Eat Slowly!

It takes about 20 minuutes for your brain to get the "full" signal from your stomach. Eating fast almost guarantees over-eating. When you feel comfortable,STOP EATING.

Try to eat your fruit a couple of hours before or after a meal. This will give you more energy and you will feel less hungry. Digestion will improve too.

Believe in yourself. This is easy. Don't quit and you will see results.

Sueanne, a great tip.

One thing I like to do is eat my meals on a luncheon plate...and I put dessert on a saucer...for some reason, the smaller dishes
make me feel like I am getting alot. ha ha ha.

I no longer skip breakfast..and that is a must for people trying to keep your weight down.
If you skip breakfast, you will overeat later in the day.

Exercise before eating. Even a ten minute walk can decrease your appetite and prevent you from over eating.

Most diets call for 8 ounces of milk and 4 ounces of fruit juice. Check your glassware. Having the exact size glass ensures the correct serving amount.

Not getting enough shuteye can pack on the pounds. Luckily, regular exercise promotes sleep, so you can fight weight gain with a one-two punch.

Eating fish instead of red meat saves you 90 calories per serving.

Carry healthy snacks

Start to carry around some fruit or nuts to chew on to distract yourself from hunger.
