use smaller dishes. A juice glass and a salad plate instead
of a regular cup and dinner plate. It's a psychological trick to
make you think you're still eating as much when you see both
full to the brim.
1. Procrastinate your cravings. Hunger pangs and food cravings
will usually only last about 15 to 20 minutes. When your body
realizes you're not going to feed it, it moves on to other issues
until you start thinking about food again. So when you get
hungry, and it's not time for your meal or snack, find a chore
or an errand or something else to take your mind off the craving
and you'll probably find that within a short time you've
forgotten all about being hungry.
