Eat a big lunch and a smaller dinner; this will enable you to consumer fewer calories before you go to bed and give you ample time to burn them off.
Many people often snack due to boredom, not necessarily hunger. So next time you feel the munchies coming, make a conscious effort to drink water instead.
Speaking of water, replace at least one of your sugary drinks (soda, energy drink, juice, etc.) each day with a bottle of water.
Plant a garden. Not only will it give you a sense of accomplishment at all your hard work, but home-grown vegetables are delicious and good for you!
Keep your fridge stocked with cut up veggies and fruits. They make for convenient, delicious, and healthy snacks especially during the warm summer months.
Don’t cook for 8 when you only have 4 people for dinner; having the extra food can lead to overeating. Avoid this by carefully planning proper portions.
Avoid fast food restaurants! Well, at least as much as you can. There will be times during work or if you are on a busy schedule, when you need to grab something fast. In this case, order something more healthy than a fatty burger and greasy fries. Try a salad or other more “healthy” item on the menu.
In conjunction with the previous tip, start bringing your lunch to work every day if you usually eat out. You will eat more healthy and save more money.
Drink skim or 1% milk.
When planning fun activities for friends and family, try planning something exercise-oriented, such as a friendly soccer match or a scenic hike.
Take the stairs instead of the elevator or escalator.
