Exercise Free Tips for Losing Weight.

This one is from the April 23, 2012 issue of OK magazine.

1. Drink Water: Water keeps you hydrated and feeling full longer.

2. Eat Veggies: Pack along crunchy, raw vegetables, like broccoli or snow peas, for a high-fiber, low-cal midday snack.

3. Share: Split an appetizer or dessert with your dinner companion. You’ll save calories (and money) but not feel deprived.

4. Use smaller Plates: When cutting portions, eat meals on a smaller plate. Psychologically, it feels more satisfying than eating a small portion on a half-empty plate.

5. Enjoy Fruit, not Fruit Juice: Fruit juice has a lot of calories and can be sweetened with sugar. A piece of fruit is often 100 calories or less and contains fiber.

6. Don’t Go Hungry: Eating at regular times helps prevent binging and keeps your blood sugar at a constant level.

7. Don’t Drink Calories: By cutting out sweetened colas and sugary coffee drinks, you could save 200 calories or more per drink!

8. Get Enough Sleep: People have a tendency to eat more when they’re sleep-deprived, so get a good eight hours in to feel your best and stick to your diet.

9. Take One Day Completely Off: That’s rightL You should allow yourself one cheat day to eat whatever you want. It’s suggested that eating more calories once a week increases fat loss by ensuring that your metabolic rate doesn’t slow down from an extended low-calorie diet.

(Note. I left out one of the tips because it suggests using a supplement that I don’t know anything about and that I don’t endorse.)
