Drink water – Drinking water throughout the day can help maintain energy and prevent overeating, because it can create the feeling of “fullness”.
Cut portion size – At times, a person’s eyes can be bigger than their stomach – figuratively speaking. Smaller portions can help decrease calorie consumption, therefore aiding in weight loss.
Avoid stress eating – Many factors can contribute to stress, including work, social life, and even family. However tempting it may be to eat to deal with these problems, stress eating is actually counterintuitive as it may lead to additional stress related to body image and overall health.
Eat fruits and vegetables – Replacing unhealthy snacks, such as potato chips or beef jerky, with fruits and vegetables may have a positive impact on your diet and overall health. Apples, bananas, broccoli, and other fruits and vegetables are low in sodium and can be an excellent source of key nutrients.
