Tip 2: Be choosy with the type of snacks you eat at night
Most at times you feel hungry again after supper, and you find ourselves eating a high calorie snack before going to bed. This act alone is dangerous to your health because you do not work off the energy the food provides before going to bed. The energy is later accumulated and turned into fat. So you can now see how important it is to stick to low-calorie snack, or to be on a safer side, avoid snacking as a whole at night.

Tip 3: Enjoy your favourite foods
It is not  a must that you should completely stop eating those foods you love. What is important is that you should consume those foods in moderation. Simply reduce the rate and size at which you consume your unhealthy food and snacks, and try not to eat them more often.

Tip 4: Eat several small meals during the day
It is often difficult to manage your calories when you eat 2 or 3 big meals per day, as you become very hungry in between meals and often overeat. To make it easier on yourself, eat 4 or 5 smaller meals a day.

Tip 5: Include protein in every meal

Tip 6: Add spices to your foods
Research has shown that adding spices or chilies to your food can help you eat less. The reason for this is because it stimulates your taste buds, which makes you feel more satisfied.

Tip 7: Fill your store with healthy, convenient foods
It is a lot easier to eat healthy if you only have healthy food in your house. You should also make sure that it is easy-to-make food, so that you will not be tempted to buy take-aways when you don’t have time to cook.

Tip 8: Replace carbs for some vegetables
When you eat less carbohydrates, and more vegetables, you cut down on calories and make it easier to lose weight

Tip 9: Always eat breakfast
Although you might think that skipping breakfast is a good way to cut down on calories, but in the long run it can actually be a bad choice. When you do not eat breakfast, you can become hungry before lunch and have snacks that will get you calorie count soaring higher.

When you do not get enough sleep, you feel tired and don’t have energy. When you don’t have energy, your body craves food in order to get some energy. Then you tend to eat all the wrong things and consume too many calories. It is as simple as that.

Tip 15: Understand portion sizes
It is important to understand how big your portions should be. Use a kitchen scale in order to get an idea of what the right amount of food is for your diet. When it comes to snacks; split it up into portions instead of eating it straight from the package.

When you eat the right foods, you can afford to eat more of it. Fruits and vegetables will also help you feel fuller, and supply you with vitamins and fiber that you need.

Alcoholic drinks can quickly add up in your daily calorie count. Since alcohol is very high in calories, you should try and steer clear of it as far possible.

When you feel hungry or want a sugary snack, try some sugarless gum instead. A lot of times when we think we are hungry, we are just bored, and want something to nibble on. Plus, it will make your breath minty fresh, adding to your oral health.

Tip 19: Keep a food diary
When keeping track of what you eat every day makes you more aware of the calories that you take in and might help you think twice before going off-track.

Tip 20: Celebrate success – but not with food!
The last but not the least tips. Set yourself some smaller goals at certain milestones along the way to your goal weight. But do not go and mess up the hard work with an entire pizza! Instead, buy yourself something nice like that pair of shoes you wanted, a new Smartphone or a DVD player.
