Very simple eating habits that can greatly reduce your weight gain
Keep meal sizes under control:
Meal control is a process of understanding serving sizes and the caloric content per serving. To do this effectively, it is necessary to read and understand nutrition labels. Some calorie content is easier to understand than others. For instance, a nutrition label for an energy bar will likely reflect the nutritional content of just one bar, as this is one serving.
Make servings of suitable size:
However, most other foods are not sold in single serving packages, such as rice or spaghetti. Nutrition labels for most foods list nutritional content for a serving size that is based on the total weight of the uncooked food. To a person new to reading nutrition labels, this can be quite confusing. Some labels, however, also use a relative cup size along with the weight, such as ½ cup, to aid in assessing serving size.
Keep a record your meals:
Many foods list only a weight in grams, which is a metric system standard of measure of which most Americans are not familiar. It can be difficult to know much rice is in a serving size of 48 grams. The solution is to purchase a small digital kitchen scale, which are easy to use and inexpensive.
Divide your meals:
Eat six small meals instead of eating three large meals a day. Eat smaller portions and eat more often keeps your metabolism revved so you burn more calories. Drink at least eight glasses of water daily to flush out toxins from your body and keep you hydrated. Water is also an appetite suppressant; drink a large glass of water to help curb your appetite when you are hungry.
Be careful in selection of your food:
You should make sure that you are taking all the necessary nutritional components in your meal. Diet is a very important key to rapid weight loss. What you eat plays a crucial role in losing pounds and inches. Eliminate foods high in carbohydrates, refined sugars and foods high in fat is very important in any weight loss regimen, but is essential if you want to lose weight quickly.
