Go to the food properly is quite difficult. Especially if you are used to in what does not deny. Australian nutritionist Claire Collins gave nine tips to learn how to eat properly.
According to her, it does not need to rely on willpower, but instead use the power limit - a conscious decision to avoid situations in which you need willpower to abandon your favorite foods.
Top 9 strategies that will help avoid temptation:
1. Keep a fruit bowl in a prominent place in the kitchen, while the rest hide food in the refrigerator or place in opaque containers.
2. When going to the supermarket, make a list in advance, which is not the cookie, chocolate bars, and processed foods. Studies show that those who adhere to the preliminary plan, eat more fruits and vegetables than those who go to the store without a list.
3. Eat something useful before you go with friends for a coffee, and you do not have to look at the menu, swallow saliva and repeat, like a mantra, "I just coffee, please." A study of 22000 American adults found that those who drink coffee or diet drinks are also harmful to eat more food (eg, fast food).
4. Avoid snacking chocolates and other sweets.
5. Develop a healthy food policy in the workplace, to the meetings were always water and fruit.
6. Always keep close to an apple or other fruit (in a drawer, purse, backpack or car) to be hungry, do not be tempted by chocolate bar.
7. Do not put a lot on the plate of food, in order to avoid the syndrome of "clean plate", forcing you to eat up even the fact that you do not want to eat up. Studies show that people eat about 92% of what is applied currently. If you still want to eat more - better add a salad plate.
8. Do not give in to the action, prompting buy products "in reserve". According to studies, people who buy products in large packages, eat more than those who prefer a standard package.
9. If you are dealing with a buffet, first examine the entire range and choose the most useful of the proposals.
Research shows that most people gain what they see first. So if you organize buffet, put the most useful products are as close as possible to the guests.
In addition, Claire believes that if you want to stop, "fly" with diet and constantly snacking "automatically" take the time to develop the right strategy.
Plan your meals in advance to avoid impulses to eat or drink something that will not make you good.
