People all around the globe have been fighting excess weight for centuries. Staying in shape has never been easy. We keep inventing new diets, workout routines, and pills to help us get slim and trim.
Here is a list of top 7 tips to help you shed some weight.
1. The French Approach: Do not Skip Lunch.
The French are famous for their cuisine. Their menu mainly consists of cheese and red wine. Both are low in carbs. This might be the reason why in France people are quite slim. The biggest meal is eaten in-between 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. The French do not usually snack and their portions are relatively small. Although their lunch is rich in calories, there is plenty time to burn them later in the day.
2. The Latin American Approach: Eating with Family or Friends.
Invite your family or friends to dinner. Let them join you. Having a talk with close people will distract you from food and you will feel full even after a light dinner. Usually it takes 15-20 minutes for your stomach to send the signal to your brain to inform it that you are full. When we are surrounded by others we tend to eat slower and consume smaller amounts of food. Communication with people during a meal prevents you from overeating.
