Submitted by on October 4, 2009 – 10:05 amNo Comment



Let’s check these healthy tips that can help in attaining the perfect curves without restricting any foodstuffs from your plate.

  1. Eat more flavors: Eat your daily foods but in them opt for low- calorie versions instead. Skim milk instead of whole, but if you find that low versions are not doing that well then choose way for something new and improved things to add flavor to your delicacies. You can add creamy texture with 1/5 fresh avocado that can be mashed or sliced or add two tablespoon of hummus. Spread Greek tzatziki i.e. plain yogurt blended with diced cucumber and ill over your vegetables instead of butter.
  2. Take more rest: Scientists have found that lack of sleep can generate hormonal shifts which will give way to hunger and cravings. All this will make you to munch more food and turn fatter. A 15 year old study has proved that people who regularly sleep for 5 hours every night triggered 16% lower levels of hormone leptin and these indications hints towards getting overweight compared to those who slept a good sleep of over 8 hours. Therefore, get over bed and relax for 7 to 8 hours sleep consistently.
  3. Shop perfect sized-plates: A research conducted by Brian Wansink, PhD, and his mates at the Cornell University discovered that curbing from a 12 inch dinner plate to a 10 inch plate helps in eating 22% less and instead of this your appetite will not crave for more food. The cause behind this is that we start looking in a tangible way like how much more food is remaining in the plate rather than noticing that stomach is filled to the fulsome. Therefore, if your kitchen shelves are filled with 12 inch plates, then go out shopping for 10 inch plate for a healthy diet. And another experiment, by Dr. Wansick concluded over the point that people who ate ice creams in a 34 oz bowls benefited themselves to 30% compared to those who ate in 17 oz bowls.
  4. Savor your meal: Is your daily soap opera coming in between savoring your meal? And have you finished the servings on your plate without tasting it? Don’t let these kind of distractions land up your way as they can lead you to eat more because of which you will uncomfortable afterwards. Therefore, relish your meal by slowing down speed and cherishing every bite. If you feel bored off, then try to make the aura more favorable by listening up to soothing music.
  5. Encourage yourself with the support system: Find up someone in your social circle who can accompany you in achieving the slimness you desire. One study kept a track of around 166 dieters and discovered that the most successful losers who lost their weight participated in weight-loss program with their friends. I am not hinting you to get into a formal program like this, but the key behind this is that blend with a pal gives a supportive feeling where you both can workout together, get on healthy food, and there is a person standing with you who is constantly encouraging with ‘you can do it’ slogan, when you ultimately develop the feelings that only food worth eating are chips, cakes, cookies and so on.
