You’ve heard it before – maintaining weight loss from a strict diet is difficult, and most people put on more weight than they lose after their diets are over. The trick to losing weight and keeping it off is to make gradual lifestyle changes. Each time you solidify a habit, make another.
For example, you can start serving more vegetables with each meal. Grains and meats typically fill up plates, with vegetables as a small side. Change the way you think about them. Colorful vegetables should make up the majority of your meal, with whole grains and lean proteins on the side.
Eating slower and pausing between bites will help you identify when you’re really full. People tend to eat what’s in front of them and only notice that they are satisfied when it’s all gone. Change this habit by limiting what you put on your plate. If you order a full sub, only take out half and put the other half away immediately. If you’re still hungry when you’re done, you can always go back for it, but you may be surprised how satisfied you feel with only half.
