When you are conscious of what you are eating, you are better able to enjoy your food. Enjoyment of food has a lot more to do with weight loss than people realize.
Consider the alternative. When you are not conscious of what you’re eating, it’s impossible to enjoy your food. You’re eating food for one reason – because it’s there. This can hurt you in both the long run and short run. This type of eating will cause you to eat more and more, without thinking about it.
Never multi task while eating
When you have your meals, have them at the table. Don’t think about anything except the delicious food you’re eating. Sometimes, there’s the tendency to eat while watching TV, reading, browsing the internet, or working. When this happens, your mind is distracted. You’ll not be thinking about the food you’re eating. Naturally, you’ll eat more.
Quantity vs Quality
Always enjoy your food. Take your time. Savor every bite. Appreciate the delicious food you’re eating. Think of food as one of life’s pleasures. Never multi task. It leads to distractions and over eating. Learn to appreciate the quality of your food, and you will reduce the quantity. In other words, you’ll eat less and lose weight.
During the Super Bowl, I can’t possibly estimate the total number of pounds that were gained by people who watched the big event.
There are a lot more things on TV besides the Super Bowl. Who said you have to eat while you watch TV?
Watch TV and use the commercials to your advantage
Most of the time, when you watch TV, you can’t wait for the commercial. This is the perfect time to go to the refrigerator and grab a snack.
Let me suggest another way to get yourself excited in anticipation of a commercial. Instead of going to the refrigerator, use the commercial time to get in a few minutes on the treadmill. Or, you can use this time walking up and down the stairs. Perhaps you can do a few sit ups, push ups or jumping jacks. You get the point?
Do something during the commercials besides eating. Get the adrenaline working. Get the heart beating. After the commercial, site back down and watch TV. You’ll feel so much more relaxed. This sounds ridiculous, but it works. I’ve tried it many times. We don’t recommend strategies and tips unless they’ve been tried and proven.
Every little thing makes a difference. Within a year, you’ll lose 30 pounds.
When I was in high school, I had to get down to a certain weight to play football. I asked my coach if I could have some water, and he said, “Water is fattening.” That’s not even a myth. That’s ridiculous.
It’s important to the body to drink water
You can’t survive more than 3 days without water. You can survive up to 40 days without food. Good ole H2O is the cornerstone of survival. So, how do you lose weight when you drink water?
When you think you’re hungry, you’re not really hungry. You may be one of two. First, you may just want something in your stomach. Second, you might just be thirsty. Whichever the case, water is going to satisfy you. This means, you’re not hungry anymore. You’re not going to snack.
In order to lose weight, the body has to burn fat and get rid of toxins. Without water, it can’t do this. In summary, you’re not going to lose weight unless you drink water. It’s that simple.
Drink water, 8 glasses every day, follow our other weight loss tips and you’ll lose 10 pounds in a week.
There is a myth that a glass of wine before bedtime will help you sleep. This is not true. On the other hand, a glass with your dinner will contribute a great deal towards weight loss. First, drink it with your meal, and not close to bedtime. Second, if possible, drink red wine at room temperature. It’s much better for you.
How wine is good for ‘Health’ and ‘Weight Loss’
I’ll start with good health. This is more important. There are two reasons it’s healthy. First, it’s all natural. It comes from pure grapes. Second, wine is good for your blood. It thins your blood, and reduces the risk of heart disease.
Almost all wines contain resveratrol, a natural substance found on the skin of grapes. This breaks down fat, and reduces fat in the body.
A good vintage will also cut down on your sugar cravings. You’ll not be inclined to have those late night snacks that will destroy any effort to lose weight.
Try this. I wouldn’t be surprised if you lost at least 6 pounds in one week.
Another interesting fact is, heavy drinkers have a slight weight gain, while non-drinkers have a heavy weight gain. This is assuming the people in question are not weight conscious.
Olive oil is one of the healthiest substances you can consume. Did you know that olive oil has another major benefit?
As you eat foods that taste good, and have a familiar flavor, you stimulate your brain. Being familiar with these foods, and the pleasure from eating them, the brain will be programmed in a hunger mode. This means, the brain will stimulate the body to eat more foods. The body will gain weight.
Try taking two tablespoons of olive oil each day. Take these between meals. This is very important. As you do this, the brain will notice a very unfamiliar taste, and will be programmed in a starvation mode. As the body reacts, you’ll notice that you are less inclined to eat. This has nothing to do with starving yourself, as the mode implies. You simply will not want to eat as much. The olive oil will significantly lower your appetite. Naturally, when this occurs, you will eat less, and you will lose weight.
This is just a little thing. All together, they make a tremendous difference. Remember, losing weight successfully is always a combination of many little things.

Yesterday morning, I was in the downtown area of the City where I live. I ran into an old friend I hadn’t seen for years. We said our hello’s, and then started talking about old times.
