How To Eat Correctly

Eat only at the table. Don’t eat on the couch or at the kitchen counter.

Don’t work while eating. Separate all of your activities from your meals, so you can concentrate on what and how much you’re eating.

Eat slowly and chew each bite completely to decrease your appetite.

Don’t eat anything for the last three or four hours of your day. Once you’ve had dinner, be done for the night.

Read labels carefully. Some low fat items are very high in calories.

Serve yourself normal portions of food. Three ounces of meat or a half cup of rice are plenty in one meal.

Eat three small meals and two snacks daily instead of two or three huge meals.

Don’t starve yourself! Skipping meals only tricks your body into thinking its survival is threatened, and it will hold onto its fat stores for dear life.

Don’t nibble on things throughout the day. Some tidbits contain hundreds of calories.

Use a smaller plate than usual for dinner. You’ll feel like you ate more than you actually did.

Normaly people’s needs of caffeine and sugar increase during the afternoon. Have some fruit, yogurt or crackers on hand to combat this.

To slow yourself down, eat with the opposite hand you usually eat with.
